I love this post. Being a family man is way more important. He has the means to live life if he never makes a dollar again. He can concentrate on family as much as he wants. That makes him a winner no matter what!This is why he's struggling IMO. He seems to be a very caring and empathetic person. That makes a great father and husband, but it can be a distraction to professional life at the beginning of a marriage or at childbirth as he rebalances his priorities and schedules. He'll be fine soon.
I think Rory probably takes his role as a professional golfer seriously, and that includes all the stuff that doesn't happen inside the ropes. I think he's looked to as a role model by a lot of the people out there, as well as a brand ambassador and all the rest.These guys all have so much pressure on them to do endorsements, be social media whiz kids, test/game new products, be the next Tiger or Jack…. and, oh yeah…. Play championship level golf.
I sometimes wonder how one of these guys would do if they just played golf, with the clubs and ball that suited them best and without being so tied up with other “responsibilities”.
