Rory McIlroy has little interest in following Jason Day's example and teaming up with a so-called superstar caddie, the Northern Irishman said in the wake of Day's decision to hire the sport's best known bagman.
Day coaxed Steve Williams out of retirement starting at the recent U.S. Open, saying he thought the veteran caddie's experience would be an asset as he tried to play his way back to world number one status.
Williams caddied for Tiger Woods in 13 of the American's 15 major victories.
Day's decision to hire Williams raised the question of whether other top players might follow suit, perhaps trying to lure someone such as Jim 'Bones' Mackay, who worked for Phil Mickelson for 25 years.
McIlroy has been using his lifelong friend Harry Diamond for nearly two years now, with the Northern Irishman saying that he no longer needed an old hand on the bag.
