McIlroy said on Wednesday that he still hates LIV Golf, but would rather have Saudi Arabia's PIF as a partner

Rory McIlroy said he and Justin Rose agreed not to speak about the PGA Tour and DP World Tour's LIV Golf merger as they teed off at the Canadian Open.

It is the first tournament since the shock merger was announced on Tuesday.

McIlroy and Rose both snubbed joining LIV Golf, which is funded by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF).

"Rosie and I said, 'All right, no chatting until lunch so that we can actually concentrate on what we're doing out there,'" McIlroy said.

"We started to get in a conversation walking down the first [hole] and we're like, 'No, let's stop this. Let's just focus on our golf and we'll say what we want to say when we get inside.'
