Rory McIlroy would love to celebrate new baby with Tour Championship victory

Rory Mc Ilroy celebrates birth of daughter Poppy McIlroy announces birth of daughter

"I'm going to play in many more Tour Championships and it's only going to be the birth of your first child once", he said.

Rory McIlroy has revealed via his social media accounts that his wife Erica has given birth to their baby daughter.

McIlroy, trying to become the first three-time FedEx Cup champion, starts the Tour Championship as the No. 11 seed, meaning he is seven shots behind Dustin Johnson. He went on to thank "the staff at Jupiter Medical Center and Dr Sasha Melendy for their incredible care".

"It's fantastic", McIlroy told reporters. You feel like you get to know your baby while she's still in her mother's belly, but to go from not having met this person to having unconditional love for them from one minute to the next, there's nothing like it in the world.

"Now that I do, anyone that I know that has a child, there's so much more admiration for the mother, what they go through, and it's just incredible". I don't really call it stress. "I mean, maybe this is what I needed, just for everything to happen and go well". But yeah, maybe things just will fall into place.

Whether the Northern Irishman decides to tee it up at the 2020 PGA Tour season finale remains to be seen but his name is listed for Friday's first round 1:30pm tee time.

"I think if you look at fathers in all different sports, golf, tennis, it's not a new lease of life, but it's a different perspective", he added.

"Before I had a family golf was most important, and then once you have a family, golf (is) definitely not the most important".
