Rory McIlroy to carry Irish flag at 2016 Olympics, if he plays for Ireland.
The President of the Irish Olympic Council, Pat Hickey has said that if Rory McIlroy were to declare for Ireland then he would be the number one candidate to carry the Irish flag at the opening ceremony of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.
