I cannot wait for Mayweather versus Pacquiao on Saturday night.  I had a ticket within my grasp but just couldn't make peace with the cost of the adventure given my responsibilities at home.  

But one man who has vowed to be there is Rory McIlroy.  Assuming he makes the quarter finals of the World Matchplay on Saturday a private jet will be waiting to bring him on the short flight from San Francisco to Las Vegas after his match.

It will be tight though. I see the TV coverage has play at Harding Park scheduled until 7:30 p.m. on Saturday. With Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. set to enter the ring just before 8.30pm, Rory will need to get his match finished early or get a helping hand from organizers and be first out to make it. Given he is the crowd puller, that might not happen.

He still seemed to be suffering from his Ryder Cup time zone confusion when he was asked earlier in the week.

"Nothing that a few quick birdies won't change if I try and win 7 and 6," McIlroy said. "If the fight starts at maybe 10 o'clock like they usually do, then it should be OK."

It will be over by 10pm!
