Are you counting down the days until your next payday? We all are, aren't we? Well, all of us except Rory McIlroy, that is.

If McIlroy is able to win The Tour Championship by Coca-Cola this weekend, he stands to rake in $10 million in bonus money. That seems like it'd provide him with all the extra motivation he needs to go out and get a W. But earlier today, he was asked about the idea of winning 10 mill, and his response was basically "meh."

"Luckily, that amount of money doesn't sort of mean much to me anymore," he said. "It will go in the bank and, if I want to buy something nice, I will. I mean, like, it's nice to think that you could win $10 million this week, but that's not what excites me. It excites me to play well and to try and win."

To which we say: MUST BE NICE.

It's crazy to hear someone say that $10 million "doesn't sort of mean much." But McIlroy is worth upwards of $90 million, so can you blame him for being bored by another $10 million? Ha. OK, maybe you can.
