Matt Wallace says he understands Rory McIlroy’s preference to focus more on the PGA Tour this season, but he has stressed his own backing for the European Tour.

The 28-year-old Englishman was reacting after McIlroy reportedly described the European Tour as "a stepping stone" and reiterated his desire to focus on US tournaments in 2019 ahead of the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

Wallace, a four-time winner on the European Tour after three titles last season, revealed his joy at playing on his home circuit as he builds towards the season-opening Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, which has been elevated to a Rolex Series event.
