Rory McIlroy withdrawn from US Open Warm-up

Saturday, 27 May 2017 :  World number two Rory McIlroy has withdrawn from his final warm-up event for the US Open due to a rib injury.

The 28-year-old will miss next week’s Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Ohio.

The Northern Irishman was treated for a stress fracture to his ribs earlier in the year and pulled out of this week’s PGA Championship at Wentworth.

McIlroy originally suffered the rib problem in the close season – a time when he was hitting a lot of balls in practice while trying to decide on new equipment after Nike decided to stop producing clubs.

The injury flared up as he lost a play-off to Graeme Storm at the South African Open in January, and the four-time major winner did not play again until the WGC-Mexico Championship in March.

McIlroy then felt discomfort at the Players Championship at Sawgrass earlier this month and was “advised to take a conservative approach” to his recovery.
