Saturday, 27 May 2017 : World number two Rory McIlroy has withdrawn from his final warm-up event for the US Open due to a rib injury.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