Saturday, 19 August 2017 : Rory McIlroy plans to play again this year after suggesting last week that he might not compete again in 2017 to aid his recovery from a rib injury.
McIlroy’s management confirmed in an email that the world number four intends to defend his FedEx Cup title.
The world number four shot a 68 to tie for 22nd in the US PGA on Sunday, and has now gone three years without a major victory.
“You might not see me until next year,” McIlroy, 28, had said after the US PGA.
The confirmation from his management followed a tweet from McIlroy announcing details of a competition to play with him in the pro-am before next month’s BMW Championship.
The BMW Championship is the third event in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup play-offs series.
The Northern Irishman won the second play-offs event in 2016 before clinching a £7.8m bonus as he topped the FedEx Cup standings after triumphing at the Tour Championship.
Last year, McIlroy opted to miss the opening Barclays play-offs event before winning the Deutsche Bank Championship a week later.
