Rory McIlroy

A scan has revealed that the back problem Rory McIlroy had at the Players Championship was a recurrence of his injury from earlier this year.

McIlroy said on Monday evening that an MRI scan had revealed “no new injury, rather a low grade response to the rib joint I injured earlier in the year”.

“As of now I am still entered into the BMW PGA Championship,” said McIlroy.
