Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | TEE BOX -

Rory McIl­roy with­drew from the pres­ti­gious PGA Cham­pi­onship at Went­worth, Eng­land, be­cause of a nig­gling rib in­jury. The 28-year-old four-time ma­jor cham­pion, who only re­turned to ac­tion from a month off fol­low­ing his wed­ding, missed five weeks ear­lier in the sea­son be­cause of the in­jury and ag­gra­vated it at the Players Cham­pi­onship. "Hav­ing had a re­ac­tion to my ear­lier rib in­jury, I have been ad­vised to take a con­ser­va­tive ap­proach to my re­cov­ery which un­for­tu­nately means I have to with­draw from the PGA Cham­pi­onship," the North­ern Ir­ish­man said in a state­ment on the EPGA web­site. "It's a dis­ap­point­ing de­ci­sion to have to make, but I have to en­sure I make a full re­cov­ery. I will now con­tinue the process of pre­par­ing my game for the US Open and the rest of the sea­son."
