McIlroy (rib injury) to skip European Tour flagship event

McIlroy (rib injury) to skip European Tour flagship event

McIlroy said last week at The Players that he reinjured himself in preparation for the week at TPC Sawgrass, his first PGA Tour event since the Masters and getting married.

"The greens are spectacular and, aesthetically, the golf course is considerably stronger".

World number 16 Tyrrell Hatton, who finished seventh a year ago, described the new greens as "100 times better" and Poulter is hoping they can help him build on his runners-up finish in the Players Championship earlier this month.

Poulter said: 'I can't emphasise how big a week that was and now I'm really excited to be here because I know a similar performance will get me into the US Open and The Open this summer.

Rory McIlroy will sit out the European Tour flagship event next week to make sure a recurring rib injury heals.




"I would not want to miss Birkdale", added Poulter, who was second behind Padraig Harrington the last time Birkdale hosted the Open in 2008.

"That tank's been pretty empty for quite some time".

"I think the overriding thing for players will be the greens". "The focus is to play well the next few weeks, make that top 50 (in the world) and obviously winning takes care of it all".

The world's No. 2 ranked golfer, Rory McIlroy, has officially withdrawn from the upcoming 2017 BMW PGA Championship. "The course is playing pretty firm, as well, so that could be interesting, and the rough is certainly a lot thicker than I've seen it in the last three years".

World number one Maguire came agonisingly close to winning the coveted NCAA title when she finished joint-second on 218 (+2) with Jennifer Kupcho (Wake Forest), just a shot behind victor Monica Vaughn of Arizona State.
