Ailing McIlroy uncertain on rest of season

From ESPN - August 13, 2017

CHARLOTTE -- Following a final-round 68 at the PGA Championship, Rory McIlroy admitted that a recurring rib injury has rendered his upcoming schedule in doubt.

"I do not know what I am going to do," the four-time major champion said. "You might not see me until next year. You might see me in a couple of weeks' time. It really depends."

McIlroy has been sidelined for more than a month on two separate occasions this year. After his round, he intimated that he still does not believe he is fully healed.

"I can feel my left rhomboid going into spasm," he said. "It's sort of the way it has been the last few weeks. I have upped my practice coming into these two events because I wanted to feel like I was in a good place in my game. But, yeah, right now it's a tough one because I go out there and play and shoot decent scores, but when I come off the course, I feel my left rhomboid going into spasm. Inside of my left arm goes numb."
