No fresh injury for Rory McIlory scans reveal

No fresh injury for Rory McIlory scans reveal”

Rory McIlroy admitted he felt "handcuffed" by the complexities of the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass after firing a third-round 71 at The Players Championship.

Rory McIlroy will undergo an MRI scan in Belfast on Monday to discover the extent of a back injury which is threatening to blight not only this Players Championship but his entire summer.

North Korea: New long-range missile can carry heavy nuke
On Monday, Russian President Vladimir Putin condemned the launch as "counterproductive, damaging, dangerous". Even before North Korea gave its account of what happened, the launch caught the eye of experts.

But the four-time major victor then bogeyed the fifth and although he did birdie the ninth for the third day running, he was unable to pick up further shots on the par-five 11th or short 12th, where his long-iron tee-shot bounded through the green. It's OK, it's manageable, it's not, obviously not a hundred per cent but it's good enough to get myself around here for the next couple of days. "I have full rotation, I don't have trouble breathing, so all the signs point that it's not going to be too serious, it's just giving me a bit of discomfort".

McIlroy missed events in the Middle East and United States in the early part of this year after suffering a stress fracture to a rib.

He says the four adults and three children from the Philippines and Sri Lanka fear for their safety if they are deported home. At that point, the asylum-seekers went public in an effort to have some control over how they were portrayed in the media.

After playing just 13 tournaments past year due to a foot injury, Poulter had 10 events this season to earn 218 FedEx Cup points or 347,634 USA dollars (£269,755) to remain fully exempt.

"It might just be a flare-up of what happened previously and I just need to rest for a few days and it might be ok". It's hard here to hit it close to give yourself a lot of chances for birdies, and you're just trying to make pars on the difficult holes and take advantage of the par-fives and try to take advantage of holes like the 12th. Hopefully that's what it shows in the scan. "But I scrambled pretty well, and I birdied two of the last three holes to make it somewhat respectable".

US Navy ship collides with South Korean fishing boat
USS Carl Vinson Strike Group deployed in January to take part in an operational construct that hasn't been carried out by the U.S. But there was no report of any casualties from the accident involving the Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser, he added.

"Around Augusta, my body adapted and got used to playing and practicing again", he said. Instead of maybe gradually building it up again, I hit balls for four or five hours on Friday and did the same on Saturday.
