It was roughly a month ago that Rory McIlroy showed up at Whistling Straits to promote the upcoming PGA Championship as the defending champion.
McIlroy’s chances of playing in the 97th PGA Championship could be in jeopardy.
McIlroy is recovering from an ankle injury that he suffered while playing soccer with his friends in early July. As Gary D’Amato reported today in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, McIlroy has informed tournament officials that he will not play in the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational next week, an event that he won a year ago.
The PGA Championship is scheduled for August 13-16 at Whistling Straits.
