Injured McIlroy to play through the pain

14 Mai 2017

Rory McIlroy admits he has booked in for another MRI on his back after dealing with another dose of pain at this week's Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass. Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy also played in the afternoon, which was getting hotter and drier as the course was getting even firmer and faster.

He hit three birdies over the duration of the day. But unless you get an image taken of it and you know exactly what's going on you don't know.

"I'm going for an MRI scan on Monday just to make sure it's not serious and then I'll see what we do from there".

Elsewhere, Scott Henry's miserable run continued on the European Tour, where he has now missed ten cuts in a row this season after making an early exit from the Open de Portugal. "I've had a couple good practice days the last two days, so I'm excited to get the tournament started".

"But I've learned that over the last few years".

Rahm is looking to become just the third player to win the Players in his first try, joining Hal Sutton (1983) and Craig Perks (2002). "When I did drive it in the fairway, I wasn't hitting it close to the hole, so it makes for a very frustrating day".

Reds on alert as top four bid reaches crunch time
Liverpool have set themselves up for a nervy end to the season following their goalless draw against Southampton last weekend. On the other hand, Liverpool, who are chasing a top four finish, have won their last three away games.

But the four-time major victor, whose back was heavily strapped, is confident the problem is not a recurrence of the rib-joint injury that sidelined him for seven weeks at the start of the year, and he insisted his back actually felt better than during the second round.

However, with blustery winds making scoring hard on Saturday, the 2008 champion surged up the leaderboard with a third round of 67 to lie just a shot off the clubhouse lead held by Argentina's Emiliano Grillo.

He added: "It's not any worse, which is a good thing, I guess that's positive. So I maybe should have just taken it a bit easier over the weekend, but I was excited to get back and excited to play again so maybe being a little over keen was detrimental".

"Hopefully that's what it shows in the scan next week". It's in the same place as before, but it's so much better.

"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".
