Rory McIlroy reveals heart issue

Rory McIlroy reveals he will need regular medical checks because of heart irregularity Rory McIlroy: 'Really bad' viral infection led to heart scare
Rita Gibson | 13 January, 2018, 13:45

Rory McIlroy says the rib that bothered him throughout 2017 is completely fine, but a recent MRI revealed an issue with his heart.

The Northern Ireland golfer will return from four-month layoff from a rib injury when he takes to the field of the Abu Dhabi Championship on Thursday.

"I've got a bit of an irregularity with my heart that I have to keep on top of", McIlroy told the Telegraph.

Turns out Rory McIlroy's injured rib wasn't his only health concern in 2017.

He said: "It's been 10 years that I've been a pro and to me that's incredible".

AFC Divisional Playoffs: Three things to watch in Jaguars-Steelers
Getting back McDonald and Gilbert creates a huge impact in the running game, both in the idea of schematic and depth purposes. Roethlisberger has turned it around since then, helping lead the Steelers to a 10-1 record the rest of the regular season.

The Irish golfer traced the condition back to a bad viral infection he had 18 months ago in China, leading to some scar tissue and the thickening of his left ventricle. "I needed the reset that I've just had".

The four-time major victor cut short his 2017 schedule in order to undergo treatment on a rib injury, which he says has now healed, and news of his latest health setback had led to concerns over his plans for this year. "Hey, I was planning on doing that anyway", he said. Let's just say that between now and when I signed off previous year, I feel way more optimistic, focused, motivated, purposeful. "I'm fit and healthy and can't wait to get my 2018 season started in Abu Dhabi next week".

"I need to get back on that track and this year my goals are to add to my major tally and get back to world No. 1, winning more times than anyone else", he told the Telegraph.

The 2016 FedExCup champion will get a chance to test the strength of his heart with plans to play possibly six times in seven weeks on the PGA TOUR once he returns.

"I don't care about the world rankings as I think about number of wins, the ability of the players against me, the number of majors the others have". He's also expected to play in the Dubai Desert Classic, and make his first career appearance at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
