Rory McIlroy

World number two Rory McIlroy has withdrawn from next week’s PGA Championship at Wentworth because of a rib injury.

The 28-year-old, who was treated for a stress fracture to his ribs earlier in the year, felt discomfort during the recent Players Championship in Florida.

“I have been advised to take a conservative approach to my recovery,” said McIlroy.
