Reports swirl regarding a McIlroy practice round at Whistling Straits

A Monday report on the condition of World No. 1 Rory McIlroy and his injured ankle seems to have dashed any hopes of a potential return to competition by the PGA Championship.

On Monday, Reuters quoted “a reliable source” in a report that McIlroy had scheduled a Saturday practice round at Whistling Straits, site of next week’s PGA Championship. McIlroy, of course, has been on the bench since rupturing the anterior ligament in a friendly game of soccer just before the British Open.

In the report, Reuters noted that McIlroy’s manager Sean O’Flaherty did not return comment.

On Tuesday, the Irish Golf Desk published a report debunking the rumor and citing McIlroy’s publicist Terry Prone.

According to the golf site, Prone, when asked about the Reuters report on Sunday night, wrote: “Not booked for such a round. Still going through the ankle rehab process.”

McIlroy already missed the British Open and will also miss this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
