McIlroy Officially Out of The Open

McIlroy confirms that he will not be defending his title

Rory McIlroy officially pulled out of The Open at St Andrews due to his ankle injury. McIlroy informed his supporters through a post on his Instagram page.

“After much consideration, I have decided not to play in the Open Championship at St. Andrews. I’m taking a long term view of this injury and, although rehab is progressing well, I want to come back to tournament play when I feel 100% healthy and 100% competitive. Thank you for all your support and best wishes. I hope to be back on the course as soon as I can....”

Paul McGinley weighed in on the matter, saying “I think it’s a shame for Rory and it’s a shame for golf because it’s not often The Open is in St Andrews.” “There’s something special and magical about it being in St Andrews and Rory is going to miss that.”

“It could be five years before he gets a chance to play an Open again at St Andrews. It’s sad for Rory, it’s sad for the game, it’s sad for the fact that Jordan Spieth has won the first two majors and I think St Andrews is really going to suit Rory but hopefully he recovers quickly.”
