Rory McIlroy probably will think twice before playing some soccer during golf season next time.
The reigning Open Championship winner is unlikely to defend his title in two weeks at St. Andrew’s after he ruptured an ankle ligament in a “soccer kickabout” Saturday, he announced via Instagram on Monday morning.
The world No. 1 didn’t give any other indication as to how long he might be out of action. McIlroy won the 2014 tournament at Royal Liverpool, where he edged out Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia to go wire-to-wire for the win. McIlroy ranks fifth in FedEx cup points this season with two wins under his belt, winning the Wells Fargo Championship and the World Golf Championships Match Play tournament.
