Golf: Defending Champion Might Be Out for Three Month

Defending champion Rory McIlroy is likely to miss the St Andrews 114th open next week's due to injury. While playing football with his friends over the weekend Golf No 1 ruptured ankle ligaments.
Although a spokesman for the Northern Irishman says McIlroy hasn’t ruled himself out of playing in the third major championship of the season at the Old Course completely. McIlroy who announced his injury via twitter and Instagram posted a picture of himself on crutches and wearing a protective boot with the caption “Total rupture of left ATFL (ankle ligament) and associated joint capsule damage in a soccer kickabout with friends on Saturday”.“Continuing to assess extent of injury and treatment plan day by day. Rehab already started..... Working hard to get back as soon as I can”

The 26-year-old McIlroy who won the last year's Open at Royal Liverpool was suppose to compete in this week's Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Gullane but has since withdrawn. It is understood that injuries of this nature as described by McIlroy can keep him out of actions for at least six weeks and maybe even three months and can even require surgery depending on the severity of the rupture.

Like he said all hands are on deck to make sure he gets back into actions as quick as possible as his camp would want to prevent a worst-case scenario were the injury would prevent McIlroy from defending his US PGA Championship title at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin in August.
