Rory McIlroy: Whistling Straits or Whistling in the Wind?

WITH THE PGA CHAMPIONSHIP LOOMING, there's a lot of speculation about the status of World No. 1 Rory McIlroy, who sat out the Open Championship because of a severe ankle injury.

Will Rory be at Whistling Straits for the year's last major? Or will the defending PGA champion be whistling in the wind?

There have been several reports in recent days.

Reuters reported according to a reliable source that "World number one golfer Rory McIlroy has scheduled a Saturday practice round at Whistling Straits."

Irish golf journalist Brian Keogh reported McIlroy was not set for a Saturday practice round at the PGA Championship site, according to Terry Prone, who told Keogh "still going through ankle rehab process."

Reports have also said McIlroy's recovery and rehabilition are "progressing well," and, as is his habit, Rory has published images and video on social media of his ankle and more. He is definitely keeping everyone in suspense.

It would be a shame if Rory missed a second consecutive major and a chance to defend his title, but so would a rushed comeback that risked further injury. More news about his PGA status is expected late this week.
