Rory McIlroy may miss the rest of 2017 due to injury

Rory McIlroy may miss the rest of 2017 due to injury

Thomas is tied for fourth at -5 for the tournament after shooting a 2-under, 69 on Sunday.

This Day was moving at the PGA Championship, all right " both up and down.

Lahiri said the firmness and speed of the new greens at Quail Hollow has been perplexing.

McIlroy was referring to the Masters, which is the only major championship he hasn't won, meaning a Masters win would complete the career Grand Slam for him.

After taking a penalty shot, he played into the rough before chipping on to the green. But this time it was worse with a double bogey and a bogey on first two holes. "And yeah, I have a lot of opportunities".

Despite his finish he was still happy with his first two rounds and confident he can make a move over the weekend if he continues to putt well. "I guess we got some rain last night".

Rory McIlroy finished the final round of the PGA Championship with a 3-under 68 and was not sure when he is going to play again. "It's sort of the way it has been the last few weeks", McIlroy said.

Now, he's not sure what he's going to do. It could be in a few weeks when the FedEx Cup playoffs begin. Or he might not play until next year. So I just need to hit some more fairways tomorrow. "But take him out of the equation, I feel like I'm still right there in the tournament".

Forced to go back to the drop zone, he hit a 109-yard approach to 13 feet but two putted for a six to slip back to one over par for the Championship.

The Queenslander had endured an up-and-down round but was still in touch with leader Kevin Kisner heading to the last.

"They were better today, I guess", Scott said, measuring his words as he spoke to a small group of reporters. A day earlier, he paraphrased a line from the movie when describing how he didn't want to tinker with a hot streak.

No word on whether Stroud also would try to breathe through his eyelids, as LaLoosh was instructed.

It's not Jason's Day. He holed out a 45-foot escape from a greenside bunker. "And I think that is the department where I've struggled this week so far", he said.

Putting brilliantly, the Clara man raced to five-under par after 15 holes and was tied for seventh on two-under par before his momentum was halted by an untimely weather delay. The scoring average is 4.21.

McIlroy put off seeing a doctor to focus on preparing for the PGA Championship, but was flying home Sunday night for Northern Ireland to seek medical advice.

Kisner had a one-shot lead over Hideki Matsuyama and Chris Stroud, two players coming off victories last week.

Refusing to blame the delay, he added: "I came out and I hit one bad shot".
