At 2:20pm on Thursday, July 13th, world number one Rory McIlroy tees up with Jordan Spieth and Zach Johnson at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin.
A little more than a month ago, on July 4th, Rory was playing soccer with some buddies and injured his ankle. He seems pretty confident saying: “It actually feels better when I go at it as hard as I want, because my left foot sort of spins out of the way whenever I hit the driver anyway,” McIlroy said. “So it’s more if my left foot was to stay sort of completely flat, like roll on to the left side like a lot of guys do, then it would obviously probably create a few problems. Because mine sort of spins out of the way, it takes a lot of pressure off it.” (ESPN)
That doesn’t mean it will be easy for Rory to win…while he has been rehabbing and resting, Spieth, JDay, Rickie, Zach Johnson, Bubba and Justin Rose have been playing quite well and are well into having a competitive mindset to win, win, win!
It’s a very exciting week ahead, and you can expect daily recaps all week long!
