McIlroy pulls out of BMW PGA Championship with rib injury

Posted May 25, 2017

Finishing second at Sawgrass lifted Poulter from 195th in the world rankings to 80th and sealed his place in the end-of-season FedEx Cup play-offs on the PGA Tour, meaning he could accept an invite from the European Tour to play the first Rolex Series event this week.

"And for the European Tour, it's exciting times".

"It's a disappointing decision to have to make, but I have to ensure I make a full recovery". But it seems as if this event is experiencing a bit of a bounce back this time around as most of the top Euros contend for their version of The Players. It's a work in progress, but overall I don't think we're in a bad spot and it will be nice to pick up some form this week.

Garcia has only entered the BMW PGA twice in the last 17 years.

Mcllroy won the BMW PGA Championship in 2014 courtesy of a final-round 66 and was set to be the headline act at this year's tournament.

"I would not want to miss Birkdale", added Poulter, who was second behind Padraig Harrington the last time Birkdale hosted the Open in 2008. His performance certainly proved to me that he can compete with the best players in the world, and I have every confidence in the next few years, he will be winning a major championship. Everyone knows Wentworth and it really should be one of the best courses on the rota that we play.

Alonso had an "overboost" during his second lap, which briefly costs a driver horsepower, and forced the Spaniard to downshift. In fact, Dixon was the last non-Penske driver to win a pole, claiming the Verizon P1 Award at Watkins Glen in September 2016.

"I don't like this golf course".

"I'm personally very pleased that it has been changed and because of that, I am extremely excited to go out there and play tomorrow because I would love to walk out of Wentworth Golf Club and say 'I absolutely love it.'" One of the biggest upgrades is to the greens which have all been relaid.

"I can remember being a kid, coming around watching Seve and Woosie and Faldo and all the guys play this great golf course. And when you're in a good frame of mind, generally good things happen". And he played like someone that was doing it for five or six years, like it was just another round of golf. He narrowly lost in a playoff to Luke Donald in 2011, he was then leading after 5 holes on the final round in 2013 and finally he started a year ago 2 shots behind the lead and ahead of Chris Wood, who eventually won.
