Rory McIlroy is almost certain to miss next week’s Open Championship after announcing Monday that he has a “total rupture” of a ligament in his left ankle.
McIlroy, who was scheduled to play in this week’s Scottish Open, said on Instagram that he injured his ankle while playing soccer with friends on Saturday. McIlroy is set for further testing on his ankle in the next 48 hours, and he did not offer a timetable for his return.
“Continuing to assess extent of injury and treatment play day by day,” he wrote. “Rehab already started…..Working hard to get back as soon as I can.”
A McIlroy spokesperson has told media outlets that McIlroy will definitely miss the Scottish Open. There is “10 percent chance” he will attempt to defend his title at St. Andrews.
