McIlroy reveals worrying heart condition


Golf superstar Rory McIlroy said Friday he's planning to play through a heart irregularity that will require biannual testing.

The 28-year-old from Northern Ireland, lacking only a victory at the Masters to complete a career Grand Slam, has bought the former home of South African four-time major victor Ernie Els at the nearby Bear's Club.

Doctors told McIlroy the illness he came down with resulted in the thickening of his left ventricle and he told The Daily Telegraph "there's a bit of scar tissue".

As far as the heart condition, McIlroy said he will have to undergo an echocardiogram every six months and an MRI annually.

Rory McIlroy said a viral infection he contracted 18 months ago in China has led to damage to his heart. "I needed the reset that I've just had". Let's just say that between now and when I signed off previous year, I feel way more optimistic, focused, motivated, purposeful. I don't fear any of them.

McIlroy, 28, is determined to return to the top of the world rankings by the end of 2018 and win at least one more major.

"I don't care about the world rankings as I think about number of wins, the ability of the players against me, the number of majors the others have. And I will give myself the best chances this season". "Everyone knows I haven't won one in the last three years and that is a worry, yeah".

McIlroy will return to action in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship starting Thursday at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club in the United Arab Emirates.
