Rory McIlroy tears ankle ligament, set to miss British Open

The British Open 2015 could be played without the No. player Rory McIlroy after rupturing a ligament in his left ankle while playing soccer. Absolutely, it would be a devastation for McIlroy if he will miss the British Open 2015.

Rory McIlroy showed the world his injury by posting a photo of himself on Instagram on Monday morning and said he was trying to make it back for next week’s British Open at St Andrews.

“Total rupture of left ATFL (ankle ligament) and associated joint capsule damage in a soccer kickabout with friends on Saturday,” wrote McIlroy. “Continuing to assess extent of injury and treatment plan day by day. Rehab already started….. Working hard to get back as soon as I can.”

McIlroy clearly stated that he will treat it day by day. McIlroy hasn’t ruled out himself yet in the British Open. Nobody knows, except him, if he really could play at St. Andrews. McIlroy is hoping that the total rupture would be immediately get healed.

Without McIlroy, it paves the way for the rising star Jordan Spieth to have control of the field and be the favorite when the British Open starts. When Spieth won his second major title, it opens up to a new rivalry between McIlroy and Spieth.
