Rory McIlroy discloses heart ailment in interview

Former world No 1 Rory Mc Ilroy has revealed that he is suffering from a heart condition Former world No 1 Rory Mc Ilroy has revealed that he is suffering from a heart condition

He says he'll get an electrocardiogram every six months and an MRI once per year.

It sounds as though McIlroy's heart problem can be managed, which is good news for both Rory and fans of golf; the crop of current competitors at the top of the sport is deeper than it's ever been, and McIlroy is a big part of that.

In an interview with British newspaper The Telegraph on Friday, the 28-year-old McIlroy revealed he had contracted a virus in China that, according to tests, has affected his heart. "Hey, I was planning on doing that anyway", McIlroy said.

He said: "It's been 10 years that I've been a pro and to me that's incredible". I just don't feel that now. Any one of them. "I know exactly what I can do".

Rory McIlroy says he has a heart ailment that will have to be monitored regularly but is not expected to affect his play.

McIlroy, who suffered from a rib injury for most of last season, is slated to return to the PGA TOUR at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February after playing in the Middle East on the European Tour.

The four-time Major victor says that it is probably the result of a viral infection that he picked up in 2016.

"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".

"I need to get back on that track and this year my goals are to add to my major tally and get back to world No. 1, winning more times than anyone else", he told the Telegraph. "And I will give myself the best chances this season".

The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, and and event he is yet to win after previously finishing runner-up, will be the first of eight events for the Florida-based McIlroy leading up to April's Masters at Augusta National.
