McIlroy will play again in 2017

Rory Mc Ilroy has completed a third successive year without adding to his four Majors

Rory McIlroy, injuries and all, has committed to play at least the first four FedEx Cup event, according to The Telegraph's James Corrigan.

At the end of the USPGA Championship on Sunday - where the world No 4 ensured it would be a third majorless season in succession by finishing 22 - McIlroy revealed that the rib fracture he suffered at the start of the year had led to a back complaint and that a protracted rest would allow it to heal properly.

"I don't know what I'm going to do", he said, referring to his upcoming schedule. You might see me in a couple weeks' time.

And his manager confirmed via email that McIlroy intends to contest the play-offs and try to win the overall FedEx Cup title - and United States dollars 10million (£7.8million) bonus - for the second year in succession. But, yeah, right now it's a tough one because I go out there and play and shoot decent scores, but when I come off the course, I feel my left rhomboid going into spasm.

In the aftermath of the PGA, the 28-year-old admitted that he may spend the rest of the calendar year recuperating in a bid to finally solve the issue.

'But then at the same time if you are not capable of playing at your best, why should you play.

However, McIlroy's management company have now confirmed that he does intend to play in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup play-off series.

This year's playoffs begin with the Northern Trust event in NY from Aug 24-27 before the Dell Technologies Championship takes place a week later in Boston.
