CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - When pickup soccer goes wrong! That's what world number one golfer Rory McIlroy has to be thinking today. He ruptured a ligament in his left ankle this past weekend playing futbol with some of his friends in Northern Ireland.
Did you miss it earlier in this blog when I said he's the number one golfer in the world? Why in the world would he be playing pickup soccer a week before the third major of the year?
He made it official today that he will sit out next week's Open Championship making him the first player to not defend his Open Title since Ben Hogan in 1954.
I know the American women got the juices flowing with their World Cup victory, but seriously?
Get well soon Rory, and leave the soccer to the professionals!!
