At the time of writing, it’s unclear whether he’s actually in jeopardy of withdrawing from the tournament itself, but this will be something to monitor leading up to Thursday. We certainly hope that everything is OK in the McIlroy household.
He enters this week with a T49, a win, and a missed cut at the Masters over his last three tournaments. Rory has historically performed fairly well at Muirfield Village Golf Club, boasting a +1.78 Course History Index across 32 rounds, per Data Golf.
While some of his finishes have been disappointing (by his standards) this year, he still ranks ninth in the field in Strokes Gained: Approach and 15th in Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee since January of this year.
