Rory McIlroy has a heart irregularity


But a heart irregularity he revealed publicly for the first time this week might be the most troubling of the bunch.

"I've got a bit of an irregularity with my heart that I have to keep on top of", McIlroy told the Telegraph.

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

U.S. looking at free trade agreement with India
China wants that in case the NPT clause is waived off for India then Pakistan should also be allowed to be a member of the NSG. Juster was at pains to clarify that "America First" and " Make in India " were "not incompatible".

The Irish golfer traced the condition back to a bad viral infection he had 18 months ago in China, leading to some scar tissue and the thickening of his left ventricle. "Hey, I was planning on doing that anyway".

That doesn't sound great, obviously, but it also doesn't sound like it will affect his swing like the rib injury did past year. He will make his 2018 debut next week in Abu Dhabi and plans to play eight events before the Masters, his most ambitious schedule ahead of Augusta National in the 10 years he's been eligible.

The current World No 11 arrived back to the UAE last weekend and while his nagging 2017-long rib injury has fully healed he has somewhat shocked the golf world with revelations the 28-year old has a heart concern. He insisted that he's recharged and ready to rock in 2018.

Boss still in dark over January budget
My belief is that we will do what we have to do. "We still have some weeks to go, and have to keep working to try to do our best". For me, it is obvious. "It is not a team at the bottom that will come here and say, "We are relegated" and that is it".

It is what will be driving the four-time Major victor when he kick starts his 11th season in the pay-for-pay ranks.

"I shouldn't have played the U.S. Open, " said McIlroy, who missed the cut. "I knew within myself that I couldn't compete at the end of last season because I hadn't done the work beforehand, and that's because I hadn't been fit enough and if you can't practice, you can't compete".

"I still feel that on my day, if I'm on my roll, and especially if I'm playing with them... I just crave to be in that position again".

New York City just declared war on the oil industry
Filing a lawsuit against oil and gas companies is the solution and the answer to counter the existential threat of fracking. The motion would also request that the city file an amicus brief in support of the NY and California lawsuits.

The purchaser could get a golf prize from McIlroy, however, as the soda vending machine he was given after winning the 2016 Tour Championship is featured in one of the rooms.
