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.

However, Toyota says it does give us a taste of what the company aims to achieve with its next-generation sports cars. Team principal Tommi Mäkinen said the team is ready to build on its pleasing first season.

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.

A 3-pointer by Wall and a 3-pointer by Kelly Oubre Jr. capped an 8-0 run and the Wizards led 99-98 with 2:31 left in the game. F Devin Robinson, Washington's lone two-way contract player, joined the Wizards for the first time this season.

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".
