Rory McIlroy reveals he's been dealing with heart condition

McIlroy revealed he has a "bit of an irregularity with my heart", which is possibly the result of a viral infection 18 months ago.

The closest he went to success in season 2017 was finishing runner-up to fellow Irishman Paul Dunne at the British Masters while earlier in the year he lost a play-off, and revealing his rib injury for a first occasion, at the BMW SA Open and being staged again this week in South Africa.

McIlroy, 28, disclosed the problem during an interview with The (London) Telegraph in Dubai, where he has been preparing for his return to competition after a almost fourth-month break.

As far as the heart issue, McIlroy said he will have to undergo an echocardiogram every six months and an MRI annually.

Four-time major golf champion Rory McIlroy is selling his spacious Florida waterfront home for Sh1.3bn ($12.9mn), according to the PGA Tour.

McIlroy also told Corrigan that his ribs, which he hurt during equipment testing at the end of 2016 and put him on the sideline for months last season, are fine. "Hey, I was planning on doing that anyway", he said.

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 don't care about the world rankings", McIlroy said. McIlroy explained that he is fully recovered from that and excited about teeing it up next week at the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship to kick off his 2018 season.

McIlroy is finishing up a four-month break from competitive golf, the longest of his career.

Rory McIlroy isn't letting a newly disclosed heart condition derail his 2018 goals: winning more majors, and reclaiming the world no. 1 ranking.

"I got injured at the Players and should have said, 'yeah, I'll miss a major, ' because I was only there to get by and you can't win a major by 'getting by'".

"I touched upon a recent finding from a routine health and wellness check". He will make his return at the Abu Dhabi Championship next week.
