Rory McIlroy says tests show no new injury to his back

"But there are so many unknowns and unless you get an image taken of it you just don't know".

"I didn't really do that today". I'm going for an MRI scan on Monday just to make sure it's not serious and then I'll see what we do from there.

"So it might just be a flare-up of what happened previously and I just need to rest for a few days and it might be OK. So if I can shoot something in the mid-60s, back door a top-10 like I seem to do quite often, and move on".

The four-time major victor said he realizes he's somewhat limited this week and will have to work his way into contention with what he has before a little more time off prior to his U.S. Open lead-in and prep. He said in a statement Monday that he is entered in the BMW PGA Championship next week at Wentworth and will decide early next week if he can play. "I felt it for the first time on Sunday". Hopefully that's what it shows in the scan.
