McIlroy eats something he shouldn't have

Powered by National Club Golfer


Upside: you get to miss the Tuesday photoshoot where you have to dress up and perform something embarrassing with your fellow players.

Downside: you are in your hotel room throwing your guts up after eating something that wasn’t quite right.

Rory’s McIlroy’s preparations for the WGC-HSBC Champions in China got off to the wrong start when he woke in the middle of the night to be sick and then spent the rest of Tuesday doing much the same.

He then withdrew from the pro-am after a couple of swings on the range hurt too much but, after being given antibiotics and something for the abdominal pain, he was good to go on Thursday.

He eventually tied for 11th after closing with a 66.
