McIlroy to undergo test on troublesome back

McIlroy previously told reporters he was having an MRI to determine the cause of the back pain he suffered at last week's Players Championship.

The 28-year-old was ruled out for nearly two months at the start of the year after suffering a stress fracture to his ribs, and there were fears he was facing another spell out.

- Rory McIlroy says tests indicate no new injury to his back, only what he described as a "low-grade response" to his rib injury in January.

The 28-year-old four-time major victor is suffering from a back injury, but made a strong start to the day at Sawgrass.

"I had the injury, then I played three our of four events leading up to Augusta and then I took a little bit of time off". The back has been the most common area of injury for players, from Tiger Woods' re-aggravated back injury to Dustin Johnson's fall at the Masters. "If that injury was an 8 or a 9 in terms of pain and soreness and stiffness, this is around a 4 or 5", he said.

According to Murray, McIlroy's status for next week's European Tour BMW Championship is up in the air. "I felt a bit of stiffness on Sunday, hit a couple of drives that didn't quite feel right".
