Golfer Rory McIlroy suffering from heart ailment

Rory McIlroy says he has a heart ailment that will have to be monitored regularly but is not expected to affect his play.

McIlroy said in an interview with London’s Daily Telegraph that he has a thickening of the left ventricle. He says doctors told him it was caused by a viral infection he had in China 18 months ago.

He says he’ll get an electrocardiogram every six months and an MRI exam once per year.

“There’s a bit of scar tissue. For now, I just need to stay on top of it and have to stay fit. Hey, I was planning on doing that anyway,” McIlroy said.

McIlroy says he’s fully recovered from the rib injury he suffered a year ago that contributed to a winless 2017.
