For the third consecutive day, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy has dropped another big hint that he's going to give it a go next week in the 97th PGA Championship at Whistling Straits.
Two days after posting a video to Instagram of his workout and one day after posting a photo and a video to Instagram of his healing ankle and swing with a driver, respectively, McIlroy posted this on Friday morning:
It's not just a great-looking private jet. It's also a message with emojis left for us to decipher.
We're not rocket scientists in these parts, but upon examination it sure looks like McIlroy is telling us he has boarded a flight in Portugal headed to the U.S., he's happy about it (the thumbs up), we can't make out the next two emojis, but that last one of a golf flag has us pretty excited.
As I wrote in this space yesterday -- I can't wait until Rory is back on the course, but I just hope he isn't coming back too soon. For golfers of his caliber, missing a major championship must be like a child having to miss Christmas morning.
If there are any more hints forthcoming, we'll keep you posted.
