Whether he defends his PGA Championship next week at Whistling Straits or not, this is a great sign for the physical health of world No. 1 Rory McIlroy:
McIlroy posted the video to his Instagram account on Wednesday morning. While his status for next week is still up in the air, it is nice to see the 26-year-old, four-time major winner working out without any support on that left ankle where he suffered "a total rupture of an ankle ligament" while playing soccer in early July.
Due to the injury, McIlroy has not played since a T9 at the U.S. Open. He has won twice on the PGA Tour this season -- at the WGC-Cadillac Match Play and the Wells Fargo Championship.
