Paul Azinger suggests Rory McIlroy’s intense fitness regime may be the reason for his recent injuries.
The four-time major champion has been struggling with a rib injury since the off-season, forcing him to miss a glut of events in 2017.
“Pudgy Rory never got hurt,” said the major winner and current golf analyst. “But fit Rory’s getting hurt a lot. I question fitness. If you think fitness makes you better it probably makes you better. But I guess there’s a point of diminishing return, if you’re not careful.”
