Rory McIlroy out of BMW PGA

Rory McIlroy has decided to skip the BMW PGA at Wentworth in May, the European Tour's flagship event. 

The world number three, who won the tournament two years ago, has decided to miss the event as he does not want to play four weeks in a row. 

"I am still working on it but I feel better than I did when I put the clubs away for a couple of weeks," the Northern Irishman said.

"I'd got into a couple of bad habits leading up to the Masters and it's never really a good time to work on them - you are just trying to play golf and shoot a score," he told the Golf Channel. 

"I took basically a full two weeks off from golf. I went home to Ireland for a week and then had a bit of a break; I was island-hopping for about 10 days, which was nice."

After this week's Wells Fargo Championship, the 27-year-old will compete in the Players Championship, followed by the Irish Open, which he hosts. McIlroy will then play Memorial the week following the BMW PGA.
