Rory McIlroy says he is confident that he will rectify some technical issues with his swing as he prepares for this week's US PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.
"Today we only got in five holes and didn't really get a chance to see a whole lot, so I'll have to do some more homework tomorrow and get a good feel for what's going on for the rest of the week". "Yesterday I spent a few times in the ice bath just trying to get some inflammation down and just trying to get ready for the rest of the week".

I've never had a spinal restriction before, and I played all those years without it.

Woods was among the players due to compete at Bellerive Country Club in 2001 when the WGC-American Express Championship was cancelled due to the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
He followed that with three rounds in the 70s at the Bridgestone Invitational last week, leaving him a full 20 shots off the pace - and outside the top 20 for the eighth consecutive event. "But having a fixed point in my spine is very different".
