DORAL, Fla. – Wednesday afternoon, Rory McIlroy dropped a 50-pound weight on his right foot, notifying his legion of fans via a post on Twitter.
Through three rounds at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, the Northern Irishman is three shots off the lead following a Saturday 69 and said his big toe was still sore from the incident.
“I’ll probably lose the toenail. It wasn’t nice,” said McIlroy, who is icing the toe each night and wrapping it with a bandage during play. “I was in the gym last night and was really careful with it.”
