There were concerns when Rory McIlroy had just three tournaments following an injury layoff to prepare for the Masters. Now it appears he'll have had just one going into the U.S. Open. McIlroy said Friday he would not be playing next week's Memorial Tournament due to a lingering rib injury that kept him out of action earlier this year and also caused him to skip the European Tour's BMW PGA Championship this week. McIlroy's lone tournament since the Masters was the Players Championship, where he disclosed the injury was bothering him again.

Speaking publicly for the first time since a fourth back surgery last month, Tiger Woods posted a status update to his personal website Wednesday afternoon -- and he sounded optimistic about his long-term future. "It is hard to express how much better I feel," he said. "It was instant nerve relief. I haven't felt this good in years." As to whether he believes he can return to competitive golf, Woods didn't mince words: "Unequivocally, I want to play professional golf again."

The decision on whether to move the PGA Championship to May -- thus necessitating a move to March for the Players Championship and allowing the PGA Tour season to end earlier -- also impacts the European Tour. CEO Keith Pelley said Wednesday at the BMW PGA Championship many decisions for his tour await the PGA Championship decision -- which is not far off. "The PGA of America says they're going to determine whether the PGA Championship is moved to May by the end of August this year,'' he said. "If that's the case, we are going to have to look at everything.''

Most impressive PGA Tour win this year?

No, it wasn't Si Woo Kim's victory at the Players Championship, but it was one of Dustin Johnson's three titles so far in 2017.

Three days after being criticized by Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee for playing too "safe" down the stretch during his T-2 finish at The Players Championship, Ian Poulter held an interview session with the assembled media prior to the AT&T Byron Nelson. When I asked him whether he was surprised at the reaction to his course strategy, he smiled and answered, "Not talking about it. Not interested, not interested. I have no interest feeding the fire." He then added: "I play to win, end of story." Those words might read as contentious, but it was a playful exchange, as Poulter appeared relaxed after a last-minute technical error afforded him a PGA Tour card for this year, then last week's finish assured he'll be set for next year, as well. In Thursday's opening round at TPC Four Seasons, he started with three consecutive birdies to grab an early share of the lead, but only finished at even-par 70.
