Rory McIlroy has posted some pictures of his ankle on Instagram showing the extent of the injury he sustained last month.

The 25-year old damaged his left ankle while playing football with some friends and the injury ruled him out of the British Open, where he was to defend his title.

McIlroy hasn't played since but as he says in the post, he has come a long way since his ankle was horrifically swollen.

 

4 and a half and 3 and a half weeks ago respectively... I've come a long way since.

There are conflicting reports about whether the Holywood man will be fit to play at Whistling Straights, to defend his USPGA title, but he posted video of his rehab work yesterday, so he is well on the way to recovery.

Question is will it be quick enough?
