McIlroy gets ready for PGA Championship

Posted:

Rory McIlroy finally feels like he's back to work after the whirlwind that followed his U.S. Open championship in June.

The 22-year-old McIlroy is among the favorites for the PGA Championship that starts Thursday at the Atlanta Athletic Club. He has played only three times since winning at Congressional in June. There've been photo shoots, talk shows and whispers about his new friendship with women's tennis star Caroline Wozniacki. All of it took time away from golf.

McIlroy said that changed last week with a solid performance at the WGC-Bridgestone Open, where he finished sixth. On Wednesday he said it felt good to be back out there "working hard again."

McIlroy said the PGA Championship is perhaps the major that best suits his game.
