Rory ready to rumble

Rory McIlroy insisted that he has enough fuel in the tank and told European Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley “put me in every Gleneagles match”.

The world number one will compete in the $8-million PGA Tour’s Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston – the second of the four FedEx Cup playoff events.

It will mark his sixth event in seven weeks and will only have one week’s break before the Ryder Cup.

McIlroy has also been active on the social from where he made an effort to watch Scotsman Andy Murray compete in the US Open while lunch with former US president Bill Clinton was also on his schedule.

“You just have to be smart and you have to be sensible,” he told AFP.

“I enjoyed my time in the week after winning the PGA Championship and besides I didn’t have that many late nights where I let it get the better of me.”

“I am trying to conserve all the energy I can because not only do I want to win the FedEx Cup but I know with the Ryder Cup it’s going to be a huge week and a long week where you want to be fresh.

“And besides I didn’t sit out a match at Medinah so my message is ‘McGinley stick me down for every match.'”

McIlroy will play the opening two rounds in Boston with Americans Jimmy Walker and Hunter Mahan.
