McIlroy, 28, who was winless during an injury-plagued season last year, said he will have to undergo an echo cardiogram every six months and then an MRI scan every year.

The Irish golfer traced the condition back to a bad viral infection he had 18 months ago in China, leading to some scar tissue and the thickening of his left ventricle. The Northern Irishman will begin his 2018 season at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, starting January 15, where he is a four-time runner-up. "I'm fit and healthy and can't wait to get my 2018 season started in Abu Dhabi next week".

McIlroy has not competed since finishing well down the field in last October's Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland and purposely has remained side-lined from formal competition to allow his injury rib to fully heal.

"The rib's fine, no problems whatsoever - I had an MRI scan on my thoracic spine and all was okay", said McIlroy to the Telegraph.

McIlroy fell from No. 2 in the Official World Golf Rankings at the beginning of 2017 to No. 11 at the start of 2018 after not winning a year ago. "Hey, I was planning on doing that anyway".

Four-time major victor McIlroy returns to the golf course next week in the Abu Dhabi Championship after a four-month break as he recovered from a rib injury. "I just crave to be in that position again". I know exactly what I can do.
