Rory McIlroy will have an MRI scan on a back injury next week after confirming the problem still troubled him during the second round of the Players Championship.

Perez made the halfway cut on the mark of two over par but fired a 66 on Saturday, his lowest score in 43 rounds at Sawgrass, to climb more than 50 places up the leaderboard.

The initial injury was a good bit more painful, but the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship, is in just two weeks. I've just sort of been managing it since.

Rory McIlroy is the latest star golfer to suffer a back injury but his injury does not seem to be as serious as others.

On the first hole, his tenth, McIlroy grimaced after his drive off the tee and admitted that although his current situation is "manageable", he will be getting a scan when he lands home in Belfast on Monday to discover the injury's extent.

"That's going to put a smile on me the rest of the day for sure", he said. "Hopefully that's what it shows in the scan next week", he added.

"I haven't won a Major and I haven't won the Masters before, so I didn't know exactly what to expect and what to feel".

"I took another three weeks off and then I went back at it on Friday". With 71-73-74 in his first three rounds, he got his Mother's Day started with a 50-foot putt for eagle on the par-5 second. "Maybe I should have just taken it a bit easier over the weekend, but I was excited to get back, excited to play again".

The Northern Irishman is even-par for his first two rounds at TPC Sawgrass and now sits nine shots off the pace set by Louis Oosthuizen and Kyle Stanley.
