Rory McIlroy played a round with US president Donald Trump on Sunday as he continues his recovery from a rib injury.

The world number three has not played competitively since suffering a stress fracture to one of his ribs during the South African Open in January, where he lost a play-off to Graeme Storm.

The website 'No Laying Up' reported that McIlroy rode in a golf cart for all 18 holes with Trump and quoted the four-time major winner's opinion on the President's game.

"He probably shot around 80. He's a decent player for a guy in his 70s," McIlroy said.
