Rory McIlroy a doubt for World Golf Championship thanks to dodgy sandwich

Kevin Beirne

Rory McIlroy’s attempts to win the Race to Dubai title could be derailed by a sandwich.

The Northern Irishman currently leads the pack going into the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in China but may be forced to pull out after missing the tournament’s launch.

McIlroy put his absence down to stomach pains thanks to a dodgy club sandwich, after apparently turning down the option of a baked eel.

We’re not sure we would have tried the eel either, but it seems a little cliched for a golfer to blame his poor performance on a club.
