Rory McIlroy says he will be fit to defend his US PGA Championship title at Whistling Straits.

The world number one suffered ankle ligament damage while playing football with friends in July and was unable to defend his The Open crown as a result.

The Northern Irishman had been considered a major doubt ahead of the final major of the year, which begins on Thursday, but McIlroy has now told the Golf Channel that his ankle is a "non-issue".

The 26-year-old, who has been grouped with the Masters and US Open champion Jordan Spieth and The Open winner Zach Johnson for the first two rounds of the championship, does not have to confirm his involvement until his official tee time for the opening round but it appears as if he will mount a defence.

McIlroy managed 18 holes of practice for a second day in a row at the venue in Wisconsin and he feels he is ready to get back on the course competitively.

He told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "Obviously, getting around a golf course like this, playing 18 holes, it felt fine. I've come a long way in five weeks. This has been the five-week mark today from when I did it."
