Chris Stroud enters today's final round of the PGA Championship one stroke behind leader Kevin Kisner after shooting an even round 71 on Saturday at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte.
Along with failing to win a major for the third straight year, McIlroy hasn't won anywhere around the world since he won the Tour Championship last September to capture the FedEx Cup and its $10 million prize.
Winless this year and having battled back and rib injuries, McIlroy suggested his 2017 could be over, but the Northern Irishman is unsure what his immediate future holds. "I don't necessarily know that's the officials' fault".
"I can't believe Col Swatton (his caddie) did not give him a wedge and start walking, say that's the only choice mate". "I felt like we took as much time as we needed to at the start of the year, that was basically seven or eight weeks".

We'll know more in a few weeks, and you know McIlroy wants to defend his FedEx Cup win, but like he noted, we might have already seen his last shot of the season.
"I probably didn't quite hit it as well off the tee as I did yesterday and wasn't putting myself in positions where I could go at a lot of pins. The next big thing is April, and that's really what my focus will be on from now until then".
Jason Day reeled off three straight birdies and took a remarkable gamble that didn't pay off.
Asked if he saw a "low one" out there, he said: "Yeah, but I guess a low round used to be a 61 or a 62".
That aside, McIlroy's strong finale may leave him wondering what might have been had he played as consistently well in the first three rounds. "If I want to challenge on a more consistent basis, but I need to get 100 percent healthy".
He said the pain he's feeling now is "not as bad" as it was in May, when he said it "really sort of flared up on me" at the Players Championship. "If it was injury-free, that wouldn't happen". It's just these last two days I haven't scored very well.
