From early in his career, Rory struggled with physical neck issues and symptoms for over ten years before realizing that the underlying cause of his discomfort was due to cervical disc degeneration.
In May 2016, Rory underwent surgery with the prodisc C Total Disc Replacement. Now, Rory is 100% pain free and is back to playing professional golf without any limitations. Between 2017 and 2018, Rory competed in 50 PGA Tour events, 2 of which he finished in the top 10 and 13 where he finished in the top 25. In 2019, Rory finished his PGA season with a FedEx Cup rank of 36—making the ‘cut’ in more events than in any year of his career.
According to Rory, “prodisc completely changed my life. I’m always physically exerting myself and I’ve never had any issues with my neck since the surgery!”
