If you are tuning into this weekend’s PGA Championship, you’ve probably noticed that Rory McIlroy has a strange-looking patch on his arm. McIlroy has been having some pain in his right arm. McIlroy is wearing a StaminaPro patch to help with inflammation and discomfort in his forearm.
“The patches are not designed to treat traumatic injury but are useful for inflammation, fatigue, and the kinds of tension and aches and pains that dedicated athletes tend to suffer from,” reads the StaminaPro website. “[The] StaminaPro patch is charged with more than 200 of nature’s most impactful natural remedies for inflammation, including omega 3s, green tea extract, amino acids, and beetroot.” The effects can last up to 72 hours after application.
McIlroy has been experiencing discomfort in his arm for several days now.
“I started feeling it the weekend of Firestone. Funny enough, it hurts the most with chipping because I sort of hold the angle a little bit. It’s just that in there. The whole forearm has been tight. I hit a lot of balls last week at Firestone working on a few things, and it’s just a little inflamed and a little tight, but it’s fine,” McIlroy told Golf Digest about his injury.
