- World number one Rory McIlroy has doused any fears of burn-out ahead of the Ryder Cup, declaring to European captain Paul McGinley "put me in every Gleneagles match".

McIlroy will tee up on Friday in the opening round of the $8 million PGA Tour's Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston, the second of the four FedEx Cup play-off events.

It is McIlroy's sixth event in seven weeks, but McIlroy played down any concerns about tireness.

"I am trying to conserve all the energy I can because not only do I want to win the FedEx Cup but I know the Ryder Cup is going to be a huge week," he said.
