US Open champion may rejoin PGA tour

The US Open golf champion Rory McIlroy says he's considering rejoining the PGA Tour, just nine months after opting not to take up his card for the 2011 season on the US circuit.

Homesickness had been the main reason for his decision to focus on the European Tour at the end of last year, but he says most of his favourite events seem to be on the US side of the pond.

The world number five says he feels very comfortable in America, and he's going to be looking at some properties in Florida.
