Rory McIlroy postpones his visit to poverty-stricken Haiti in order to prepare for the Masters.

Former world number one Rory McIlroy has put back his original visit to Haiti to meet some of the families affected by the 2010 earthquake.

The 23-year-old was scheduled to travel to the Caribbean country with UNICEF, but has cancelled his visit in order to prepare for the Masters.

"Unfortunately, I have had to postpone my planned trip to Haiti, with UNICEF, due to a change in my playing commitments," McIlroy said in a statement.

"I am a strong supporter of UNICEF's work and I was privileged to be given the opportunity to visit Haiti, with UNICEF, nearly two years ago.

"We are currently looking at dates to re-schedule my trip and I look forward to visiting Haiti very soon."

The Northern Irishman planned to visit schools in the region.
