McIlroy misses cut at US Open

Double bogey at last ends challenge

Rory McIlroy has missed the cut in the US Open at Oakmont after a double-bogey at the last left him eight-over par for his two rounds.

It is the first time that the Irishman and world number three has missed a cut at a major since the 2013 Open to end a run of nine consecutive top-25 finishes in the sport's elite tournaments.

Dustin Johnson is the current leader at four-under after adding a one-under 69 to his first round 67 at the rain-affected tournament.

Things had been looking up for McIlroy as he looked to recover from his opening round 77. Four birdies in his opening nine holes got him back to three-over and well inside the projected cut mark.

But he imploded on the way home as two double-bogeys, including a four-putt from ten feet, and a bogey ended his challenge.

Shane Lowry was the best of the Irish once again at two-under heading into the business end of the tournament.
