McIlroy hits back after accused of being 'bored' by Elkington

The Erin Hills course is nothing like the masterpiece the USGA hold it up to

McIlroy, who has four major titles, wrote: "More like $200-million". Jack won 18 and never mentioned his total cash.

"New you were a money guy".

Trying to shame McIlroy by name-dropping golf's greatest player proved ineffective, as the younger man went for the jugular with a jibe about Elkington's advancing years: "That's why jack designed 100's of golf courses... and it's knew... mustn't have taught grammar in the 50's..."

McIlroy birdied four of his last six holes in Wisconsin, but still missed the cut by four shots.

"But it's good to identify them and see what needs to be worked on". "I'm looking forward to playing some golf over the summer to get some rounds in and improve on what I've shown this week". I sort of have to let it come to me a little bit.


For the first time since the world rankings were introduced in 1986, the top three all missed the cut - with Dustin Johnson and Jason Day sharing McIlroy's fate.

To be fair to McIlroy, he's returning from injury and hasn't played as much golf as he would have liked to this year.

Their departure raised the prospect of this US Open producing a seventh consecutive first-time victor at the Majors.

ERIN, Wis. - Rory McIlroy fired back at fellow major champion Steve Elkington on Twitter on Friday night after the Australian golfer said the Northern Irishman "was bored playing golf" due to having plenty of money in the bank.
