Northern Irishman Rory Mc Ilroy has hit back at a suggestion that he is"bored with golf

WORLD NUMBER TWO Rory McIlroy has hit back at his critics following his failure to make the cut at the US Open for a second successive year.

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..."

Though McIlroy's response to Elkington probably made him feel a bit better.

It's a break from past practice that Mattis said will enable him to more effectively manage the war effort. The decision is similar to one announced in April that applied to US troop levels in Iraq and Syria .

"More like 200mil...not bad for a "bored" 28 year old...plenty more where that came from", McIlroy wrote.

Elkington then replied that he knew McIlroy was a "money guy" and that Jack Nicklaus won 18 major titles and never spoke about money.

World No. 2 McIlroy missed the cut at the U.S. Open on Friday.

"I missed the cut, but I'm optimistic going forward". McIlroy was far from the only star to suffer at the U.S. Open, as Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Jon Rahm also failed to reach Saturday play.

For the first time since 1974, four players head into the weekend tied atop the leaderboard, with Americans Brooks Koepka and Brian Harman and English duo Paul Casey and Tommy Fleetwood locked at seven-under 137.

You had to go down to newly-crowned Masters champion Sergio Garcia and double Major victor Martin Kaymer - both in a share of 19th place on three under - to find the first players who already know what it is like to lift one of the game's biggest trophies.
