McIlroy hits back at Elkington

McIlroy hits back at Elkington

So yeah, McIlroy has made more than Elkington stated and has a lot more achievements than Elkington has made over his career and he's still only 28 years old. He also corrected Elkington's math.

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

The spat continued with Elkington insisting he "new" McIlroy was interested only in money, unlike 18-time Major champion Jack Nicklaus.

"That's why jack designed 100's of golf courses...and it's knew...mustn't have taught grammar in the 50's", McIlroy replied.

The plan now is for McIlroy to play three tournaments in four weeks to keep himself sharp going into the Open Championship next month.

And he was also encouraged by the fact he managed to finish with a flourish.

New Zealand are now without a win in 10 Confederations Cup matches and struggled to make an attacking impression. Smolov had an effort ruled out for offside before the opening goal arrived just after the half-hour mark.

McIlroy birdied four of his last six holes at Erin Hills to improve seven shots on his opening 78, but still missed the cut by four shots.

He said: "Some of the weaknesses and flaws that are in my game at the minute showed up here".

"Even though it's very disappointing to not be here on the weekend, I think these last two rounds will serve me well going into the summer". I know I'm doing the right thing. Hes so bored playing golf on tour.

He was not the only top player to leave Wisconsin in a hurry.

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

That appeared to prompt 1995 US PGA champion Steve Elkington to write on Twitter that "Rory is so bored playiing golf...without Tiger [Woods] the threshold is prolly 4 majors with 100mill in bank".
