PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! "Rory McIlroy came up just short in his bid to end his eight-year Major drought as he couldn’t stage a final round comeback at the US Open at The Country Club at Brookline. The Holywood man made what is becoming a traditional late surge on Sunday as back-to-back birdies at the par-five 14th and par-four 15th moved him within three shots of the lead.But it was too little, too late as three pars to finish led to a one-under 69, which saw him reach the clubhouse at two-under-par, one shot behind Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama.The Masters champion is unlikely to be the winner either as, at the time of writing, Matt Fitzpatrick held a one-shot lead over Will Zalatoris and World No.1 Scottie Scheffler at six-under-par with two holes to play.

.He picked up a shot on the opening hole with a fine putt down the slope, but a wild run of five holes starting at the third saw him bogey three and birdie two to drop back to where he started the day at one-under at the turn.Another bogey came at the 108-yard par-three 11th when he missed the green and failed to make up-and-down, but he sparked hopes of a remarkable comeback with those back-to-back birdies at 14 and 15.But despite having good birdies chance at the 17th and 18th, both stayed above ground to end his hopes, although two-under-par was still good enough to secure a top-five place at Brookline for his third consecutive top-10 Major finish and fourth in his last five starts."
