Steve Elkington picked a fight with Rory McIlroy on Twitter and lost

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. McIlroy, while correcting Elkington's spelling, pointed out that Nicklaus didn't earn much money as a player, hence his golf course design business.

But that was met with a swift response from McIlroy who wrote "More like 200mil... not bad for a "bored" 28 year old... plenty more where that came from" and posted a screenshot of his Wikipedia entry which lists some of his achievements in the game.

Elkington added that without Tiger, the "threshold is prolly 4 majors with 100 mill in the bank".

McIlroy, who has four major titles, wrote: "More like $200-million".

"The more rounds I can play, I'm hopefully going to get rid of all that stuff and hopefully strip it down to what you saw the last six holes".

Police confirmed the shooter was in custody. "I am sickened by this despicable act", Sanders said on the Senate floor. Police say Hodgkinson was carrying an assault weapon similar to an M-4 rifle and a handgun in the attack.

"I missed the cut, but I'm optimistic going forward". Hes so bored playing golf on tour.

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.

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.

So when Steve Elkington, a 54-year-old one-time major victor (1995 PGA Championship) out of Australia who never finished better than T21 at the U.S. Open, made a decision to call out McIlroy on Twitter, he was quick to respond.
