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

Rory McIlroy had a awful first and second round at the U.S. Open at Erin Hills.

The Aussie pro golfer didn't tag McIlroy in the tweet, but said the 2011 U.S. Open champ must be bored playing golf without Tiger Woods in the field and lacked motivation.

"Without Tiger the threshold is prolly 4 majors with 100mill in bank".

America's Cup: New Zealand take 1-0 lead over USA
In the second contest, the victor would earn a one point advantage heading into the America's Cup Match. He said there is a lot of racing ahead and many opportunities to take an advantage.

He also listed his achievements in the game, adding his money list and player of the year awards on both sides of the Atlantic to his two USPGA crowns and triumphs in The Open and US Open.

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

McIlroy gleefully corrected Elk's spelling, pointing out he should have written "knew" - and asked whether they "taught grammar in the 50s".

'Rocky' and 'The Karate Kid' director John Avildsen dead at 81
In The Karate Kid (1984), The Karate Kid Part II and The Karate Kid Part III , Avildsen directed Ralph Macchio and Pat Morita. Avildsen's other films included the critically hailed drama-thriller " Joe " (1970), starring Susan Sarandon and Peter Boyle.

A rib injury restricted McIlroy to just six tournaments before the US Open, but he plans to play in next week's Travelers Championship and the Irish Open, Scottish Open and Open Championship in successive weeks in July.

"I missed the cut, but I'm optimistic going forward".

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.
