Rory McIlroy has missed the cut at this year's US Open at Oakmont.

The World No 3 misses the first cut in a major tournament for the first time since 2013 with that last occurring at The Open.

A double-bogey on the final hole cost the Northern Irish golfer who carded a round of 71 to finish on 8-over.

It followed a 7-over par score of 77 in his opening round.

Dustin Johnson leads the way on 4-under, while Shane Lowry is just two shots further back as the best of the Irish.

Lowry is in a four-way a tie for third, with Andrew Landry second on the leaderboard on 3-under.

Graeme McDowell is further back on 3-over.
