Rory McIlroy Reflects on US Open Heartbreak: “Toughest Day” in His Career

Rory McIlroy Reflects on US Open Heartbreak: “Toughest Day” in His Career Rory McIlroy has opened up about his recent US Open disappointment, describing Sunday as “probably the toughest” day he’s ever had on a golf course.

Thirteen years after his first US Open win and nearly a decade since his last major victory, McIlroy appeared poised for triumph, leading by two shots with five holes to play. However, missed putts on the 16th and 18th holes led to a heartbreaking defeat.

McIlroy praised champion Bryson DeChambeau and acknowledged the challenge of processing the loss. Despite the setback, he expressed optimism about his future in golf, emphasizing his resilience and determination to win another major. McIlroy plans to take a short break before returning to defend his title at the Genesis Scottish Open and compete in The Open at Royal Troon.

In a statement on X, McIlroy said: “As I reflect on my week, I’ll rue a few things… mostly the 2 missed putts on 16 and 18. But… I feel closer to winning my next major championship than I ever have.” He concluded with, “See you in Scotland.”
