McIlroy risks missing out on Tour invitation


By Adam McKendry

Rory McIlroy slipped out of the top-30 in the FedEx Cup rankings after a level-par first round at the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston last night.

McIlroy is four shots off the leaders after an up-and-down opening day and has slipped down the overall standings as a result, putting him at risk of missing the season-ending Tour Championship.

Only the top 30 players in the standings at the end of next week's event, the Barclays, make it to East Lake, meaning McIlroy needs to push up towards the leaders this weekend to take him back inside the cut mark.

Meanwhile, Royal County Down's Olivia Mehaffey shot a two-under round at Carton House yesterday to keep Ireland in medal contention at the World Amateur Team Championships.
