Rory McIlroy (23), his US Open title defence a fortnight away, missed the cut in his third straight tournament on Friday, heading for the exit early at the USPGA Tour's Memorial.

The Northern Irishman had regained the World No 1 ranking four weeks ago but has since missed the cut at the US tour’s Players Champion-ship and Europe’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. 

Rory Sabbatini posted a second straight 69 to seize the halfway lead, with 14-time major champion Tiger Woods leading a group just one shot adrift.
