FedEx Cup Play-offs: Rory McIlroy misses cut at St Jude Championship

World number three Rory McIlroy missed the cut for the first time since March at the FedEx St Jude Championship.

The Northern Irishman shot a one-under-par 69 to take him to one under after two rounds, missing out by one stroke.

It was McIlroys first tournament since his final-day disappointment at The Open Championship last month.

JJ Spaun carded a 67 to lead on 10 under in Memphis, with fellow American Troy Merritt and Austrian Sepp Straka one shot back.

World number one Scottish Scheffler also missed the cut on one under, as did Scotlands Russell Knox on level par and Justin Rose, who went round in 75 to slip to six over.

The St Jude Championship at TPC Southwind is the first of three tournaments to decide the Tour champion, with the winner picking up $18m (£14.8m).
