Bryson DeChambeau ‘surprised’ by Rory McIlroy antics as new reaction emerges

Rory McIlroy left Bryson DeChambeau surprised and confused by making a hasty exit from Pinehurst No. 2 without congratulating him on his dramatic US Open victory. The 35-year-old suffered heartbreak in search of his first major trophy in 10 years with an incredible late collapse that gift-wrapped the title for DeChambeau.

McIlroy had a two-shot lead with five holes to play before dropping three shots in four and missing two short-range putts, one from three feet away on the last.

He was then filmed watching DeChambeau confirm victory on the 18th on a TV inside before, with a devastated expression on his face, slumped out of the room.

According to The Telegraph, McIlroy made a bee-line to his courtesy car with his team and started a short journey to Moore County Airport before DeChambeau had even signed his scorecard.

The Northern Irishman is said to have been flying towards Florida in his private jet less than an hour after his opponent made his four-foot pot to clinch his second US Open.

McIlroy was reportedly in the air before DeChambeau started his champion’s press conference.

It’s claimed that the 30-year-old asked officials about his whereabouts in the aftermath and was surprised to learn that he had left immediately without offering congratulations.
