CROMWELL, June 17 — Rory McIlroy, fresh off a devastating US Open loss, was listed in the initial field released today for this week’s PGA Tour event in Cromwell, Connecticut.

The Northern Irishman was in position to end a decade-long hunt for his fifth major yesterday but threw it away with three bogeys in his final four holes, including two where he missed putts inside of four feet, and lost to Bryson DeChambeau by one stroke.

The moment DeChambeau’s winning putt dropped in the cup, a shell-shocked McIlroy stormed directly to his courtesy car and left the site of the most agonising loss of his career and fourth runner-up finish in a major.

He is scheduled to hold a pre-tournament news conference on Wednesday following his pro-am at the Travellers Championship at TPC River Highlands.

The Travellers Championship is the eighth and final signature event of the PGA Tour season and does not have a cut, meaning the full 72-player field will compete all four rounds. — Reuters
