Rory McIlroy concedes his hopes of landing a second US Open Championship are over after a disappointing 74 in the third round at Pinehurst.
The Northern Irishman, who won the 2011 US Open and 2012 USPGA, is 11 shots behind leader Martin Kaymer of Germany.
"It was not what I was looking for at the start of the day," admitted the 25-year-old.
