RORY MCILROY IS firmly in contention for a fifth Major win as the US Open enters the back nine at Torrey Pines.

A birdie at the fourth saw McIlroy make the turn in one-under for his round, and four-under for the tournament, one shot behind leaders Bryson DeChambeau and Louis Oosthuizen.

DeChambeau and Oosthuizen top a stacked leaderboard with Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Jon Rahm and Mackenzie Hughes all alongside McIlroy on four-under.

Italy’s Guido Migliozzi is currently the clubhouse leader on two-under par after he finished with a 68 on Sunday.

It was a day to forget for Shane Lowry who had six bogeys and a double at the last to tumble down the leaderboard where he finished on 13-over par in a tie for 65th.
