McIlroy to switch off at US Open

GOLF: Former US Open champion Rory McIlroy plans to leave his phone at home when he tees off at the tournament today. McIlroy, who plays alongside fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell, has been in the headlines following a recent split from tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, and said: “Sometimes you become dependent on all this new technology. It’s nice to go back a bit.”
