Rory McIlroy's bid to keep alive his chances of repeating last year's FedEx Cup victory got off to the worst possible start.

The 28-year-old from Northern Ireland, needing a top-four finish at the BMW Championship in Illinois to make next week's Tour Championship, suffered a double bogey six on his opening hole.

McIlroy, who has been troubled by a rib injury for most of the season, was 51st in the play-off standings and only the top 30 on Sunday go forward to next week's finale in Atlanta.
