Rory McIlroy has delivered a major blow to the European Tour, revealing he will be giving up his membership for the 2019 season to focus on the US-based PGA Tour.

McIlroy only intends to play two full-field European Tour events in the first half of 2019 and has made the decision as it is not a Ryder Cup year – he insisted he would not have done the same thing if it was.
