Rory McIlroy Makes U.S. Open History
Rory McIlroy became the first player in U.S. Open history to reach 13-under par. McIlroy also became the fastest player in championship history to reach double digits under par when he holed his approach for eagle at the eighth.
The Irishman finished the day with a 65 and he leads the U.S. Open with 11-under-par after two days of play. McIlroy double-bogeyed the final hole today, bringing back thoughts of the Masters a couple months ago where he had a four stroke lead only to blow it.
Sloppy finish or not, McIlroy is playing some damn good golf. With his first two rounds today and his performance pre-Sunday at the Masters, he is proving that he is a force to be reckoned with. For the first time since the Tiger Woods ordeal - golf has some excitement. Let's see how the final two rounds go for the 22-year-old, but it will take a massive meltdown to blow this lead.
