How well is Rory McIlroy playing t at the 2011 U.S. Open? He isn't just beating the entire field at COngressional, he's beating everyone who has ever played in a U.S. Open, ever. Heading into this week no player had ever been at more than 12-under par at any point in the tournament in the entire history of the event. With a birdie putt on 17, Rory McIlroy moved to 13-under.â†µ
If you've been watching today, McIlroy has put on an absolute clinic. He has just been incredibly consistent. Hitting almost every fairway, getting on almost every green, and making the putts he needs to make. And in some instances, making the putts that are jsut a bonus. This is exactly how everyone wishes that they could play golf. At this point, he is just rocking the rest of the field to sleep.He holds a ten stroke lead, and still has the 18th hole to play. We'll see if he can extend that lead even further, and shoot a remarkable 63 after a first round 65.
