US Open Leaderboard Saturday Results: Rory McIlroy Is In Command

This is all about Rory McIlroy. He's burning up the U.S. Open leaderboard, dropping silly scores, and playing the role of rock star, showered in chants from the gallery.

McIlroy finished three under par for the day Saturday. After three rounds, the 22-year-old is 14 under par -- the lowest anyone has ever been at the U.S. Open -- and has an eight-stroke lead.

McIlroy only birdied four holes on a day that a lot of the field went low. But with the commanding lead that he has, Rory doesn't need birdies. If he avoids mistakes, that will be plenty.

Meanwhile, Lee Westwood and Jason Day played some terrific golf, each shooting up the leaderboard with matching 65's, six under par. The pair are tied for third. Y.E. Yang rebounded from an ugly start to finish at one under par and hold onto second place. It looks like these gentlemen will duke it out for second place, unless Rory unravels. After these first three days, it's hard to conceive that happening -- even given his meltdown at the Masters.
