PHOTO: Rory McIlroy Rewriting Record Books At 2011 U.S. Open

I'm no Ansel Adams, but I did feel the need to snap this pic of Rory McIlroy's records SO FAR at the 2011 U.S. Open. McIlroy has set six records through three rounds, and is tied for a seventh. In picture form:

In case that was bit tough to read, Rory's record romp through Congressional:

- Low first 36 holes: 11

- Most strokes under par (36 holes): -11

- Fastest to double-digits under par: 26 holes

- Largest 36-hole lead: 6 (tied record)

- Most strokes under par at any point: -14

- Low first 54 holes: 199

- Most strokes under par (54 holes): -14

Just think, that's seven records broken or tied through three rounds of the Open. Just imagine if McIlroy plays close to that level again on Sunday. Tiger who?
