2011 U.S Open Leaderboard Update: Rory McIlroy Begins Final Round Back Nine With Eight Shot Lead

As he has done all four rounds of this 2011 United States Open, Rory McIlroy continued his mastery of Congressional on his Sunday front nine, and now stands just nine holes from his first major championship, at the ripe old age of twenty-two. McIlroy was two-under on the front, with two birdies and seven pars, carding a 34. His playing partner, Y.E. Yang, also shot two-under on the front nine, an impressive feat considering the infant onesie he is sporting on the course.

Masters champion Charl Schwartzel has stormed up the leaderboard, courtesy of a five-under round through 17 Sunday holes. Louis Oosthuizen is also five-under for the day, and stands at five-under for the tournament.
