U.S. Open 2011: Rory McIlroy Off To Incredibly Hot Start, Holds Six Stroke Lead

If you thought that Rory McIlroy was hot during his 6-under 65 in the first round of the 2011 U.S. Open, then his performance so far in round two is almost unheard of. McIlroy is now four under par on the front nine, and sits at a ridiculous 10-under par. His shot of the day so far (though I doubt it will be usurped) was a hole out from the fairway for an eagle two on the eighth hole. People were very worried about how McIlroy would respond after the Masters letdown this Spring, but he appears to being doing alright for himself. Here's a quick look at the leaderboard as it stands now.

1. Rory McIlroy: -10 through 9

2. Zach Johnson: -4 through 8

T3. Robert Garrigus: -3 through 10

T3. Y.E. Yang: -3 tees off at 1:35

T5. Sergio Garcia: -2 through 8

T5. Charl Schwartzel: -2 through 8

T5. Ryan Palmer: -2 tees off at 2:19

T5. Louis Oosthuizen: -2 tees off at 1:35
