2011 US Open Leaderboard Update: Rory McIlroy Starts Strong

Rory McIlory entered the day barely within site of the field on the U.S. Open Leaderboard. His start to the third round suggests that gap might continue to grow through the weekend. McIlory is one under through his first five holes at Congressional on Saturday. If this continues, the results will not be pretty.

Robert Garrigus is another golfer to watch today. The big hitter is two under through his first six holes to move into a tie for second. And Fredrik Jacobson is five under through 15 holes to jump from T26 to T2.

Y.E. Yang, who started the day in the best (plausible?) position to catch McIlroy, is one over so far.

Below is the current leaderboard as of 5:10 P.M. For full coverage of the leaderboard, click here.

1. Rory McIlroy (-12)
T2. Robert Garrigus (-4)
T2. Y.E. Yang (-4)
T2. Fredrik Jacobson (-4)
3. Matt Kuchar (-3)
