2011 U.S Open Leaderboard Update: Rory McIlroy Wins First Major In Historic Fashion

If it seems like fans and media alike have been talking about Rory McIlroy non-stop for the last four days, well, that's because they have been, and with good reason. The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland just finished eviscerating the 2011 U.S. Open field and Congressional Country Club over the past 96 hours. The wire-to-wire winner shot 65-66-68-69 as he set or tied 12 Open records. His first three putt, and only three putt, occurred on his 71st hole. It now seems silly to even mention his epic Masters collapse, as the youngster showed absolutely no signs of faltering in dominating the 111th edition of the United States Open.

Kevin Chappell and Robert Garrigus were the top Americans on the board, finishing tied for third at six-under for the tournament. McIlroy's weekend partner Y.E. Yang also finished tied for third after shooting a final round 71. Aussie Jason Day shot a 68 on Sunday to sneak into second place for the second straight major. Lee Westwood will be shipping Day his majors bridesmaids dress.

The top eight players are automatically invited to the 2012 Masters, and the top ten players are automatically invited to the 2012 U.S. Open, to be held at the Olympic Club in Daly City, California.
