    McIlroy destroying the field (US Open)

    Golf is not an arena sport so that makes it off topic everywhere.

    Rory McIlroy, yes, he of the final round collapse at the Masters is doing it again. He is currently at -11 (through 15) leading the field by eight strokes and with a makable eagle putt on 16. Not since Tiger destroyed a Masters filed on year have we seen anything like this kind of performence.

    Good for him. He manned up big time after his Masters meltdown earlier in the year.

    <edited to add>

    He missed the eagle but made the birdie. -12 through 16.

    -13 through 17 holes. Ten full shots ahead of the field.

    "McIlroy strokes his putt into the middle of the 17th hole for his seventh birdie of the round. The Northern Irishman is the first golfer to reach -13 during the US Open. When Tiger Woods won by 15 shots at Pebble Beach in 2000, his finishing score was -12. "

    Ah well. A double at 18 brings him back down to earth with a final of -11.

    Scratch this thread I guess.

    Only Friday.


    Plenty of time to suck down a few Guiness and choke away the lead.

    Is anyone close to him? One of the tweets I read this morning stated that the course was in perfect playing condition so I would assume other scores would be decent as well....

    The closest player is Y.E. Yang at -3 and he has not teed off yet for his second round. A couple of other players went four under today but neither of those were under par on day 1. McIlroy finished -5 on today's round.

    I would also remind folks that Rory McIlroy claimed to be a NY Jets fan so we have a rooting interest here.
