McIlroy impresses once again, closer to title

Rory McIlroy, another day, another great round.

Rory McIlroy was fantastic once again and takes a 8-shot lead over Y.E. Yang going into the final round Sunday. He continued to make US Open history, becoming the first player to ever reach 14 under par, at any stage of the 111-year old tournament. McIlroy shot a three-under 68 to make his critics even more silent. He can erase those critics by winning the tournament, something he failed to do at the Masters, when the 22-year old crumbled under pressure and shot a 80 on the final day. The only misstep on Saturday was a bogey on 10, but quickly rebounded with birdies on 11 and 13. There was a lot of movement on this Saturday, as Jason Day and Lee Westwood both shot 65, but still are unlikely to win unless McIlroy spontaneously combusts once again.

    Hey I really think that mcilroy can become the next tiger woods. But u have to remember that people thought Sergio Garcia would be amazing when he was younger and he hasn’t won a major at the age of 31. I think mcilroywill win and become a great player.

    • You’re spot on. I think so too, McIlroy’s only issue right now is closing things out. Really good point about Sergio Garcia. I watched the third round (on a plane) and the commentators were saying over and over how Sergio has seemed to lose his love for the game, and I think it’s partly because he hasn’t had much success.

    Hey @TheNewsofSports, really nice post, just like you said on my blog hopefully Mcllroy can close this thing out, if he doesn’t it will be down hill from there…

    It would be a sad thing to watch if he falters
