US Open Golf 2011: All the Field Can Do Is Hope for a Rory Mcilroy Meltdown
Rory McIlroy is Giving Little Hope to 2011 US Open Golf Field
Golf is a frustrating game. Every time I hit the links, there is always some snot-nosed kid who is hitting the ball straighter and farther than me. This adds to an already mind-taxing game.
The same is happening to any US Open golfer not named Rory McIlroy. The field is trying to maneuver what has become one of the toughest US Open courses in recent memory.
Yet, McIlroy is strutting around Congressional like it was some pitch-and-putt municipal course. This kid must be driving the other golfers up the wall.
He is hitting everything he wants to, and easy shots are the only ones he is being afforded at the moment. This is counter to what his round partner Phil Mickelson is doing. While Lefty chips on from the rough, McIlroy is swinging from the fairway.
And so it goes.
McIlroy has a commanding lead on Friday. Through 15, McIlroy is 11-under par. His closest competitor is Y.E. Yang who is yet to tee off and sits at 3-under for the tournament.
Make no mistake, three-under is a great score thus far at Congressional. The roughs are brutal, and the weather is not helping matters in the least.
Yet, McIlroy is golfing with ease. It seems the only thing the field can hope for is a meltdown. There is no one in the field that has shown the same flourish. Nobody will match his ungodly score. It is time to cross your fingers if you are US Open golfer not named Rory McIlroy.
