Morning Coffee! US Open History Edition

Well, the 2011 US Open may not have that dramatic finish like the Masters, but it will be more historic. On Sunday, Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy enters the final round at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, MD with a 54-hole record score of 14-under par. McIlroy, who blew a four-shot, final-round lead at the Masters, enters the final 18 holes with an eight-shot cushion over Korea's Y.E. Yang. The 22-year old could, again, put together another epic collapse or a 72-hole score for the ages. I'd bet on the latter.
