US Open 2011 (Final Round, Update): Rory McIlroy Now 16-Under Par, Leads By 10 Strokes

Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy, who entered the final round of the US Open at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, MD with an eight-stroke advantage, has birdied two of his first four holes to move to 16-under par and now has a 10-stroke lead over Korea's Y.E. Yang and England's Lee Westwood, who's at 6-under par..

Currenlty, McIlroy is making a mockery of the US Open, which is considered the toughest tournament in golf. Everything looks so easy for the 22-year old, who has made two birdie putts inside 10 feet. Its clear that McIlroy has the strategy of playing aggressive and keeping the peddle to the metal.

The question is: Will McIlroy begin to ease off, which might help the rest of the field possible catch him? Time will tell, but right now McIlroy is putting on a show for all golf lovers. There's nothing like watching a player take his game to another level. Especially, to a level that nobody has ever seen in a US Open.
