During last week’s 111th U.S. Open, Rory McIlroy was unstoppable as he dominated the field and finished the tournament at a stagging 16-under par – a feat never seen before during the history of the u.S. Open. At only 22 years old, Rory is one of the youngest U.S. Open champs in history. (For those history buffs out there, Bobby Jones is the youngest winner – he was only 21 years old when he won the U.S. Open in 1923).
Rory broke record… after record… after record at Congressional Country Club during the week. When the dust settled, 12 tournament records were either set or tied, including:
• Fastest to reach double-digits under par (26 holes)
• Largest 36-hole lead (T-6)
• Low first-36 holes (131)
• Most strokes under par for 36 holes (-11)
• Low first-54 holes (199)
• Most strokes under par for 54 holes (-14)
• Low 72-hole total (268)
• Most strokes under par for 72 holes (-16)
