Bethesda, Maryland: Play has started in the final round of the U.S. Open, and it will take something monumental to prevent Rory McIlroy from winning the trophy.
With the first players making the turn around Congressional on Sunday morning, McIlroy was preparing to take an eight-shot lead over Y.E. Yang into the final round.
McIlroy had a four-shot advantage heading into Sunday at the Masters in April, but shot 80 and finished 15th. This time, he's sitting on a lead double that size after shooting 14-under 199, a U.S. Open record for 54 holes. Before McIlroy, no player had been lower than 12 under at the U.S. Open.
