Golf Australia Express : Issue 40—The US Open
THE DEFENDER A GGRESSIVE, FEARLESS AND relentless. Rory McIlroy was all those things—and more—during the US Open at Congressional Golf Club in Maryland last year. And by Sunday evening, with the remarkable 16-under event score next to his name, McIlroy sat atop the leaderboard to be crowned the US Open champ. The 22-year-old achieved plenty in four days. He established new records along the way to his maiden major, including smashing the low 72-hole aggregate with 268 (formerly 272), the low score in relation to par with 16-under (formerly 12-under), and became the youngest winner since Bobby Jones in 1923. With his emphatic victory the young gun from Holywood, Northern Ireland also set the record straight for the doubters who believed his back-nine 43 during the final round of the Masters was a sign he couldn’t win a big one.
