Rory McIlroy is 18 holes away from getting the monkey off his back and shaking his memories of the meltdown at The Masters. McIlroy has run away from the field at the 2011 US Open and holds an eight-shot lead over Y.E. Yang, his playing partner for Saturday's third round. McIlroy has been nearly flawless this week, carding only one bogey and a double bogey through 54 holes as Congressional Country Club has swallowed up the rest of the field.
McIlroy carded a 3-under 68 on Saturday to get to 14-under for the tournament. After recording a double-bogey to finish Friday's second round, McIlroy finished with four birdies and only one bogey on Saturday as he stretched his advantage. With good scores to be had on the rain-softened course, he was still able to give himself a comfortable lead ahead of the final round.
Coverage on Sunday begins at 1:30 p.m. EDT and runs until 7:30 p.m., or whenever the final round concludes. NBC will have the broadcast duties again for the final round.
Here are the tee times for Sunday's final round. McIlroy and Yang will be paired together again, though Yang has some work to do to make up the enormous deficit.
