U.S. Open 2011 Official DVD
Relive Rory’s Capitol Success. The 2011 U.S. Open will forever be remembered as the time Rory McIlroy tore apart the entire field, as well as the record books, at Congressional, Maryland. The 22-year-old from Holywood, Northern Ireland, set or tied twelve records on his way to a stunning victory, posting the lowest total in U.S. Open history with his score of 268, an astonishing 16 under par. His nearest challenger, Jason Day, finished an incredible eight shots adrift.
Following his final round meltdown at Augusta just two months previously, Rory showed he bore no scars from the Masters as he set the pace for the rest to follow. After carding a six under first round score of 65 to secure the largest first round lead since 1976, some majestic – and at times thrilling – stroke play over the next 36 holes saw McIlroy head into the final round an amazing eight shots clear.
This time McIlroy made sure history would not repeat itself by carding an assured level par score of 72 to secure his first Major win, with his Dad Gerry watching from the sidelines on Father’s Day. Rory’s victory marked the end a spectacular four days of near-perfect golf to ensure that the U.S. Open trophy once again made its way back to Ireland.
