The 22-year-old from Ireland, Rory McIlroy is off to unbelievable start to the US Open.  In only the second round, McIlroy reached 13-under par, which is a score that has never been reached at any point in the US Open 111-year history in any round.  

After double-bogeying the 18th hole, McIlroy still finished 11-under par, which is the best 36-hole score in the history of the US Open.  Currently, the next closest golfer is Y.E. Yang, who is 3-under par. 

While things are looking good, people can't help but to think about what happened to McIlroy at the Masters in April.  McIlroy had a 4-shot lead going into the 4th and final day of the Masters, but ended up shooting the worst score of any player that ever held a lead after 3-rounds of the Masters.  It was hard to watch as McIlroy finished tied for 15th place.

Hopefully, McIlroy can get over the hump and, unlike LeBron, show up for all 4-quarters of this tournament.  Unlike LeBron, McIlroy should have everyone rooting for him.
