Smashing Records: Golf Superstar Rory McIlroy Breaks U.S. Open 36-Hole Low Record, Commands Lead Into Weekend
There are doubters out there. But make no mistake: Rory McIlroy is on a mission. Oakley’s Global Golf Superstar swung his way into Golf History on Friday – setting the Congressional Country Club (Maryland) ablaze by shooting 66 and a total of 11-under-par 131 in the second round of the U.S. Open. Not only is he holding a commanding six-stroke lead into the weekend, he also shattered the event’s 36-hole low record in its 111 years in existence. No other player in history has ever scored better than nine under par through the first two rounds of the Open. Ever.
Sports like Tennis are as much of a mind game as they are pure athleticism. No one knows this better than Oakley International Tennis Star Janko Tipsarevic. He recently revealed his three toughest opponents. And not surprisingly, he’s really, really close to one of them. Janko is currently raging into the semifinals at the AEGON International 2011 in Eastbourne after topping Grigor Dimitrov of Bulgaria in straight sets 6-3, 7-6(2). He’ll take on World No. 59 Kei Nishikori of Japan next.
