Day 4 Live Blogger: Matt Krummel

Welcome to Sunday at the U.S. Open, and Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there reading this. 

Rory McIlroy again has a seemingly insurmountable lead heading into the final round of a major. 

Sound familiar?

Most golf fans remember with heartache watching Rory blow up on Sunday at the Masters, squandering a four-shot lead to begin the day and fading from contention as the afternoon wore on. Today the lead is eight, and Rory looks to be all systems go heading into the final round.

I'll be here all day providing updates and commentary on what could well be an historic day in U.S. Open history. Even though he's not in the field, Tiger Woods (and his U.S. Open scoring records) might be the only thing Rory is chasing today.

You can't make this stuff up.

Day 3 Live Blogger: John Burke

Welcome to Day 3 of Bleacher Report's live blog of the 2011 U.S. Open. My name is John Burke and I will be taking over the blog today. 

Well, it's moving day at the 2011 U.S. Open. 

Day 2 was as exciting as one could have hoped. Rory McIlroy continued his fantastic play. Even with a double-bogey on the last hole he finished the day at -11 par. 

As in every U.S. Open some big names will not be playing the weekend. This list includes:

  • Rickie Fowler
  • Hunter Mahan
  • Ernie Els
  • Ian Poulter

I'll be here all day keeping you informed with the latest news and updates out of Congressional.

Day 2 Live Blogger: Andrew Kulha

Welcome to Bleacher Report’s live blog and coverage of Day 2 of the 11th US Open Championship at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland.

The first day was filled with great golf and intriguing storylines and I’d personally like to thank Will Leivenberg for his work updating the blog yesterday

My name is Andrew Kulha and I’ll be taking over the reins for day two.

Day one was definitely as interesting as you could hope for on the first day of the US Open. Rory McIlroy had a near flawless first day, and I expect much of the same from him.

On the other hand bigger names like Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and especially Phil Mickelson really struggled on day one. I’m not expecting the same from them on day two.

I’ll keep you updated on the latest news, stories and information regarding the US Open, and once the TV coverage kicks in I’ll be following that like a hawk to keep you updated.

I’ll be following the coverage on ESPN and ABC as well as keeping you updated on leader board scores, opinions and any inside information I can get my hands on!

Well, the golfers are on the course and swinging away, so here’s hoping for another great day of golf at Congressional!

Day 1 Live Blogger: Will Leivenberg

As the morning dew gently dissolved off the fairways and greens Thursday morning at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland—the host course for the second major championship of the 2011 season—a talented international field descended upon the course in an all-out competition to etch their names in golf's history books.

However, Congressional is a beast with no single way to be tamed. Measuring just over 7,500 yards, the gargantuan length of Congressional will demand distance as well as accuracy off the tee.

The puzzle only becomes more perplexing as players face the uneven lies, slippery greens and deep sand traps widespread throughout the course. 

But this arduous test has a worthy adversary in the world's most elite field of the season. Phil Mickelson is undeniably the fan favorite, entering Congressional with the momentum of five previous runner-up finishes in the US Open, but he has struggled to find a fairway and his chances are already looking slim.

Dustin Johnson's fusion of power, touch and desire to avenge his implosion at this event last year make him another serious threat as well. Johnson had difficulty early in the round and has yet to rebound. 

Rory McIlroy, the 22-year-old Northern-Irish sensation, currently holds the lead and will have the weight of multiple major championships where he has contended on his shoulders as he continues this tournament. 

Even without Tiger Woods competing due to injury, there's a cutthroat group of golfers that will be aggressively vying for sports glory at the 111th US Open.
