    Nothing could throw Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy off his game through the opening two rounds of the 2011 US Open Golf Tournament.  Not the thickest of roughs.  Not the trickiest of greens.  Not even the creepy ginger that was peering over his shoulder during an interview following an incredible opening round that saw him shoot […]
