By mustang6560 on 6/20/11
Rory McIlroy set multiple records with his win on Sunday at the U.S. Open at Congressional Country Club. First, I heard he set 12 new records. Then, I heard it was 15.

I did my best to search for all of the records Rory set, and by my count it's 12. If you know of any I missed, let me know and I'll add it to my list.
