Rory McIlroy has had a strong season on the PGA Tour, that is definitely considering joining the tour again in 2012.

It’s quite a reversal for the Northern Ireland native who had dropped his tour membership after the 2010 season.

The 22-year-old knows that his decision would mean playing at least five more United States events each year. He says his favorite events including the Memorial, are in the U.S.

McIlroy does not like playing on the European Tour due to it being wet and cool all the time.

Another reason is that he is dating the #1 women’s tennis player in the world, Caroline Wozniacki.

Northern Ireland native Rory McIlroy ended a memorable and record-setting week at the U.S. Open at Congressional in Bethesda, Maryland with his first major victory.

The 22-year-old played four days of mistake-free golf at Congressional Country Club ended on Sunday when he finished off a 2-under-par 69 to break U.S. Open records which is suppose to have the toughest test for all golfers.

He ended the tournament at 16-under-par.

The last 10 U.S. Open champions combined were 14 under-par.

After the tournament, Rory walked off the 18th green on Father’s Day with his dad, Gerry, who worked three jobs so that his only son could pursue his dream of being a pro golfer.

McIlroy finished at 268 to break the U.S. Open record by four shots.

This is the second straight U.S. Open title for a Northern Ireland native. Graeme McDowell won it in 2010.

Irishman Rory McIlroy kept making the U.S. Open course look easy as he pushed his lead out to eight strokes with one last round to play.

In the third round of play, McIlroy shot a 3-under-par 68 to finish at 14-under 199, which breaks Jim Furyk’s record for the best 54-hole score by one shot.

The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland leads Y.E. Yang (70) by eight strokes and Lee Westwood (65), Jason Day (65) and Robert Garrigus (68) by nine.

The eight-shot advantage is two short of the lead Tiger Woods was able to take into Sunday at Pebble Beach in 2000, when he dominated the field by an unbelievable 15 shots.

Rory McIlroy is looking unbeatable at the U.S. Open in Bethesda, Maryland.

The 22-year-old is going after the record books and doesn’t realize it ; he’s just playing golf.

The native of Northern Ireland became the first player in the 111-year history of the U.S. Open to reach 13 under par. Despite a double bogey into the water on the 18th hole, his 5-under-66 was good enough to set the 36-hole scoring record at 131.

At 11 under par, he has a six-shot lead over former PGA championship winner Y.E. Yang (69), matching the U.S. Open record set by Tiger Woods in 2000 at Pebble Beach for the largest margin after two rounds of play.
