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.
