Rory McIlroy punishes wedge for poor shot at Merion
Rory McIlroy has a tough week at the U.S. Open, and his wedge paid the price.
McIlroy, the 2011 U.S. Open champion, has been in a slump for much of the season. En route to a 14-over finish for the tournament Sunday, McIlroy lost his second shot into the creek that protects the 11th green at Merion Golf Club. After the water ball, McIlroy's psyche wasn't the only thing bent out of shape.
