My board this week includes all great players, but Rory McIlroy's performance at Hoylake has made most of them look very average.

On Saturday, McIlroy toyed with Rickie Fowler before closing with eagles at 16 and 18 for a 4-under 68 and a 6-shot lead heading into Sunday's final round.

McIlroy's play at Hoylake is reminiscent of many past dominant performances by Tiger Woods, who had a triple bogey and a double bogey on his way to a very forgettable 73 on Saturday.
