Rory McIlroy out to end major drought at US Open


**MANDATORY CREDIT: USGA** Rory McIlroy is targeting a fast start to the 120th US Open as he seeks to add further credence to golf's so-called 'Nappy Factor'. New fathers have been seen to experience an unusually high rate of success and McIlroy is hoping that rings true as he seeks to end a six-year major drought, either at Winged Foot this week or in the Masters in November. With a home in Florida and an American wife it will be the 'Diaper Factor' getting the credit if McIlroy can claim a second US Open title on Sunday, but the world number four is well aware he needs to get himself high on the leaderboard from the outset.
