AUGUSTA - On a sweltering day at Augusta National, the kid stayed cool. And now, Rory McIlroy has a comfortable lead heading into the final round of a major.

It's Rory's to lose

The trees are ready to roar and the ground is ready to shake, but for that to happen Sunday, Rory McIlroy will have to cooperate. If the kid from Northern Ireland plays the way he has for the first three rounds, Sunday will simply be a coronation.

Before deliberating, Bonds' jurors get an earful
