Rory McIlroy is starting to pull away from the rest of the field at the Honda Classic. He shot a first round 63 and today followed it up with a second round 66. McIlroy now has a 4 stroke lead over second place.
Rory shot a 66 today with a pair of bogeys on the back nine. He was bogey free in his first round but today, he bogeyed holes 11 and 12. He then was able to get back to what he needed to do to hold his lead. He pared 13,14 and 15 and made birdie on holes 16 and 18 to go along with the 4 birdies he made on the front nine.
It has been a while since Rory has played consistent golf and it is great to see him taking control of the course again.
He birdied holes 3-4-5 and 7 on the front and pared all the others. If he continues to take advantage of the low scores this course can yield, he could become the next Honda Classic Champion.
There is still a lot of golf left to be played at PGA National, but the way McIlroy has played the first two rounds, he could win this thing.
McIlroy is at 11 under par and holds a 4 stroke lead.
