McIlroy clings to PGA lead while Tiger makes cut


PALM BEACH GARDENS: A strong finish helped Rory McIlroy grab a one-stroke lead over Brendon de Jonge after the second round of the Honda Classic while top-ranked Tiger Woods barely made the cut on Friday (Saturday in Manila). McIlroy held his nerve after two early bogeys to finish with a flourish, firing a four-under par 66 that left the 24-year-old world number eight from Northern Ireland on 11-under 129 through 36 holes at the $6 million US PGA event. Woods, a 14-time major champion, fired a 69 to stand on par 140, making the cut on the number after snapping a streak of five rounds at par or worse at PGA National.
