McIlroy set to miss cut at Honda Classic


PALM BEACH GARDENS: World number one Rory McIlroy admitted on Friday (Saturday in Manila) he needs to sharpen up with the Masters only weeks away, as he looked set to miss the cut at the US PGA Tour’s Honda Classic. The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland found just one birdie with five bogeys in a four-over-par 74 for a seven-over total of 147 that left him three shots over the projected cut line when darkness halted the second round of the rain-hit $6.1 million event in Florida. When McIlroy walked off the green at PGA National’s ninth hole—where he made his fifth bogey of the day after hitting into a fairway bunker—Patrick Reed was the clubhouse leader on six-under and McIlroy was four shots outside the projected cut line. When play was halted for the day, Brendan Steele was atop the leaderboard at eight-under through four holes.
