Rory McIlroy magic fires him into the lead at WGC-Mexico Championship


Former world number one McIlroy broke his round open with a thrilling eagle on the par-four 14th hole.

We've already had so many hole-outs this week at the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Rory McIlroy may be sick but the four-time major victor is the man to beat at the halfway stage after rising to the top of the WGC-Mexico Championship leaderboard by two strokes.

Sam Brazel is now the leading Australian at one under courtesy of his two under score through 15 holes.

And the four-time major victor was ideally placed to fulfil his part of the bargain after a second round of 65 at Chapultepec Golf Club which left him two shots ahead of Phil Mickelson, Justin Thomas and England's Ross Fisher.

There was to be a blemish on the Northern Irishman's scorecard on the 12th and 17th holes, however, as he dropped shots on both to ensure that things remain tight heading into round three.

Mickelson's long-time caddie, Jim "Bones" Mackay, lasted just three holes of Friday's second round before being forced to leave the course due to a stomach virus which has affected several players in Mexico City.

"I was having breakfast and Phil called and said just be around if something happens", Tim Mickelson said. "He's so fun to be around and he did a great job today".

In his first tournament in seven weeks because of a rib injury, McIlroy made six birdies and an eagle.

"Starting the day I would have taken 65, but I feel like I could have been a few more ahead", McIlroy told Golf Channel after posting a nine-under 133 total. "My body is in great condition and if I keep playing well, I have a chance going into the weekend".
