HOYLAKE---Rory McIlroy only saw birdies at Royal
Liverpool, mostly on his scorecard, and even one
pheasant that trotted across the eighth green as he
was lining up a putt. That was but a minor inter-
ruption in his command performance yesterday in
the British Open.
Once he made a birdie, and then another, nothing
could stop McIlroy.
Not another collapse in the second round. Not
anyone in the field. And certainly not Tiger Woods.
After a bogey on his opening hole stirred memories
of another "Black Friday," McIlroy looked more like
the Boy Wonder who won two majors in a runaway.
With three birdies in his last four holes, he posted
a second straight six-under 66 to build a four-shot
lead over Dustin Johnson.
McIlroy spoke of an "inner peace," and the two
secret words that triggered his powerful swing and
set up birdie chances on just about every hole.
"People call it the zone, people call it whatever,"
he said. "It s just a state of mind where you think
clearly. Everything seems to be on the right track.
I ve always said, whenever you play this well, you
always wonder how you ve played so badly before.
And whenever you ve played so badly, you always
wonder how you play so well. I m happy where my
game is at the minute. And hopefully, I can just keep
up the solid play for another couple of days."
Woods is fortunate to even play for two more days.
He started the second round only three shots
behind. He finished it on the 18th hole, standing over
a six-foot birdie putt just to avoid missing back-to-
back cuts for the first time in his career. Woods made
the putt for a 77, matching his second-worst round
as a pro in the British Open.
Woods hit driver five times---four more than he
hit all week when he won at Royal Liverpool in 2006.
None found the fairway. Woods was 14 shots out of
the lead and still thought he had a chance, referring
to Paul Lawrie making up 10 shots in one round to
win at Carnoustie in 1999.
That was against Jean Van de Velde. This is Rory
McIlroy, who has won both his majors by eight shots.
"Two 66s from Rory is a bit special, but he is just
that---he is a bit special," Graeme McDowell said.
"So he s going to be tough to catch this weekend if
he keeps that up."
McIlroy was at 12-under 204---the same 36-hole
score of Woods in 2006.
Dustin Johnson birdied the last two holes for a 65,
the low score of the week. That ordinarily would put
him in the last group with McIlroy, except they will
have company in a historic decision at golf s oldest
championship. Because of a nasty storm approaching
England, the Open will go to threesomes teeing off
on both sides today.
Francesco Molinari (70) will join them. He was
part of a large group at six-under 210 that included
Rickie Fowler (69), Sergio Garcia (70), Charl Schwartzel
(67), Louis Oosthuizen (68) and Ryan Moore (68).
Johnson had a chance at the claret jug three years
ago until a 2-iron that went out-of-bounds on the
14th hole at Royal St George s. He also lost a three-
shot lead in the US Open at Pebble Beach, and missed
out on a playoff at Whistling Straits for grounding
his club in sand at the 2010 PGA Championship.
"I m glad and I m in the last group," Johnson said.
"Just go out there and try to shoot a big number."
Four shots can be lost quickly in any major, espe-
cially in links golf, particularly in nasty weather. McIl-
roy followed up a record-tying 63 at St Andrews in
2010 with an 80 the following day. Even so, the ease
with which he moved around Royal Liverpool was
more frightening than any forecast.
McIlroy picked up his first birdie with two putts
from across the green on the par-five fifth. But it
was on the par-three sixth, when McIlroy deposited
an eight-iron to seven feet for birdie, that he found
that peace and put the pedal down on the rest of
He ushered the pheasant off the eighth green,
regrouped and holed a seven-foot birdie putt, chipped
to tap-in range on the tenth and then kept giving
himself chances on all but one hole until ending with
three birdies. McIlroy was in such a groove that with
the wind at his back, he hit driver 396 yards on the
17th hole and pitched to eight feet. (AP)
