AS OF NOW, Rory McIlroy is the No. 1 ranked golfer in the world.
The way things are going, though, that could soon change.
McIlroy is just a few holes away from missing his second straight cut, playing on the European Tour. Through 12 holes in the second round at Wentworth, McIlroy is seven-over par.
That wouldn’t be a big deal at a US Open, but right now the leader is at 12-under par. McIlroy was so frustrated with his game on Thursday that he threw his seven-iron.
CBSsports.com’s Steve Elling summed McIlroy’s first two rounds up nicely on Twitter:
Just a few weeks ago at The Players Championship — golf’s de facto fifth major — McIlroy missed the cut in a tournament where he was a favoUrite. Of course, McIlroy was in a playoff to win a tournament just the week before, but today’s showing reaffirms the mercurial nature of his game.
