RORY MCILROY IS still in contention at the KLM Open in Holland after shooting a second-round 65 today.
Bad weather and delays caused by vandalism forced McIlroy to play 27 holes in a short space of time, but that did not stop the Northern Irish golfer from securing a score of five under par.
He is currently three shots behind the joint leaders – Stephen Dodd of Wales and Germany’s Marcel Siem.
Speaking after his round, McIlroy described his problems with ants, after his final drive finished near an ant hill. He said:
“I still feel there are some going up my legs. I don’t feel I drove the ball particularly well. There were a couple of loose shots and I got some lucky breaks.”
His assured perfomance today means it could be a weekend to remember for both McIlroy and his girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki, who plays her semi-final against Serena Williams in the US Open tomorrow.
