Rory McIlroy, Northern Ireland, now leads the Omega Dubai Desert Classic after the conclusion of the delayed round two at Emirates Golf Club in Dubai.
Rory finally carded a second round -8 under par 64, after the resumption of play, to lead the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at -15 under par for 36 holes, and will take a two shot advantage into the week-end;
“That was pretty nice, I knew with the conditions this morning there were chances out there, obviously with the two par fives and 17.”
“To take care of those and birdie a couple others, to finish five under for my last seven was a nice way to finish this morning.”
“I didn’t really have a score in mind or anything. I just wanted to go out there and play a good seven holes and hopefully get myself into contention for the last couple of rounds.”
“I sort of did that and maybe a little bit more and it’s nice to go into the weekend in the lead.”
“Look forward to getting out there again this afternoon.”
Sitting in second place is Jamie Donaldson, Wales, with 36 hole total of -13 under par, from a second round -3 under 69.
Li Haotong, China, occupies third place, a second round -6 under 66 giving him that position on his own at -12 under par.
Round three is now in progress.
