The second round of the Honda Classic has been suspended due to darkness, with Brendan Steele leading. Rory is in a dark place of his own, missing the cut here.
Brendon sits on top of the Honda Classic leaderboard at -8 under par, despite having only completed four holes of the round at a wet, windy and delayed golf day at PGA National in Florida.
Patrick Reed is in second place, he has completed both rounds at -3 under par 67 for a -6 under par total.
“It just seems like when the wind is blowing here, it allows me to get creative and hit more of my shot‑shaping shots I normally hit.”
“It’s fun golf and especially with the weather with how it’s been, it’s playing how I like this golf course to play.”
“The main thing is I feel like I just keep on improving day‑in and day‑out.”
“I feel like I’ve improved on little things that I’ve needed to be a little more consistent, and luckily we’ve been in the hunt coming down Sunday. We’ve done pretty well.”
Jim Herman is currently in third position, having completed three holes in his second round, for a -5 under par total.
Luke Donald has completed his two rounds and is sharing 4th spot with Ian Poulter,who has played eight of his second round, and Padraig Harrington has finished six, all at -4 under par for the tournament.
Luke will get a sleep in tomorrow, and plenty of time to review the putting mistake that has been the key to his disappointing form, he also said not to worry too much about Rory;
“I’ll obviously get to sleep in, in my own bed, as well, which is nice.”
“It’s something that’s certainly been missing a little bit the last month or two, and it’s nice to get back on Bermuda greens.”
“I feel a lot more comfortable on these greens for some reason.”
“Rory has been by far the best player in the world for the last year or so. I wouldn’t worry and read too much into it.”
Rory let his feelings be known in no uncertain terms;
“I’m pissed off, I don’t like missing cuts. You want to be playing on the weekend, and I’m not there.”
“I guess after coming off a three‑week break,and then felt a little, just a little, I wouldn’t say rusty, but just not quite on top of my game Thursday.”
“Then, I mean, I felt like I was trying to get something going and couldn’t. Coming off three weeks off and playing in conditions like these, it sort of shows you where your game’s at.”
