McIlroy in good position in comeback event
Rory McIlroy summed up his comeback performance as “pretty good so far” after the second round of the Kolon Korea Open finished with the Northern Irishman two shots off the lead.
The world number six, who is playing his first tournament after a month-long break, is in a tie for fifth on three-under-par 139 having shot a 69 on day two at the Woo Jeong Hills Country Club course, near Cheonan. It could have been even better had he not bogeyed the ninth, his last.
McIlroy had a topsy-turvy opening nine, with two birdies and a bogey coming in his first four holes and him then dropping a shot on three holes in a row from 14 to 16. But the former world number one bounced back to score five birdies in the next 10 holes.
