McIlroy hangs on to Hong Kong Open lead
HONG KONG (AP) — Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland retained a share of the lead at the Hong Kong Open on Friday after shooting a 1-under 69 in the second round.
The U.S. Open champion was joined at 7-under 133 by first-round co-leader Alvaro Quiros of Spain, who also had a 69.
Panuphol Pittayarat of the Philippines shot a 65 and Scotland's Richie Ramsay had a 66 to sit a shot back in second.
McIlroy had the chance to grab the outright lead at the last hole, but missed a 4-foot putt for par to finish an up-and-down round with a bogey, his second over the last three holes.
