Rory McIlroy Looks like he’ll miss the interruption to the Players Championship, which was suspended due to storms on Friday.

At TPC Sawgrass, first-round 76 left the Northern Irish in a tough fight and things didn’t improve in the second round, with McIlroy bogeying fifth and then doubling up sixth for a bird to hover over the gold after 10 holes.

That’s five shots behind the predicted cutoff mark and 14 shots behind co-leaders Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Adam Svensson.

None of the players starting in the afternoon were able to complete their rounds, the game was stopped just before 16:30 local time due to the lightning threat and was not expected to continue until Saturday morning.

McIlroy started the event as one of two players. Scottie Scheffler who could potentially surpass Jon Rahm as world number one.

The trio were due to play together on Saturday, but Spaniard Rahm, who was at the top of the FedExCup standings, withdrew before the second round due to illness.

Scheffler performed significantly better before the game was suspended, moving up to five below par with birdies in ninth and 10th places.

South African Bezuidenhout and Canadian Svensson were four-under-par in the 14 and 11 hole laps, respectively.

Ben Griffin sit two shots ahead of Min Woo Lee and Collin Morikawa, and overnight leader Chad Ramey fell to four after a disastrous 17th place.

Beginning his tour on the ninth hole, the unaware Ramey got off to an excellent start, flanking two of his first three holes, hitting two balls in the water on just 17 and taking a four-bogey seven.

Danny Willett He is the leading English player both in the round and under three overall. Tyrell HattonJustin Rose and Aaron Rai are one more shot behind.

Meanwhile a man counting his lucky stars is old world number one Jordan SpiethHe seemed determined to miss the cut when he took a rebellious tee hit the water on his last hole only to hit a spectator’s knee, bounce back onto the turf road, and set up an eagle.
