His golf game couldn't quite match the excitement.
The four-times major victor, though, found his form just after the turn and put himself in a tie for the lead after 14 holes - before falling back one stroke to four under par for a second round of 69 in succession. "I think it's flawless for my game, but I have to go make the team".
McIlroy carded a two-under-par round of 69 to be well in the mix as he pursues his second Claret Jug and fifth major title. "It would be cool to return the favor and let him look at it a little bit". He had reached three-under after 11 holes and was looking good to mount a challenge though he dropped four shots in the final four holes and left the 18th at one over.
Two tee shots into bunkers on the back nine. "He plotted his way around, which I expected him to do, and he was very conservative off the tee". But today with the wind coming out of the south, southeast, it didn't allow that.
"If I can keep it in the fairway, I feel like I can control my golf ball around the green", Kisner said, according to the Associated Press. "It's just really hard". It was the tee shot of U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who hit driver off the tee to set up an easy birdie.
But another trend continued. That year, he tied for fourth at the Masters and sixth at The Open.
Still, this does not seem as much of a hurdle.

Yet even when the wheels threatened to fall off his round, Woods dug deep to par three of the toughest closing holes on the Open circuit with a calm authority.
"If you don't believe in yourself out here, you're going to get run over pretty quickly, " Kisner said.
Asked if he gets any special privileges in the house for shooting the lowest opening-round score, Kisner joked, "I probably get to eat first". I flew home with him after he won and I'm staying with him this week and he no longer has it. "It's kind of fun to watch him do that, to be honest".
A birdie on the first hole was just the start he needed.
He followed with a 40-footer for birdie at the 11th, but that turned out to be the last of his three bogeys.
"I've been doing this for years, braces and bandages, just that this time it's actually visible", he said. But it was significant to KT Tape in Utah, whose executives were pleasantly surprised on Thursday morning when the buzz made it to their offices before most had even come in for the day.
