Even the windy conditions on Saturday could not keep Mcllroy away from achieving where he deserved. The Irishman shot a shot a four-under par 66. This was a recovery from the bogeys he had in the 6th and 7th holes to get three birdies. He was playing his usual confident self however it did take a little while before he secured himself from the earlier birdies.

Mcllroy was very pleased with the way he performed and said that he needed to keep up with his consistent game. He also said that he had to put up the same game tomorrow [Sunday] and put out his best on the field. The happiness came obvious with the way that the day ended and Mcllroy will need to play exactly how he has been so far.

At the moment, Mcllroy needs a win in order to snatch the position of Luke Donald’s. He id struggle with the weather conditions at the start of the game, and also when the sand became a bumper to his shots, but came out of it beautifully to conquer his position.

“I have to really stay in the present, stay in the moment and not think about everything else that will or may happen, whether it is about going to number one position or winning my first tournament. I’ve just got to go out there and try to put a good number on the board.”

Even though he has a straight focused mind into his game and knows what it will take to win, there are mounting pressures coming onto him. He did add that he is trying his best to conceal his nervousness but it might come up in moments here and there.

Where on one hand, the 22 year old is eyeing the victory cup, there is also Tom Gills in the tournament, who is of 43 years age. Whoever said golf couldn’t be played by youngsters!

Tom Gills is two strokes behind Mcllroy. Then there are Justin Rose, Keegan Bradley and Brian Harman who are further two strokes behind. Its all onto Sunday’s play!
