RORY McILROY fired a sensational second round comeback to give himself a slim chance of making the cut at The Open. The Northern Ireland hero playing at Royal Portrush wanted to punch himself after a shock first round which included a first-hole quadruple bogey eight. Rory McIlroy made an incredible second round comeback but it looked like not being quite enough to make the cut But he showed true grit and class with an amazing six under 65 thanks to a brilliant four under back nine. That left him two over for the tournament and, with the cut projected at one over, in desperate need of those still playing to drop shots. The top 70 players and ties make the cut and play the weekend. More to follow.
