McIlroy two behind Scott at Doral

Rory McIlroy

McIlroy missed the cut at last week’s Honda Classic

Rory McIlroy hit a seven-under-par 65 to move two shots behind leader Adam Scott at the halfway stage of the first World Golf Championship of the season.

The Northern Irishman had eight birdies and a bogey and is tied for second on eight under with America’s Dustin Johnson who hit a bogey-free 64.

Scott, who last week won his first title in nearly two years, hit a six-under 66 to lead on 10 under.

England’s Danny Willett is fourth on seven under after a 69 at Trump Doral.
