But after an opening-round 8-over 79 on Thursday, even Friday's low round (tied with Justin Harding, Xander Schauffele and Kevin Streelman) still left him one stroke shy of a punched ticket to the weekend at Royal Portrush.
Northern Ireland still has plenty of local skin in the game even with McIlroy's early ejection. Local product Shane Lowry is T1 moving into the weekend, and Englishmen Tommy Fleetwood and Lee Westwood are both 7-under through 36 holes after both posted matching 4-under-par 67s Friday. The two are tied for third with Justin Rose two back and Brooks Koepka and Jordan Spieth among a group at T8 just behind him.
Lowry sits tied atop the leaderboard with J.B. Holmes as we advance to a pivotal moving day on Saturday, the two posting a 36-hole score of 134. They'll take the tee Saturday at 10:50 a.m. ET (3:50 p.m. local time), the last grouping of the day. Fleetwood and Westwood will go 10 minutes before them. The course is expected to be difficult, so anything is possible on Saturday.
