McIlroy, who had returned to the world’s No 1 spot on account of terrific consistency before coronavirus interrupted the season, was back in the old routine during round two in Fort Worth. After a three-month absence triggered by coronavirus, the PGA Tour will restart with the Charles Schwab Challenge in Texas.

Just a shot back are Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas, Mexico’s Abraham Ancer and Americans Collin Morikawa and Justin Thomas, both of whom thrilled late on day one. No spectators? No problem. The Tour has initiated a moment of silence each day in Floyd’s memory and left the 8. “Even yesterday, once we got into the flow of the round, things started to become more normal,” McIlroy said.46 tee time free, in reference to the period he was pinned to the ground by a policeman in Minneapolis.

“When that first birdie putt went in and I didn’t get a clap, my hand was trying to go up to wave to someone in the gallery, but there’s obviously no one there. “A great word that I’ve sort of been thinking of over the last couple of weeks is ‘tolerance,’” said McIlroy.

I’ve been playing well at home and I’ve been hitting the ball the way I’ve wanted to. “I got some momentum,” he said on Sky Sports Golf.
