Friday's Birdies and Bogeys

Who were the second round winners and losers at TPC Sawgrass? It's time to take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys.

May 9, 2014
The Players Championship: Rory Mcilroy

Birdie: Rory McIlroy

How do you get a birdie for shooting 74? By rallying for a 32 on the back nine in windy conditions to get back to even par and make the cut on the number. Following a five-hole stretch on the front nine in which he shot six over, McIlroy birdied four of his final six holes, including the difficult par-4 18th. Last week at Quail Hollow, McIlroy expressed his displeasure at another back-door top-10 finish on the PGA Tour. If he were to pull off another such finish this week, though, he'd have to have a much rosier outlook. --A.M.
