April 9, 2011 

CLOSER LOOK

Leading: Rory McIlroy followed his 65 with a 69 and held onto the top spot with a 10-under total of 134.

Pursuing: Jason Day, who shot the low round -- 64 -- is two back at 136, followed by Tiger Woods and K.J. Choi at 137.

And Phil? Defending champ Phil Mickelson is among 10 players tied for 20th at 2-under 144.

Shot of the day: Woods hit an 8-iron from the right rough 150 yards to set up a 12-foot putt for last of his nine birdies on the day.

Key stat: McIlroy’s bogey-free streak of 29 holes ended when he failed to get up and down out of a bunker at No. 12.

Noteworthy: PGA champion Martin Kaymer, the world’s top-ranked player, and two other major winners from last year -- Graeme McDowell (U.S.Open) and Louis Oosthuizen (British) -- failed to make the cut at 145.

Quoteworthy: “I don’t really care what anyone else does. I don’t need to know.” -- McIlroy, on whether he was worried seeing Woods climb the leaderboard.
