Sunday Herald Sun - - Sport -

RORY McIl­roy heads into next week’s Bri­tish Open on the back of a third missed cut in four events as his poor form con­tin­ued at Dun­don­ald in the Scot­tish Open.

Three-time ma­jor win­ner Padraig Har­ring­ton (68) was at nine-un­der par and shared the sec­ond-round lead yes­ter­day with Ger­man Alexan­der Knappe (65) and Eng­land’s Cal­lum Shinkwin (68).

Aus­tralia’s An­drew Dodt and English­man Ian Poul­ter fired rounds of 69 to be one shot off the pace.

Amer­i­can Rickie Fowler (70) was in a trio at seven- un­der while Adam Scott slipped to 15th, to sit along­side fel­low Aus­tralian Ja­son Scrivener at four-un­der par.

The 2013 Masters cham­pion Scott carded a 71 but Scrivener moved up the leader­board with a 68, helped by four birdies in seven holes. AMER­I­CAN Pa­trick Rodgers shot a seven-un­der 64 yes­ter­day to take a two-shot lead af­ter the sec­ond round of the US PGA Tour event in Illi­nois.

Aus­tralia’s con­tin­gent was led by Greg Chalmers who fired a 68 to be five un­der and tied for 29th. Cameron Percy (69) was at four un­der.
