Davis Love III, seek­ing to be­come the old­est-ever win­ner on the PGA Tour at age 53, shot 69 and is at 8 un­der, along with de­fend­ing cham­pion Danny Lee and Rus­sell Hen­ley.

Tag Rid­ings (Ra­zor­backs), Bryce Molder (Con­way) and John Daly (Dar­danelle, Ra­zor­backs) did not make the cut.

Kirk out front

Kather­ine Kirk’s 9-un­der 63 was the best round of the day Fri­day at the Thorn­berry Creek LPGA Clas­sic at Oneida, Wis., when play ended about 3:45 p.m. be­cause of light­ning. Kirk was three strokes ahead of Jaye Marie Green, who had a 66. Tied for third were Ash­leigh Buhai (66), Moriya Ju­tanu­garn (68) and Il­hee Lee (68). Emily Tu­bert (Arkansas Ra­zor­backs) did not make the cut.

McIl­roy misses cut

Rory McIl­roy missed the cut at the Ir­ish Open for the fourth time in five years, lead­ing the four-time ma­jor win­ner to ex­press con­cerns on Fri­day about parts of his game ahead of the Bri­tish Open. McIl­roy shot 1-over 73 in his sec­ond round over the links at Port­stew­art, North­ern Ire­land, and was 1 over for the tour­na­ment, which he is host­ing to ben­e­fit his foun­da­tion. He was four strokes below the cut mark and 14 strokes off the joint lead­ers, Ben­jamin He­bert and Daniel Im. Jon Rahm, play­ing in the same group as McIl­roy, shot 67 to be alone in third place, a stroke off the lead held by the pair that also topped the leader­board af­ter the first round. He­bert and Im both shot 67 in their sec­ond rounds. The No.2-ranked Hideki Mat­suyama shot 68 and was five shots back. Pep An­gles (Cen­tral Arkansas) did not make the cut.
