Rory McIlroy bounced back on Friday as he put together an amazing eight under 64 in the second round of The Players. McIlroy started off of number 10 and shot a back nine 29 to tie the record set by Shane Lowry yesterday. The Northern-Irishman had a chance to shoot a course record 62 with a birdie on the 9th, but he settled for a bogey.

Plenty of other scoring action went on early on day 2 as Colt Knost matched Jason Day’s 63 with his own nine under round on Friday. Like McIlroy, Knost had a chance to set the course record, but ended up with bogey on 18.
