Out-of-form McIlroy misses the cut at Scottish Open

Rory McIlroy is making an earlier-than-planned journey south to Royal Birkdale for next week’s British Open after missing the cut by two strokes at the Scottish Open in Irvine following a 1-under-par 71 in his second round on Friday. Padraig Harrington (68), Callum Shinkwin (68) and Alexander Knappe (65) shared the lead at 9-under 135, with Ian Poulter and Andrew Dodt a shot back after 69s. Patrick Rodgers shot a 7-under 64 to take a two-shot lead after the second round of the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill. Bernhard Langer made five birdies on the back nine through the 16th hole to take a two-shot lead over Corey Pavin before rain suspended play late in the second round of the Constellation Senior Players Championship in Owings Mills, Md. Langer, 59, was at 13 under.
