Rory McIroy has shot up the leaderboard at the second round of the Deutsche Bank to take a two-shot lead at 12-under. The 2012 PGA Championship winner is looking to get September off on the right foot and he's 6-under through his first 16 holes during Saturday's second round. McIlroy went berserk on the outward nine, posting a 30 that included an eagle on No. 18 as he made the turn.
The Northern Irishman is in the middle of a two-month stretch in the States that will culminate with the Ryder Cup at Medinah. A win in Boston and potential FedEx Cup $10 million purse at the end of the playoffs could make for an absolutely incredible stretch for young McIlroy.
Phil Mickelson is also under par and currently in the top 10 on the first page of the leaderboard. Mickelson posted his second straight round of 68 on Saturday and is now 6-under and six shots back of McIlroy. Jason Dufner, who's playing with Rory, is also posting a low number and is 5-under through 17 holes. He's tied for third at 9-under for the championship. Like McIlroy, Dufner will be a key player at Medinah and he looks to be in form after taking last week off.
