It wasn't any easier for Spieth or Mickelson who both finished +8 while Ian Poulter and Scott Piercy lead at -1. McIlroy did hold it together on the back nine and landed a birdie on 15.

Conditions have been reported to be windy but the round leaves McIlroy as a massive outsider for the tournament. As for the other Irish, Graeme McDowell is currently in action while Shane Lowry will tee off shortly.
