McIlroy hot in late stages of second round to take Dubai lead

Even for Rory McIlroy, winning isn't easy. Last week he shot 18 under par for four rounds and finished tied third in Abu Dhabi.

Jamie Donaldson flirted with the European Tour's first-ever 59 before settling for a 10-under 62 Thursday in the first round of the Dubai Desert Classic.

Rory McIlroy seized the halfway lead in spectacular style when the second round of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic resumed on Saturday morning. Spain's world number 8 Sergio Garcia, the defending champion, opened with a five-under par 67.

Compared to McIlroy, 22-year-old Chinaman Li is a relative novice. He proved that was no fluke with a third-place finish in last year's Open Championship.

China's Li Haotong is the man to catch going into tomorrow's final day.

All eyes, though, will be on McIlroy in the final round and he looks ready to pounce.

He picked up birdies on the second, third and fourth before dropping a shot on the eighth.

"Hopefully I have a bit of a better game tomorrow".

He is a two-time champion at the tournament, with his first win in 2009 also being his first professional win.

"I feel like if I play my game I'll be able to shoot something a bit lower tomorrow, and I think I'll need to shoot something lower to be able to win". I thought if I just stayed patient, I'll play good. This is one of my favorite tournaments of the year, a place I've always done well at, some good memories. "So I just stayed patient all day". Li, after all, is laborious at times in comparison to him when it comes to pulling the trigger.

"This is the reason why I started playing golf", he said. I wouldn't say I hit it incredible.

That left him two ahead and he soon moved three shots clear in round three.

It guaranteed that he goes out in the final group in the final round, walking the fairways with a two-time victor of the tournament and a four-time major champion.
