World number nine golfer Rory McIlroy is even par after the second round of the Honda Classic at the PGA National Resort & Spa's Champion Course in Palm Beach after carding a 69.

McIlroy started his round early on the back nine and reeled off nine straight pars before birdies at the 2nd and 4th saw him climb to one under par. However, a bogey on the 7th hole left the County Down native level for the tournament.

Padraig Harrington tees off at lunchtime and is one over par after shooting a 71 on Thursday.

Camillo Villegas is currently the leader on the course at eight under par.
