American Jordan Spieth leads by one shot after the second round of the Travelers Championship in Connecticut.
Spieth, the Masters and US Open champion in 2015, mixed four birdies with a bogey and a double bogey for a one-under-par 69 on Friday, moving to eight under par overall.
One shot behind him is countryman Troy Merritt, who shot a two-under-par 68.
But Rory McIlroy's struggles continued with five bogeys and two birdies in a three-over-par 73.
Northern Ireland's four-time major winner trails Spieth by eight shots at River Highlands but made the cut by a shot.
Ireland's Padraig Harrington scored two birdies and one bogey for a one-under-par 69 and remains three shots behind Spieth.
While England's Paul Casey finished on two under par with 68 and is one shot further back overall.
