Good news: You didn’t miss a whole lot. Bad news: You didn’t miss a whole lot.

Due to the delays during the first two rounds of the Honda Classic, half the field finished their second round on Saturday morning. Unfortunately, 51 minutes after the third round began, play was suspended at 12:51pm due to a dangerous weather situation (e.g. high winds, torrential rain, thunderstorms in the area, etc.).

Following an opening eight-over 78, it looked like Brooks Koepka was probably going to take an early exit and miss weekend play at the Honda Classic. It appeared more probable after he made a bogey on his second hole, no. 11, in the downpour at PGA National. However, he was saved by the horn, so to speak. After a long delay, Koepka reeled off eight birdies and posted a six-under 64 — 14 shots better than a day prior — in tough conditions to save his weekend plans.

Rory McIlroy surprised everyone, including himself, with his poor performance at his 2015 debut on the PGA Tour. The world no. 1 certainly didn’t play up to his standards in the first round of the Honda Classic, posting a three-over 73, and he was unable to turn it around during the rainy, weather-delayed second round at PGA National. In fact, he actually shot one stroke worse on Friday, carding a four-over 74 for a seven-over total, which puts him well outside the cut line.

Rory McIlroy’s 2015 debut on U.S. soil wasn’t exactly what anyone expected from the no. 1 player in the world. Battling extremely tough conditions and swirling winds at the already difficult PGA National, McIlroy posted a three-over 73 (eight shots off the lead) in the opening round of the Honda Classic.

Believe it or not — it was actually a pretty good score all things considered. McIlroy showed some fight at the end of his round, finishing with back-to-back birdies on the last two holes. But, it still wasn’t up to par, so to speak, for him.

Heading into his debut on the PGA Tour at this week’s Honda Classic, Rory McIlroy is atop of the golfing world, holding a firm grasp on the no. 1 spot in the world rankings for over a year.

He’s starting his year in America without any outside distractions, whether it may be legal or personal. He’s already won once in 2015, capturing the Omega Dubai Desert Classic earlier this month in his second start on the European Tour. (He finished second in his season opener at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship in January.)

Tiger Woods will miss next week’s Honda Classic at PGA National. This news doesn’t come as much of a surprise since he announced last week that he would be taking a leave of absence from competition because his game was not acceptable for tournament golf.

Hold up
Heading into the final round at PGA National, Rory McIlroy held a two-shot lead — and through seven holes, he had a three-stroke advantage over the closest competitor. McIlroy seemed destined to successfully convert a wire-to-wire victory at the Honda Classic on Sunday. He looked calm and collected for most of the front nine and appeared like he’d probably cruise to the champion’s circle for his second time in three years.

Cruisin'
Rory McIlroy recovered from a slow start, with two bogeys in his first three holes, and posted six birdies to fire a four-under 66 in the second round of the Honda Classic. McIlroy, who opened with a flawless seven-under 63 at PGA National on Thursday, is 11-under at the halfway mark.
