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.

Ugh, this stinks
Sorry, I’m a little late to the party — I had the flu over the weekend and I was probably more miserable than Tiger Woods hacking up a 79 on Saturday at Torrey Pines to miss the second cut, also known as “MDF.” (When more than 78 players make the 36-hole cut, there’s a secondary cut following the third round that whittles the field down to top 70 and ties for the final round.)

I was joined by Yahoo! Sports’ Shane Bacon on Wednesday evening to talk about golf’s year in review, along with what we’re looking forward to this week at Tiger Woods’ World Challenge and in 2014. We like Rory to go on a run of wins, we think Adam Scott will stay in fine form and we’re wondering if Tiger or Phil Mickelson will win another major first. We also take a look at the young, rising talent with Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama, among others.

We also answered some of of your questions. Thanks as always to those who submitted them. Please keep ‘em coming.

(Apologies for my embarrassing sniffles — it was really quite unfortunate and unattractive and I tried to keep it contained, but naturally, I didn’t receive much cooperation!)
