It's been eight years since Rory McIlroy claimed victory at The Open.
But the way he has been playing so far, one more win can be expected.
McIlroy just finished his second round at St Andrews for The Open Championship.
He finished with a 4-under 68, putting him at 10-under over the weekend.
McIlroy's round included six birdies and two bogeys, with three straight birdies at the start of his last nine.
Yesterday he had seven birdies and one bogey.
Unfortunately, McIlroy's strong start wasn't enough to place him in the top two in the first two rounds.
Two Camerons - Cameron Young and Cameron Smith - both edged them out to claim the top spots.
Rory McIlroy hasn't won a Major since winning The Open and the PGA Championship in 2014.
But between 2016 and 2018, he was consistently among The Open's best performers, each time finishing in the top five.
But McIlroy's last two appearances at The Open haven't been his best.
He missed the cut in 2019 and finished 46th last year.
Not that McIlroy even has a commanding lead on the rest of the field.
A ton of golfers have had strong days so far and are ready to challenge the top contenders till the end.
