McIlroy shoots 67, 2 shots off Abu Dhabi lead

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) - Rory McIlroy birdied his last two holes to post a 5-under 67 and lie two shots off the lead two rounds into the Abu Dhabi Championship on Friday.

McIlroy, at 7 under overall in the European Tour event, was rapt to be in contention for a second win in three tournaments. Playing partner Phil Mickelson was also happy, though in relief to make the cut by two shots at 1 under after a 70.

In a two-way tie for the lead were Scotland's Craig Lee (67) and Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello (68) at 9 under, a stroke ahead of England's Danny Willett (63), who eagled the par-5 8th hole at National Course beside seven birdies.
