Rory McIlroy has taken the clubhouse lead on day two of the Dubai Desert Classic on Friday.
After starting three shots behind leader Rafael Cabrera-Bello, McIlroy hit four birdies on the front nine on his way to a seven-under 65.
The world number two birdied on the first two holes and chipped in at the eighth. McIlroy was then unlucky to miss with his eagle effort from ten yards at the ninth.
The 22-year-old finished with seven birdies overall.
