Rory McIlroy remains very much in contention at the Korea after a second round 69 saw him take a five-way share of the lead at the halfway mark of the Kolon Korea Open.

The Northern Irish man began the day one shot behind overnight leaders Rickie Fowler and YE Yang however a round of five birdies and three bogeys at Woo Jeong Hills Country Club was enough for him to finish five under par alongside Fowler and Yang with Moo Jung-kyung and Bronson La’Cassie completing the quintet.

Speaking to OneAsia’s official website the US open winner said “It was a good round. I felt it could have been lower but I played solid golf and holed some nice putts,”

“It’s a good start to the tournament and I have put myself in a good position going into the weekend.”

Fowler and Yang signed both went round in one-under 70s however the round of the day belonged to Moo who moved into contention with a round of 66 with Australian La’Cassie going round in 67 with the leading group enjoying a three-shot advantage over Kim Meen-whee.
