Wheatcroft leads Houston
HUMBLE, Texas (AP) — A late birdie might just be enough to give Rory McIlroy two more rounds before the Masters.
Steve Wheatcroft, a Monday qualifier for the Houston Open, had another 67 to take the lead among early starters Friday at Redstone Golf Club.
Far down the leaderboard was McIlroy, struggling to make the cut for the first time this year against a full field.
Wheatcroft was at 10-under 134 and had a three-shot lead.
