Tournament host Rory McIlroy is relishing the prospect of a weekend battle with Danny Willett after moving into contention at the Irish Open. Brandon Linder Jersey . McIlroy sits one stroke off the pace after mixing five birdies with three bogeys on his way to a second-round 70, ending a run of three consecutive missed cuts in the event.The world No 3 picked up a shot from close range at the 13th and bounced back from a duffed chip at the 17th to card back-to-back gains around the turn, although slipped back by posting bogeys either side of a birdie at the fourth. A 20-foot putt at the ninth lifted the Northern Irishman to seven under for the week and keeps him well-placed to challenge for a first win of 2016, although McIlroy admits he had chances to post a lower round. Rory McIlroy has never finished higher than seventh at the Irish Open I just made a few too many mistakes, McIlroy told Sky Sports. I missed a few more greens today, which was because I missed a few more fairways, so I need to tidy that up.I hit a few more positive putts on the front nine, our back nine, but wasnt great with the putter for the first few holes.It was a little bit erratic in places, but by making six birdies I feel like I gave myself plenty of chances out there and took care of most of the par-5s.I knew I was coming in playing pretty well so I never thought the cut was going to be an issue. Im excited to be in there for the weekend with a chance to win. Willett holds a share of the clubhouse lead with Marc Warren Masters champion Danny Willett followed an opening-round 65 with a one-under 71 to stay top of the leaderboard, although saw Marc Warren move alongside him with a round-of-the-day 66.It wasnt bad, a little bit scrappy, Willett said. It was windy at times and there were a couple of sneakier flags out there as well so you cant come off being joint leader and be too unhappy.

Marek Hamsik, who had earlier missed a penalty, headed Napoli in front in the 23rd minute and Pandev added a second goal five minutes from halftime. Alessandro Matri got Juventus back into the game just after the break but Pandev was on hand to score again in the 68th.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Tampa Bay offensive guard Carl Nicks expects to play in his first game in 10 months when the Buccaneers face the New England Patriots in an exhibition game Friday night. While Bucs coach Greg Schiano wouldnt commit to using Nicks, who is recovering from a left toe injury, the 2011 All-Pro said Thursday, "I think thats the plan now, unless something changes." Nicks last played Oct. 25 but took part in the three days of joint practices with the Patriots that ended with a walkthrough Thursday. Schiano thought Nicks would play but wanted to wait before making a final decision. "I just want to play it by ear, see how he feels," Schiano said. "Right now, it isnt what Im concerned with. Although I want to get him work if he can, Im not going to be overly cautious, but, at the same time, I dont want to be silly." Nicks played all 64 games with the New Orleans Saints after they drafted him in the fifth round out of Nebraska in 2009. But he was limited to seven games last year with Tampa Bay. Nicks said he wasnt nervous about coming back. "If I was a rookie or maybe a second-year guy, maybe," he said, "but its just another day at the office." And, he said, hes "as confident as I can be. This kind of injury, I dont know many people have it. (Im) as confident as (I can be with) the information Ive been told. Brandon Allen Jersey. " Schiano said hes still deciding how many plays his first team offence and defence will get against the Patriots. Theres a chance the Bucs will be facing Tom Brady, an unlikely prospect when the Patriots quarterback left Wednesdays practice with a sprained left knee. But on Thursday, Brady took all the snaps with the first-team offence and played without a limp. He was hurt when defensive end Adrian Clayborn rushed left tackle Nate Solder, who fell back into Brady, forcing the quarterback to the ground where he clutched his knee. "Its just unfortunate," Schiano said. "You talk all the time about letting them throw and the bull-rush stuff, but Im glad hes OK and its one of the dangers. You keep warning (players), but its hard, especially when they get competing with each other. So its part of the deal. Weve just got to try to prevent it, if at all possible." Did Clayborn do anything wrong in charging hard? "I just think everybodys playing football," Schiano said. "Im not going to get into right or wrong. Its an inherent risk with what we do. We try to be really smart with it. They try to be really smart with it. It was just a great three days of work. You cant get this against yourself. So Im really pleased." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
