Despite battling sinus issues as well as making his fourth straight start, McIlroy finds himself in contention again after hitting an 8-under-62 with no ghosts to take an early one-hit lead in the Traveler’s Championship.

“I didn’t hit a single golf ball on Monday and Tuesday,” McIlroy said after the round. “I flew back to Florida for the day, spent the night in my bed, came back on Tuesday, didn’t show up to the track, and yesterday playing Pro-Am in the rain was not very good preparation, but I feel like I played well in Brooklyn. I’m not going to lose it in two days. I knew my game was good.”

McIlroy has climbed to No. 2 in the world rankings – his highest ranking in two years – thanks to his last six starts, including second at the Masters, fifth at the Wells Fargo Championship, eighth at the PGA Championship, T-18 at the Memorial , winning the RBC Canadian Open and T-5 last week at the US Open.

After a full month of golf, as well as the sport’s most grueling challenge, the US Open, McIlroy felt the TPC River Highlands was the perfect place to end his streak of successful games before putting his clubs down for a while.

“It’s like a US Open rehab,” he said. “You’re like, ‘Oh, I can actually make some birds. This is cute”. I like to come here a week after the US Open. It kind of gives you the opportunity to get low scores and succeed, which is nice.”

McIlroy is not feeling well because his daughter Poppy “brought something home from kindergarten last week.”

With three more rounds to go at the TPC River Highlands, McIlroy will go all out and go all out as he tries to add a 22nd PGA Tour win to his record before the break.

“I think it’s simple at the moment – energy levels are fine,” he said. “I have three more rounds left until I have a couple of weeks of rest and preparation for the open championship. I’m going to give it my all in those three rounds.”
