Peter Uihlein and Robert Rock share the lead after the second round of the Irish Open on Friday, while Rory McIlroy missed the cut in his final tournament before the British Open.
Uihlein shot a 4-under-par 68 to move to 9-under 135 with England's Rock, who posted a 6-under 66 at the Carton House course on the outskirts of Dublin.
It was a disappointing day for the home fans, however, as McIlroy shot a 72 to remain at 2 over, missing the cut by two shots. Fellow major winners Padraig Harrington, Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke also didn't make it to the weekend in a dismal showing by the Irish and Northern Irish contingent.
