McIlroy closes in on leader at Texas Open

April 5th, 2013 in News

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Rory McIlory found the groove he was looking for when he made the last-minute decision to sign up for the Texas Open.

McIlroy matched the low round of the day with a 5-under par 67 on Friday and moved within three shots of the lead, continuing his last-minute preparations for next week's Masters.

The world's No. 2 golfer, who decided to play in the tournament late last week, is three shots back of leader Billy Horschel, who birdied his last two holes to post his second straight 4-under 68.
