It was former number one Luke Donald who was back to his best today shooting a superb 65 to take the lead of the DP World Tour Championship, but he’s got the company of current number one Rory McIlroy sitting just one shot back following a fantastic 66.
Donald set the early place and showed that last weeks win at the Dunlop Pheonix in Japan was a sign that he is back to his best and competing with the likes of McIlroy again.
McIlroy didn’t have the best of starts but came to life on the back nine, with five birdies in seven holes putting him right back into contention where he loves to be.
The Northern Irishmen finished the day on six under par alongside Scotland’s Marc Warren and Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano of Spain.
All of the big names are near the top of the leaderboard waiting to pounce tomorrow and hopefully set up a terrific weekend for us to sit back and enjoy.
