McIlroy at Tour Championship

Brooks Koepka missed an eight-foot eagle putt at the final hole but did enough for a one-stroke halfway lead over Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

The tap-in birdie to end the second round lifted Koepka to a second successive three-under 67 as East Lake, particularly its gnarly rough, bared its teeth.Koepka posted a 13-under total after starting the week as third seed at seven-under in the staggered scoring system and the race to win the record $15 million first prize.Fellow American Thomas, the top seed who started at 10-under, shot 68, while Northern Irishman McIlroy had a 67.Xander Schauffele, the 2017 champion, eagled the last for a 69 to trail by two strokes as the frontrunners separated themselves from the pack in the season-ending event. McIlroy finished strongly with two straight birdies, rolling in a 15-footer before recovering from a poor tee shot at the par-five 18th for a tap-in.
