2012 Deutsche Bank Championship: Rory McIlroy Takes Tournament Lead

On day two at the Deutsche Bank Championship, the top of the leaderboard fell off a bit from their record-breaking pace from Friday; however, new leader Rory McIlroy is still on pace to break the tournament record by two strokes. After shooting a 65 on consecutive days, McIlroy is now 12-under par and at the top of the leaderboard, although he has Louis Oosthuizen just one stroke behind him.

One day after Seung-Yul Noh shot a 62 and three other golfers, including Tiger Woods, shot 64 or better, Saturday's best score was a 65, shared by four golfers. Noh's par performance dropped him from the tournament lead to a tie for fifth. Woods' 68 kept him in third, two strokes behind McIlroy.

Phil Mickelson, a former Arizona State Sun Devil, shot a 68 for the second consecutive day and climbed two spots on the leaderboard to a tie for No. 15. At six-under par, Mickelson is six strokes off the lead, but still very much in contention with two rounds left to play.
