Deutsche Bank Championship Leaderboard: Rory McIlroy Moves Into The Lead With Blistering 2nd Round

The second round of the 2012 Deutsche Bank Championship is underway in Norton, and Rory McIlroy is lighting it up early at TPC Boston. McIlroy is 6-under through his first 15 holes as he looks to make a push for the $10 million FedEx Cup purse at the end of the playoffs. McIlroy went off the backside and shot a blistering outward 30 which included an eagle on No. 18.

The Northern Irishman had an impressive month of August, starting a two-month stretch stateside with his second major in as many years. He's now looking to start off a busy September with another win. He's currently in the lead at 12-under, two shots clear of American Ryan Moore who posted a second round 68.

Playing with McIlroy is FedEx Cup contender and fellow Ryder Cup competitor Jason Dufner. The Auburn grad has had a breakout season on Tour and he's 4-under through 15 holes, but still trailing McIlroy by four shots. Phil Mickelson is also on the first page of the leaderboard, currently T9 and 3-under for the day. For a live leaderboard, visit Golf.com.
