Holmes keeps the lead; McIlroy loses his temper

DORAL, Fla. (AP) J.B. Holmes kept his lead Friday at Doral. Rory McIlroy lost his cool.

Holmes was 11 shots worse than his record-tying 62 in the opening round. A bogey on the 18th hole gave him a 1-over 73, still enough to take a two-shot lead over Ryan Moore going into the weekend at Trump National Doral.

McIlroy was one club lighter than the start of his round. Frustrated by a 3-iron into the water on the eighth hole, the world's No. 1 player slung his 3-iron some 50 yards into the water. It was an embarrassing moment for McIlroy, though he the splash - from the club, not the ball - appeared to settle him. He wound up with a 70 and was eight shots back halfway through the World Golf Championship.
