McIlroy fires a 63 for lead in Mexico
Mexico City Rory McIlroy flirted with a hole-in-one on the same par 4 where Tiger Woods hit out-of-bounds with his first shot in Mexico. That's about how their days went Thursday in the Mexico Championship. McIlroy, already off to a solid start on the back nine, hit a 2-iron on the 305-yard opening hole at Chapultepec Golf Club that landed on the front of the green and was rolling just left of the pin when it settled six feet away, leading to an eagle that carried him to an 8-under 63 and a one-shot lead over Dustin Johnson. Woods got the raucous Mexican introduction for his opening tee shot, a 5-wood that also landed on the green - the wrong green.
