RORY MCILROY MOVED to the top of the leaderboard as he took charge on day two of the Dubai Desert Classic.

The world number one shot a bogey-free 64 to lead by a shot from Scotland’s Marc Warren at the halfway point in the Emirates.

McIlroy found the conditions too easy during Thursday’s first round, and they were even more rewarding on Friday as he posted eight birdies — including three in the final three holes — to move to 14-under.

“[It was] lovely to finish with three birdies and get into the lead going into the weekend,” he said.

“I feel like all aspects of my game are in good shape.”

Graeme McDowell is two shots back in a tie for third place after he shot a seven-under 65 on Friday.
