Bogeys aplenty for McIlroy, Harrington

It was another disappointing day for the remaining Irish golfers at the US PGA Championship.

TWO DOUBLE BOGEYS dropped Rory McIlroy right out of contention at the US PGA Championship in Atlanta on Saturday.

The Holywood man took a six on the par-4 first and then had bogeys on third, sixth and eighth holes to effectively end any hope of challenging at yet another Major in 2011.

He seemed to recover his poise a little with consecutive birdies on 13 and 14 before firing his tee shot into water on the par-3 15th, taking five strokes to finish the hole. Another birdie on 18 saw him finished up in the a tie for 64.

It was also a difficult day start to the day for Padraig Harrington, who dropped five shots on the front night to fall right back into the pack.
