Golf – Rory remains in top form

Rory McIlroy made it two wins out of two at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play by beating Justin Harding 3&2, with the Northern Irishman now 4/1 with bet365 to win the tournament. McIlroy, who won the prestigious Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass two weeks ago, made two eagles on his back nine at Austin Country Club to close out his South African opponent on the 16th green. And, having beaten Luke List on day one, it means McIlroy will advance to the last 16 if he avoids defeat against England's Matthew Fitzpatrick in Friday's final round of group games. "It's a nice position to be in compared to the last couple of years, being in control of my own fate a little bit," said McIlroy. "Just got to go out and play well. "Go out and play similarly, take my chances when I can and hopefully get three wins out of three and move on."
