Florida: Rory McIlroy did just enough to keep the lead in the Honda Classic with a 1-under 69, giving him a two-shot lead on Saturday and a chance to win on the U.S. PGA Tour for the first time in 18 months.

McIlroy avoided a big number early in his round with a superb shot off the pine straw to escape with bogey, and he gave himself a slightly bigger cushion late as the wind picked up at PGA National. He hit 5-iron over the water and into the wind to 10 feet for birdie on the 16th hole. He narrowly missed two more to close out his round.
