PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — Rory McIlroy’s first PGA Tour event in five months lasted only two days.

His road to the Masters hit a speed bump Friday in the Honda Classic, when the world’s No. 1 player managed one birdie in the rain, stumbled badly down the stretch and headed home for the weekend after a 4-over 74, the first time in nearly a year he had consecutive rounds over par.

The cut officially won’t be made until Saturday because of a rain delay of nearly four hours, though he knew the score. And he wasn’t happy about it.

“I don’t like missing cuts,” McIlroy said. “You want to be playing on the weekend and I’m not there. I’m not going to be playing this weekend, which is not nice.”

It was pleasant enough for Patrick Reed, who recovered from a double bogey early in his round by playing bogey-free the rest of the way for another 67. He was the clubhouse leader at 6-under 134. None of the late starters had enough light to play more than 12 holes before the second round was suspended by darkness.

EUROPEAN: Wallie Coetsee holds a one-shot lead at the Joburg Open after a 6-under 65 put him 12 under par and at the front of a group of South Africans in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Coetsee leads from fellow home players Garth Mulroy and Tjaart van der Walt at the halfway mark, with Simon Dyson of England also tied for second at 11 under.

LPGA: Stacy Lewis shot an unblemished round of 8-under-par 64 for a three-shot advantage over Amy Yang after the second round at Chonburi, Thailand.

Lewis, the world No. 3, enjoyed four straight birdies from hole Nos. 4-7, plus four more on the back nine, to produce a two-day total of 14-under 130. She also led at Siam Country Club at the halfway stage in 2013 and finished third.
