Rory McIlroy fighting to make cut at the Barclays

Rory McIlroy has his work cut out for him if he wants to play this weekend at the Barclays

Rory McIlroy has some serious work to do on Friday if he wants to play this weekend at the Barclays.

The No. 1-ranked golfer, scheduled to begin the second round at Ridgewood Country Club around 10 a.m. PT, stood three strokes below the projected cut line at 3-over.

"I'll need to get off to a good start," he said after a disappointing 74 in the first round.

In early action Friday, Jim Furyk made three consecutive birdies to take the lead at 7-under. Kevin Chappell and Brendon Todd stood in second place a stroke behind.

The Barclays is the first stop in the four-event FedEx Cup playoffs.
