New Zealander Ryan Fox said he felt nearly drunk late in the opening round at the WGC-Mexico Championship on Thursday, after flying across the Pacific Ocean at the last minute to play in the $10.25 million event.

He then started for home by coming close to making a hole-in-one on the 305-yard first hole with a 2-iron.

"My 3-iron probably carries this week somewhere around 300 yards, and it was playing around 295 to the front, so I knew I needed to take a little off and hit a little cut down there", McIlroy said. On the back nine he bogeyed 13th and birdied 15th for a 71 to be placed tied 25th.

"It felt pretty stress-free but I wouldn't say it was easy", McIlroy, the world number eight, was reported as saying by BBC Sport.

A two-time champion of the event, Johnson carded a four-under 67 in the second round to move into 11 under - two shots clear of Rory McIlroy and Matt Kuchar.

"I think I was sixth or seventh reserve at the start of the week, so you don't think you're going to get in a WGC from that far away", Fox told reporters after shooting a respectable one-over-par 72 at Club de Golf Chapultepec.

"You can make a lot of birdies, but with 36 holes to go, I'm just trying to put myself in a position [on Saturday] to give myself a chance to win on Sunday".

PGA: In Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, Andres Romero shot a 6-under 66 in windy conditions to take the first-round lead in the Puerto Rico Open.

"He said my name three times, right?" It went in and out of the bunker, onto the fringe and he holed the putt from 20 feet for his third straight birdie to start the round.

Tiger Woods, the victor of 18 WGC titles from 1999 to 2013, registered a level-par 71.

"The one branch it could not hit, it hit", he said. "Hit both of them dead off the toe".

He finished with four birdies and two bogeys along with that double.

He got back on the 575-yard par-5 15th hole, where he reached the green in three and sunk a five-foot putt for a birdie to get back to par. "Not just this week, but going forward".

Bryson DeChambeau (four over), Jordan Spieth (four over) and defending champion Phil Mickelson (eight over) will have to scramble mightily to get into any semblance of contention.
