Rory McIlroy has crashed out of the Players Championship in Florida.

He finished his second round 10 over par for the tournament and missed the cut by 10 shots. 

The Holywood man had opened his defence of the title with a seven over 79 on Thursday. 

Friday was an improvement but three over still left him near the bottom of the field, tied for 142nd place. 

Graeme McDowell also missed the cut. He was plus three after two rounds, just inside the top 100.

It was more like it for the Portrush man's local Irish League team on Friday night, with Coleraine beating Crusaders 2-0 in a second v third clash at Ballycastle Road.

That cut the gap at the top, but Linfield restored their five-point advantage by thrashing Carrick.

Here's how it played out on Saturday:
