McIlroy blows it after bad second round

McIlroy july 14

Rory McIlroy's challenge at the Scottish Open golf crumbled yesterday - but he's hoping for a home victory at next week's Open Championship at Royal Liverpool.

The Northern Irishman followed up his course record from the first round to hit a 7-over par second day in Aberdeen - meaning he's level par at the halfway point.

But it's been a disappointing summer for UK sport - and McIlroy told Sky Sports News he'd like to make things better at next week's Major.
