Rory McIlroy would move to the top of the FedExCup standings with a win at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
Can Rory McIlroy keep his momentum? Will J.B. Holmes surge to the top in what would be an inspirational victory success story? And what about John Daly? Those are just a few of the storylines heading into the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic today in Memphis, Tenn. You can follow along on Shot Tracker or watch when television coverage begins at 3 p.m. ET on CBS. Or both! McIlroy put a string of three straight missed cuts behind him by carding a second-round, 5-under 65 -- a performance that included a number of major championship-caliber shots -- to move to the top of the leaderboard when play ended on Friday evening. Holmes shot a 64, which included a blistering 6-under 29 on his front side. We'll see if he can get off to a hot start once again. Daly, who was tied for 12th entering the day, is on pace for his best PGA TOUR finish of the season. He tied for 41st at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial -- his best finish in four previous events. And then there is Jonathan Fly, the former Memphis golfer making his PGA TOUR debut. Fly shot a 78 on Thursday and then rebounded with a 64. Not too shabby. So what do you think? Will McIlroy take home the title a week before he defends his U.S. Open championship at The Olympic Club? Will it be Holmes? Or is there a sleeper out there?
