McIlroy gets in the red, gives it back

ATLANTA -- Rory McIlroy finally joined his playing partner, Tiger Woods, in red numbers with a birdie at the 12th hole.

McIlroy made a 22-footer there to move to 1 under for the day. Woods also converted at the 12th -- his birdie coming from about 5 inches shorter -- to move to 3 under and one stroke off the lead held by Justin Rose.

Neither player could stand prosperity, though, as both bogeyed the 14th hole. Woods drove into the trees on the right side of the fairway and ended up missing a 10-footer to save par. McIlroy's troubles came on his third shot from the fringe that checked up 20 feet away from the pin.
