Rory McIlroy played the waiting game, but made the cut on the number.
McIlroy carded a 2-under 70 in the second round of the Shell Houston Open, to finish at 1 under for the tournament.
McIlroy got up-and-down for a birdie 4 from 85 feet on his 17th hole (No. 8) and then two-putted for par on the difficult 236-yard ninth hole.
"As I said, no one likes missing cuts and especially it's my last one before the Masters," McIlroy said. "Nice to have another couple of rounds, do some work on the range this afternoon and hopefully improve on the course that I've already done."
