AUGUSTA, United States, April 12 (Xinhua) -- World number three Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland scored a 144 after two rounds of competitions at the Masters, but he still believes that he's got a chance of coming back.
"I think it's going to be in the guys that are chasing, I think it's just so bunched. There's so many guys with a chance coming into the last two days," McIlroy said.
"To be here on the weekend and only be seven back, I'm actually pretty pleased. So if I can get off to a decent start tomorrow, shoot 33 or 32 on the front nine, I'm right back in it. I still have a chance," he added.
The match was hotly contested as a total of five players shared the lead with 137 after the second round on Friday.
"I don't feel like I'm that far away. To shoot under par today considering some of the breaks I got and some of the shots I hit, and I'm right there," McIlroy said.
