PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Rory McIlroy birdied his last two holes Thursday for a 7-under 63 to take the lead after one round of the Honda Classic.

It was quite a turnaround for McIlroy since just last year he was 7 over through eight holes of the second round when he walked off PGA National.

McIlroy buried a few long putts to help the cause, though his game was solid through a cloudy afternoon.

He was one shot ahead of Russell Henley, who birdied five of his opening six holes before cooling.

Tiger Woods, playing for the first time in a month, was eight shots behind after a 71.
