Rory McIlroy is the man to beat after Moving Day at the 2014 Honda Classic.

On a day when great conditions for golf led to good scores all around, McIlroy was shot a one-under 69 to maintain a two shot lead at the end of the day, twelve under par.

The 2012 Honda Classic champion is being chased by another 24-year-old, Russell Henley of the U.S. Henley made the shot of the day when he holed out with a pitching wedge for a 150-foot eagle on the 14th hole.

Brendon de Jonge started the day just one shot back of McIlroy, but faltered often and finished seven shots off the pace at five under par.

The biggest story on Saturday happened before most weekend warriors were even out of bed. After barely making the cut after the first two days of play, Tiger Woods parlayed his early start into one of the best rounds of the day. His 65 leaves him tied for 17th headed into Sunday, with a chance at his first top 10 finish of the year.
