He had been closing on the lead at that point
Rory McIlroy remains seven off the lead after Day 2 at The Barclays Championship.
The four-time major winner had managed to get himself to within a shot of the lead during his second round before back-to-back bogeys during his closing four holes saw him slip back into the pack on 2-under par overall.
Overnight leader Patrick Reed has now moved into the lead on 9-under, two shots clear of Jason Day.
Graeme McDowell is further back on 2-over.
