Rory McIlroy leads two up over Keegan Bradley at the halfway stage of their Ryder Cup singles match at Medinah.

Rory McIlroy's late arrival has not stopped him from taking a two-up lead over Keegan Bradley as they head for the back nine at Medinah.

McIlroy took the lead at the fourth hole when Bradley made a mess of his approach shot, landing near the greenside bunker.

His pitch out proved to be a tricky one and he left himself with a difficult putt for par. McIlroy had a short putt for a birdie and sank it with aplomb.

The Northern Irishman could have gone further ahead at the fifth, if it was not for Bradley holing a 15-foot putt for a half.

McIlroy did extend his lead at the sixth hole, however, by chipping in from the fringe to the roar of the European fans.

Bradley was able to snatch a hole back with a fine birdie at the eighth.

Both men gave themselves a decent chance of a birdie at the ninth, with McIlroy closer to the cup.
