DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Rory McIlroy shot a 4-under 68 Saturday to take a one-stroke lead after the completion of the fog-delayed second round of the Dubai Desert Classic.

The 19-year-old from Northern Ireland had a 12-under 132 at Emirates Golf Club after more than 5 hours, 50 minutes were lost on the opening two days.

Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa made a hole-in-one on the 11th and finished with a 65. He and Henrik Stenson of Sweden (65) trailed McIlroy by a stroke.

Three-time champion Ernie Els missed the cut after rounds of 71 and 73 left him at level-par 144. The cut was 143.
