Rory McIlroy may have gotten off to a slow start at the Players Championship in Round 1, but so far in Round 2 he’s unstoppable.

After sinking this uphill putt for eagle on the 16th hole at TPC Sawgrass (the same one he bogeyed Thursday), Rory was 7-under through seven holes. That impressive stretch has already bumped him up to T7. Who knows how long he can keep up this pace, but Round 1-leader Jason Day better watch his back.

McIlroy carded an even-par 72 in Round 1, the same score as defending champ Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth.
