Rory McIlroy says the pace of play during the second round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth was 'a complete s--- show'.
McIlroy birdied the last in near darkness at the flagship event to card a 71 and sit at 1-under par for the championship.
That left the Northern Irishman on the projected cut line with players still to complete their second rounds.
Players who still need to finish their second round here will tee off at 7.15am on Saturday.
"It was a s-- show," McIlroy joked of the whole scene in response to a question from Press Association's Phil Casey amongst a pool of reporters.
McIlroy's group teed off at 2pm BST and took three hours and 40 minutes to complete 13 holes. It only got worse.
McIlroy confirmed his heart 'sank a little bit' when he walked off the 14th green and saw a crowded tee box on 15.
He's had a few 4am and 5am wake-up calls this week and was worried he wouldn't finish.
"Today felt nice [having a late start] so if I had to have another [early] start tomorrow [it wouldn't] be great," he added.
"I'm glad I birdied the last and given myself an opportunity to play the last couple of rounds."
When play finished for the day it was the 23-year-old Swede, Ludvig Aberg, who was tied for the lead.
Aberg backed up his opening 68 with a 6-under 66 on Friday to reach 10-under along with another Swede, Sebastian Soderberg.
Soderberg eagled the 18th to leapfrog Adrian Meronk, Thomas Detry and Masahiro Kawamura who are grouped together on 9-under.
