Ill mcilroy shares lead

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Rory McIlroy overcame what he thought was sunstroke to move into a share of the halfway lead at the PGA European Tour's season-ending World Championship on Friday.

McIlroy shot 5-under 67 and was tied with first-round leader Luke Donald (68) and Marc Warren (67) at 11-under 133. They were one stroke ahead of Louis Oosthuizen (67) and Branden Grace (65).

McIlroy said he had "a really sore head and a fever" after his Thursday 66 that left him one behind Donald. "I think it was a bit of sunstroke. I took a few things and felt better, but I'm not feeling great again."

Sergio Garcia, playing for the first time since laser eye surgery, matched the course record with 64 to sit four shots behind.
