Rory McIlroy's road to the Masters hit a speed bump Friday in the Honda Classic. He missed the cut.

McIlroy made only one birdie in the rain at PGA National, and three bogeys on his last four holes led to a 4-over 74. The cut officially will not be made until Saturday because of a rain delay of nearly four hours, though that was a formality.

McIlroy says it felt like his first tournament of the year, even though he already has a victory and a runner-up finish this year. He shot a 73 on Friday.

The world's No. 1 player missed the cut for the 29th time in 191 tournaments worldwide, and the 11th time on the PGA Tour. It was his first weekend off since the Irish Open last summer.
