Asked if he ate for free as a defending champ, he said, "No, you don't."
TREADING WATER: Rory McIlroy is trying to string together a few good rounds before defending his PGA Championship next week at Oak Hill.
So far, his game has just been OK. He opened with a 70 and followed with a second-round 71.
"I didn't hit many fairways and didn't hit many greens but I was happy with how I hung in there," he said. "I just need to work a little bit on the range this afternoon, just to try to straighten (things) out a little bit."
McIlroy, who won a year ago by eight strokes at Kiawah Island, said he's looking forward to his role as the defending champion.
"It's always nice to defend a major championship. It's the second one that I've done," he said, referring to his win at the 2011 U.S. Open. "I'm looking forward to it. I'll be busier with a few things going on, but it's a nice problem to have."
