"I'm excited for Sunday to see how everything holds up," said McIlroy.

McIlroy added: "It felt good, I hit a few more fairways today which definitely helped.

"I drove the ball well, gave myself plenty of chances, didn't convert too many but even when I put myself out of position I held some good pars.

"If I can just make a couple more birdies and keep the bogeys off my card, I shouldn't be too far away."

Tommy Fleetwood shot a disappointing 74 to drop down to seven under and T9.

Tiger Woods could only shoot a 73 to fall back to three under T28.
