Rory McIlroy leads Irish challenge at Canadian Open

Rory McIlroy leads Irish challenge at Canadian Open”

"I'm not scared about going low".

Snedeker, who shot a tournament-record 60 on Friday, said the conditions were much tougher in the third round. "Good shots are rewarded with birdie opportunities; bad shots get penalized".

The four-time major championship victor tied his career best when he shot a 61 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship in 2015.

FedEx Cup leader Kuchar finished his round with a hat-trick of birdies as he carded nine gains and a solitary bogey to get to 12 under par alongside Brown, who hit an eagle at the 17th before reeling off five successive birdies from the second after starting on the back nine.

Simpson has played 54 holes without a bogey.

McIlroy was five shots off the lead entering the weekend but shot 64 on Saturday before finding another gear on Sunday.

McIlroy had the shot of the day on the par-four 15th when his approach shot from 130 yards away narrowly missed the cup, setting up a 10-inch birdie putt.

In fact, if any of the Canadian golf fans weren't rooting for the Holywood man before the tournament, then his celebrations could certainly have welcomed more of them onside. But maybe things will go better for him this time. Hughes did bogey the 13th today, one of two squares on his scorecard, but got it back with a birdie on 14 before ending with a string of pars. "You know, all added up to a great score and gives me a chance to win tomorrow". The rough is so deep.

"I didn't need to get them going at all, they were already ready to go when I got there", said Hughes. When I was trying to hit a straight ball, it kept turning on me. "I think what they've been able to do here is like right on the limit of fun, but still in keeping with the traditions of the game, so I think it's been awesome".

That's because there is one sporting event this week that majority will probably be more excited for than the Canadian Open itself.

If any of them can hoist the trophy, it will be the first time since 1954 that a Canadian has done so.

Roger Sloan of Merritt, B.C., was tied for 55th at 2 under, just above the 1 under cutline.

Adam Hadwin, seeking to become the first Canadian victor of the event since 1954, was one shot back after a 67. In fact, he's a proud member of the 59 club. As Taylor, in the day's second last pairing, marched off down the first fairway the crowd started to mobilize along the hilly course.

He also had a look at the number on Friday. But he could only manage a birdie on No. 9, his 18 hole, after pars on seven and eight.

"I felt pretty relaxed on the course", said Lee6, a 23-year-old LPGA Tour rookie from South Korea.

McIlroy rated the win his best since the 2015 Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow in North Carolina and noted he had also won the week before the 2014 PGA Championship, his most recent major victory, so hoped to repeat that experience next week.
