McIlroy surges up the leaderboard on day three at Wentworth


Rory McIlroy has surged up the leaderboard on day three of golf's BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

The world number two's moved to six-under-par after a superb seven-under round of 65, less than 24-hours after sinking a four feetĀ putt on the 18th to make the cut.

McIlroy admits he's probably going to be too far behind the leaders going into tomorrow's final round.

"I've done what I can and shot a good score and I'll give it a go for sure tomorrow, I don't know if it's going to be quite good enough, but at least I've given myself some hope.

"It's amazing, I only took two weeks off but it felt like I had not played golf in years on Thursday. It was strange. But it has been nice to sort of figure it out a little bit, play a bit better yesterday. Obviously played much better today.

"So even if I am seven, eight shots back and I get off to a decent start, you never know. But at the same time I'm a realist and I know I won from seven back a few years ago and I feel like that's something that happens maybe once in your career. Maybe try to make it twice.

"At least I'm moving in the right direction, which is the main thing."
