Rory McIlroy will enter the final round of the Masters at Augusta in second place.

The Holywood star fired a third round of 65 last night to move to 11 under par.

He’s 3 shots behind the leader,American Patrick Reed – the pair will be in the final group later today.

McIlroy carded 5 birdies, an eagle and no bogeys in his penultimate round as he bids to win the green jacket for the first time.

If McIlroy wins, he will complete the career Grand Slam of golf majors, but he’s not thinking about that.
