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.

Rickie Fowler is third on 9 under, with Spain’s Jon Rahm in fourth place on 8 under par.

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