RBC Canadian Open R3

Rory McIlroy takes share of the lead

June 06-09
Hamilton Golf & Country Club, Hamilton, Ontario
$7,600,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 4


Rory McIlroy moved into a three-way tie for the lead after a sparkling third round at the RBC Canadian Open.

Northern Irishman McIlroy carded a six-under 64 to charge up the leaderboard and sit alongside American duo Matt Kuchar and Webb Simpson on 13 under.

A birdie at the first set the tone for McIlroy, who made two more gains before the turn and a further three on the back nine.


Kuchar, who hit 63 on Friday, could only manage a one-under 69, bogeying the 15th to lose the outright lead.

Simpson carded 67 and has now played 54 holes without making a single bogey.

Irishman Shane Lowry, American Brandt Snedeker and home hope Adam Hadwin are a shot behind on 12 under.
