McIlroy eyes 'aggressive' final round

Northern Irishman three ahead in Miami

Rory McIlroy, leading by three strokes after three rounds of the WGC-Cadillac, is aiming to be 'aggressive and assertive' on the final day of the tournament.

McIlroy's superb seven-under-par 65 on Friday left him two shots behind leader Adam Scott at the midway point.

With the Australian struggling to a third-round 73, the Northern Irishman took over at the top with a 68 on Saturday, sitting three ahead of both Scott and Dustin Johnson.

McIlroy, however, will not be simply trying to protect his advantage on the last day.

“You have to just keep going and set yourself a target,” said the County Down native, who famously collapsed during the final round of 2011 Masters. “Basically, I can't play defensive - it isn't my style.

“I need to go out there and be aggressive and be assertive. Obviously (you) pick and choose your moments, but for the most part, set yourself a number, get out there, and do it.

“That takes everything else away, as well. It takes away the thought of winning a tournament (and) all the other stuff.”

McIlroy is on 12-under for the tournament, with Johnson and Scoot on -9, while Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Danny Willett are two strokes further back.

Ireland's Shane Lowry lies on three-over following a disappointing third-round 75.
