McIlroy in FedEx Cup hunt


Rory McIlroy is in contention to win the FedEx Cup after a four-under 66 left him two shots behind Dustin Johnson at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

The Northern Irishman needs to secure victory on Sunday and hope that Johnson finishes tied-second or worse to claim the title and the $10m bonus which comes with it.

The four-time major champion continued his good recent form with a bogey-free round on Saturday, four birdies including at the 16th and 18th holes, cutting his deficit to the leader.

American Ryan Moore sits alongside McIlroy on -6 after also signing for a 66.

Johnson surged clear with birdies at the fourth, fifth and sixth but a wayward back nine saw him drop strokes at 14, 15 and 16 to leave him level on -8 with Kevin Chappell.

Three other players out of the 30 - Patrick Reed, Paul Casey and Adam Scott - who qualified for this final FedEx event can claim the title, but only the Englishman has any kind of chance, Casey sitting five shots off the pace alongside Charl Schwartzel on three under.

Jason Day also had the chance to win the $10m bounty but he was forced to withdraw with a back injury during the second round on Friday.
