McIlroy three clear at Irish Open

Northern Irishman in control at K Club

Rory McIlroy completed an error-free third round of 70 early on Sunday morning to take a three-shot lead into the final round of the Irish Open at the K Club.

Saturday's play was suspended for four hours due to the threat of lightning and although the players came back out late yesterday evening, they were unable to complete their rounds leading to an early start for some on Sunday morning.

The four-time major winner carded three successive pars to finish his third round and ensured he remained three shots clear of Masters champion Danny Willett who signed for a round of 74.

Russell Knox lies in joint third place four shots off the pace with the Scot joined by South African Richard Sterne while his compatriot Jaco Van Zyl and the English duo of Matthew Southgate and Tyrrell Hatton sit just a shot further back.

Southgate hauled himself back into contention with back-to-back birdies to complete his third round but it is McIlroy, who had missed the cut the three years at this event, who has control of this tournament and is the man they all have to try and catch.
