Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy is four shots behind leader Collin Morikawa in the WGC-Workday Championships in Florida after scoring a 6-under 66 in the third round.

Morikawa of the United States hit 8 birdies and 3 bogies when he moved to 15 under with a 5 under 67 card.

Overnight leader Brooks Koepka was under the age of 13 at the age of 70 and came in second with Billy Horsekel (69).

Another American, Webb Simpson, carded 69 to move under 12 and McIlroy and Patrick Reed stepped back one more shot.

McIlroy posted a birdie on the opening hole, and after the next double bogey, he recovered with more birdies on the 7th and 8th holes.

In the back nine, he picked up five shots in the last seven holes, including the 13th eagle on par 5.

Morikawa, who had 6 birdies in the 7th hole of the front nine, could have gone further, but chased Bogey on the 13th and 17th holes.

Koepka in the US started with two bogies and it seemed that the birdies on the 16th and 17th were struggling before returning him to the leaderboard.

This year’s first World Golf Championship event in Bradenton has replaced the WGC-Mexico Championship, which was canceled due to Covid-19 concerns.
