McIlroy needs big final day

Rory McIlroy shot his lowest round of the week so far but was still five shots off the lead after day three of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in Akron.

The Northern Irishman followed up his 68s on Thursday and Friday with a 67 on Saturday to move to seven-under par but will probably have to shoot even lower if he is to catch Australian Adam Scott who is 12 under.

Padraig Harrington shot a disappointing 73 to drop to four over while Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke were eight and 10 over respectively.
