Rory McIlroy says he does not need to do anything out of the ordinary to catch leader Cameron Smith

Rory McIlroy took a leaf out of the Dr Bob Rotella book of mental golf and insisted that he just has to play his normal game to chase down leader Cameron Smith and claim his second Claret Jug tomorrow.

The Holywood star was four shots adrift of the Australian with three holes to go but made a key par save at the 16th, then made just the fifth birdie of the day at the 17th enroute to a 68 that leaves him just three shots behind, tied for third with Viktor Hovland on 10-under.
