McIlroy left with work to do

Rory McIlroy is five shots adrift of leader Steve Stricker heading into the final round of the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village.

The Northern Irishman led after the first round but he has plenty of work to do on Sunday after carding a 71 in Saturday's third round.

McIlroy double bogeyed the par-three fourth, hit the pond on the 11th to bogey and needed an eagle on the 15th to finish on 71.

American Stricker finished terribly on Saturday but remains three-under-par after a 69, three ahead of nearest rival Jonathan Byrd.
