Rory McIlroy shoots 64, gets in position to win four of five

By Kyle Porter | Golf Writer

Rory McIlroy knows what it's like to take home the trophy at the Deutsche Bank Championship as the four-time major winner won this tournament just two seasons ago by one over Louis Oosthuizen.

On Sunday McIlroy put himself in prime position to win his fourth tournament in five outings and second in three years at TPC Boston.

McIlroy shot a third-round 64 that included seven birdies and no bogeys. He trails leader Russell Henley by two and Billy Horschel by one.

Here's his card:

I don't think you ever (sense a good round), said McIlroy on Sunday. "You just keep playing, you take it one hole at a time. I turned in 3 under, but it's not like I haven't done that before. The first couple of days I played well at the start and just couldn't keep it going."

He certainly kept it going on Sunday with absurd shot after absurd shot that culminated in a near ace on the par-3 16th.

McIlroy will be paired with Chris Kirk on Monday (just as he was on Sunday) as he goes for yet another tournament title and another step in a series of them towards his first FedEx Cup Championship.
