McIlroy fires third round 66 to sit one stroke behind leader Fitzpatrick in Florida

Matthew Fitzpatrick played bogey-free golf as he eased past Rory McIlroy for a one-stroke lead over the Northern Irishman after the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida. Back-to-back birdies at the 15th and 16th holes enabled the Englishman to overtake McIlroy and saved pars at his final two holes for a five-under-par 67 to head into Sunday’s final round at nine-under 207. A victory would be a first on the PGA tour for Fitzpatrick, who has five wins on the European circuit. Defending champion McIlroy shot a 66 to surge up the leaderboard at Bay Hill.

The former world number one, strong off the tee, birdied four of his first six holes and three of his final four as he continued solid play for the season.
