Birdie blitz for McIlroy

Rory McIlroy was delighted to rediscover his form with a third-round 66 in the Quail Hollow Championship last night.

McIlroy, who turns 21 on Tuesday, looked back to his best in North Carolina with a round containing nine birdies and three bogeys which lifted him from joint 48th overnight to a share of sixth on five under.

"It was a great round of golf, I played really really well," McIlroy said. "I feel as if I've been hitting it well the last couple of weeks and not getting much out of it but today I knocked a few putts in and gave myself plenty of chances.
