Rory McIlroy made two par saves on a windy back nine and finished with a birdie from the bunker for a 4-under 66, giving him a two-shot lead over Harris English and Tom Gillis in the Honda Classic on Saturday.
McIlroy was one round away from becoming No. 1 in the world for the first time. He had a chance to get to No. 1 a week ago in the final of the Match Play Championship. This time, there is more than one player to face in the final round at PGA National. Five players were within four shots.
English, a 22-year-old rookie, had a 66 and will be in the final group with McIlroy, a rare time when the U.S. Open champion will be playing with someone his own age.
Tiger Woods shot 69 and was nine shots behind.
