Rory McIlroy set for final-day shoot-out with Xander Schauffele at Wells Fargo

Written by Amanda

The Northern Irishman had his second straight bogey-free day with a four under par 67 after he shot four birdies to set up a thrilling finish at Quail Hollow in Charlotte on Sunday.

McIlroy said he was pleased with his performance on Saturday and said: “Two straight bogey-free rounds, this is what it must feel like to be Scottie Scheffler.

“I think I’ve held out pretty well for the most part inside six feet, and then I think because I know this golf course so well, I’ve missed it in the right spots when I have missed the green.

“To play two rounds in a row on this golf course in these conditions bogey free is a bit of a feather in my cap, I’m pretty proud of that.”

Schauffele had his worst day of the tournament so far, carding a one under par 70 with two birdies and a bogey.

He sits at 12 under par, with South Korea’s Sungjae Im four shots behind in third.
