Rory McIlroy at the PGA Championship



Playing alongside MacIntyre, Ben Griffin drains a long birdie putt at the par 3 16th to move into share of second spot! He is two back of MacIntyre, who produces an excellent two putt for par.

Macintyre fires back!

Just moments after a birdie from Perez, MacIntyre fires back with a pivotal birdie of his own at the par 4 15th! He now leads by two shots with three remaining, with one of those holes being a reachable par 5…


That could be huge from Perez! After a delightful approach at the 18th, the Frenchman holes his birdie attempt to not only move into solo second, but also within one of MacIntyre.

Showing serious emotion, it now means MacIntyre will need to par in to claim victory here in Canada. He has found the fairway at the 15th hole and has stuck his approach in tight for a possible birdie, but he and Ben Griffin have been told to speed up, with the pair around two holes behind.

He still leads by two, but Perez has played a great shot in at the 18th and will have a good chance at birdie to close the gap.

McIlroy and Kim close with a 64

A closing par gives McIlroy a blemish free final round of 64 to put himself 13-under-par for the tournament.

Along with Rory, Tom Kim also fires a 64, with both men finishing at 13-under and currently in a tie for second.
