Harig: Rory McIlroy surges at Quail Hollow
ESPN 68+ SHARES
The similarities are eerie, and Rory McIlroy certainly wouldn't mind if the same storyline played out on Sunday at Quail Hollow.
After making the cut on the number Friday, McIlroy found his form early Saturday morning in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship, shooting 7-under-par 65 to vault up the leaderboard and give himself a Sunday shot at victory.
Obviously you're still trying to make birdies but at the same time trying to limit the mistakes.
McIlroy seemed to figure it out during Thursday's 69 but he took 31 putts during the second round and headed to the practice green afterward.
"If I'm still within 4 or 5 five shots going into tomorrow, I think I'll have a chance," he said.
