McIlroy targeting fast start
Rory McIlroy is hoping to make a fast start on the final day of the WGC-Mexico Championship as he looks to catch Dustin Johnson.
The Northern Irishman sits second after he mixed seven birdies with four bogeys to card 68 on Saturday.
He is four strokes adrift of leader Johnson, who built on a two-shot lead at the halfway stage, although he could have been further clear.
Johnson was six ahead midway through day three but the two-time champion had to settle for a double bogey on the 10th after twice hitting the trees.
McIlroy is targeting a fast start on Sunday at the Chapultepec Golf Club as he looks to put his American rival under pressure.
"It's there to attack for sure," said McIlroy. "Obviously four shots behind DJ is going to be a tall order to overcome but I was happy with how I played the last ten holes.
"I need to get off to a better start tomorrow than I did today and if I can do that hopefully I'll be right back in the tournament."
Sergio Garcia, Patrick Cantlay, Cameron Smith and Patrick Reed sit in a tie for third on nine under, while Ian Poulter and Kiradech Aphibarnrat are one shot further back.
