McIlroy, Horschel tied for Tour Championship lead
ATLANTA (AP) Rory McIlroy made up a two-shot deficit on Billy Horschel on Saturday in the Tour Championship. They square off again Sunday with $10 million riding on the outcome.
McIlroy atoned for a pair of three-putt bogeys by rolling in a 25-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole. He closed with a superb par save from thick grass behind the 18th green for a 3-under 67.
Horschel led by as many as three shots during the third round until he started missing fairways and made two bogeys. He had a 69.
They were at 9-under 201.
Jim Furyk, still with a chance to win the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus, had a 67 and was two shots back. Rickie Fowler (67) and Justin Rose (66) were three behind.
