Rory McIlroy: Made a superb start to his third round

Rory McIlroy was content with his day's work despite only playing nine holes of his third round in the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island.

The world No 3 was two shots off the pace at the halfway stage but he stormed to the top of the leaderboard with birdies at five of the first eight holes.

A bogey at the ninth - just before bad weather halted play for the day - checked his charge but he still shares the lead on six under with Fijian veteran Vijay Singh.

McIlroy said: "The only thing we were talking about was why didn't they put us off a bit earlier.

"But you've just got to take what you are given and make the best of it.

"I don't mind 27 on Sunday. I'm happy with where I am. I'm in a great position.

"I made the start I was looking to get off to. Some of the pins were a bit easier - they moved some tees up a bit and the wind was not as strong."
