Rory McIlroy remains top of the leaderboard at the Genesis Scottish Open after a third-round 67 left him one shot ahead of Tom Kim on 13 under, and two in front of England’s Tommy Fleetwood. 

On Friday, McIlroy added a 66 to his opening 64 at the Renaissance Club. It is the fifth time in his PGA Tour career – the event is co-sanctioned with the DP World Tour – that McIlroy started a tournament with two scores of 66 or better.

The world No 3 has a runners-up finish and three wins from those previous four occasions, the most recent being his 2014 Open triumph at Royal Liverpool – the venue for the final major of the year next week.

Fleetwood enjoyed a superb round of 63 on Saturday, moving him 26 places up the leaderboard and bang in contention heading into Sunday’s final round.
