Rory McIlroy, Matt Kuchar and Webb Simpson share the lead as the Canadian Open heads into the final round on Sunday.
McIlroy shot up the leaderboard with a sizzling six under 64 around Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ontario, enough to take him to 13 under for the tournament, one shot ahead of the chasing pack.
Local hopeful Adam Hadwin, Brandt Snedeker and Shane Lowry are a shot behind, while 2016 Open Championship winner Henrik Stenson is alone on ten under.
McIlroy was consistent on Saturday, carding three birdies going out and another three coming home for his first bogey-free round since The Players in March, which he went on to win.

“It’s probably the best atmosphere I’ve played in a long time,” the Northern Irishman told pgatour.com.
“I think what they’ve been able to do here is like right on the limit of fun but still in keeping with the traditions of the game, so I think it’s been awesome. I’ve really enjoyed my time here.
“I seem to get pretty good support most places I go, but for whatever reason here I think there are a lot people with Irish roots who seem to be very vocal out there. It’s great to see. I’m really enjoying myself out there.”
