McIlroy seven shots behind leader JB Holmes at Wells Fargo Championship

London, May 4: Northern Irish golfer Rory McIlroy has remained seven shots adrift of leader JB Holmes victory at the Wells Fargo Championship with a third-round 65 at Quail Hollow.

The former world No.1, who raised hopes of a repeat of his 2010 victory at the tournament, found his form on day three to move to six under par after making the cut with a shot to spare just like he did four years ago.

According to the BBC, McIlroy, who carded eight birdies and a single bogey to climb through the field, was one shot better than his third round in 2010, when he finished with a course-record 62 on the final day to take victory and he admitted that it would take ‘something special’ for him to repeat the feat four years on.

Meanwhile, the report added that Martin Flores is a shot off the lead, with Phil Mickelson third on 11 under after a 63, and Justin Rose nine under. (ANI)
