The Holywood man lies tied for fourth in the competition after a third round three under par.

The current world number 10 finished Saturday seven shots off leader Thomas Bjorn.

Heavy rain overnight and in the morning had left parts of the West Course at Wentworth under water and pushed back starting times by three hours in the European Tour's flagship event.

However, McIlroy opened with a double bogey six on the opening hole.

Despite the early blunder, McIlroy recovered with birdies at the fourth, seventh, 11th and 12th to briefly get within two shots of the lead.

But a storming performance from Danish man Bjorn saw him finish the day on 15 under.

McIlroy tees-off for the final round just before 1pm on Sunday.
