The 23-year-old's score left him two strokes behind leader Jeff Maggert.

He had moved to three under at one stage but struggled on the back nine with two bogeys, leaving him tied with Padraig Harrington.

Graeme McDowell meanwhile was nine behind with an opening 75.

The strong performance from McIlroy looks to represent a return to form ahead of his US Open defence next week, after missing his last three cuts.
