On another sure and steady day at defanged Congressional,
McIlroy shot 3-under 68 to finish the day at 14-under 199, breaking
by one stroke Jim Furyk's record, set in 2003, for the best score
after 54 holes.
McIlroy leads Y.E. Yang (70) by eight and Lee Westwood (65),
Jason Day (65) and Robert Garrigus (68) by nine.
The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland will sleep on the lead
heading into the final day of a major for the second straight time.
But this lead is double the size of the one he had at the Masters
two months ago, when he blew up on the back nine, shot 80 and
finished 15th.
