The Scottish Open is one of the most important and beautiful tournaments on the DP World Tour calendar and for yet another year this is clear. Rory McIlroy continues as the leader after signing 67 shots (197 total) and will share a match in the final round again with Tom Kim (198), who remains one shot behind the Northern Irishman after also hitting 67 at The Renaissance Club.
McIlroy missed nine putts of ten feet or less, with which he had a real chance of leaving everyone seen for sentencing.
Scottish Open, results
The battle has been joined by a Tommy Fleetwood who shot 63 (199 overall) and which grows the closer the Ryder gets.
Scottie Scheffler (200), the number 1 in the world, will be in the fight for another Sunday. It is a matter of time before the American adds another victory. Shane Lowry (200) also comes from behind as a shot. The bad news is that if McIlroy pulls out the win or a solo second-place finish he will knock Rahm out of the No.
