Rory chasing Jon Rahm in Players Championship

Rahm climbed up nine places to finish Saturday a stroke clear at the top of the leader board on 15 under, which included an eagle on the 11th - and could have been better but for an earlier bogey at the sixth at  Players Championship. McIlroy, meanwhile, signed for a 70 after a slow start saw him drop shots on the opening two holes. He also found the water at the 16th but recovered to save par. Hope he can gain with one shot because there are veterans like tiger woods playing with him. He will come strong in the final round and hoping to end with a victory. Rory and Fleetwood are chasing Jon for the top position. Rory has to put all his effort into better performance and take lead in the Championships.
