Rory McIlroy chips in eagle to move into tie at Masters (Video)
Rory McIlroy is in the hunt at the Masters.
McIlroy charged forward on Saturday at Augusta, having come into the day at 4-under-par, five back of Patrick Reed, who led the field through 36 holes. McIlroy erased that deficit within the first eight holes of play on day three, moving into a share of the lead with an eagle on No. 8.

The shot briefly moved McIlroy to 5-under on the day, and into a tie with Patrick Reed at 9-under overall. Perhaps this stat pertaining to Reed’s lead through 36 holes will prove predictive after all.
