Mcilroy makes charge in Singapore
World number one Rory McIlroy made a late charge up the leaderboard but still trailed Denmark's Thomas Bjorn by five shots after a marathon day three at the Barclays Singapore Open on Saturday.
McIlroy raced into contention with two birdies and an eagle -- offset by a watery double-bogey -- in the first nine holes of his third round before nightfall halted play in the storm-hit tournament. The third round only started at 4:00 pm (0800 GMT) after weather interruptions over the first two days meant most of Saturday was taken up with completing the second round at par-71 Sentosa Golf Club.
Bjorn, 41, was top of the leaderboard at nine under par for the tournament after a 67 in his second round, which gave him a great chance of his first win of the year. England's Chris Wood was a shot back at eight under par, with South African George Coetzee two adrift at seven-under after a brilliant 63 in round two.
