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.
