ANTALYA, Turkey – Rory McIlroy shot a third straight 5-under 67 Saturday to move to within one stroke of the leaders after the third round of the Turkish Airlines Open.

Jaco van Zyl of South Africa maintained a share of the lead after a 70 to sit tied with Victor Dubuisson (67) on 16-under 200.

McIlroy dropped his first shots of the tournament with bogeys on Nos. 3 and 10 but also had five birdies and an eagle on the 13th.

“I feel if I play the same way and execute a little bit better, there’s definitely a lower score out there for me,” the four-time Major winner said.

Thailand’s Kiradech Aphibarnrat (66) shared third place with McIlroy.
