Rory McIlroy has arguably his best chance to end a seven-year wait for a fifth major title when he begins his final round of the 121st US Open on Sunday night at Torrey Pines.
The Northern Irishman enjoyed a four-under 67 in the third round to move to three under for the tournament, two shots behind overnight leaders Louis Oosthuizen, Russell Henley and Mackenzie Hughes, who tee off their respective final 18 holes on minus five in San Diego.

McIlroy – who won the US Open, two US PGA titles and the Open Championship between 2011 and 2014 – plays alongside three-times PGA Tour winner Henley in the penultimate group at 12.44pm (8.44pm BST) with Oosthuizen and Hughes out in the final group at 12.55pm (8.55pm BST).

“I mean, I'm trying to think of the last time where I really felt like I had a chance,” said McIlroy.
“(The Open) at Carnoustie in '18 felt like I maybe had half a chance, going into the final day at (the US Open) Pebble in 2019. But apart from that, there's been some good finishes but never felt like I was in the thick of things.”
Pre-tournament favourite Jon Rahm finds himself at two under after a 72 on Saturday and plays alongside Matthew Wolff at 12.22pm (8.22pm).
Defending champion Bryson DeChambeau starts his day two shots off the pace at three under alongside Scottie Scheffler (-2) at 12.33pm (8.33pm).
World number one Dustin Johnson, the 2016 US Open champion, is at one under for the tournament with last year's US PGA champion Collin Morikawa also four strokes off the summit.
They start out at 12.11pm (8.11pm BST) in the chase for a top prize of $2,250,000 (£1,629,372).
With 20 players starting Sunday within five shots of the lead, a two-hole play-off may be needed to decide the winner after Sunday's final round on the South Course at Torrey.
