McIlroy eyes Sunday Masters charge


Rory McIlroy will go on the attack in his final round at the Masters as he looks to recover from a disappointing Saturday at Augusta.

The four-time major winner is looking to complete a career Grand Slam this week and was in contention prior to his third round, but slipped to five shots off leader Jordan Spieth.

His 77 included three bogeys and a double bogey at the 11th, while there were no birdies whatsoever - the first time McIlroy has failed to record one at a major since 2010.

Despite dropping back, the Northern Irishman still believes he can claim the green jacket on Sunday, but knows he needs to be play positively.

"I just need to go out there and be aggressive, I've got nothing to lose," said the world number three.

"Today [Saturday] was my bad day and hopefully I can go out there and make up for the lack of birdies today and make double the amount tomorrow [Sunday].

"I'm only five off the lead. Even though I can't take many positives from today, I have to stay positive that I am only five back and I know what can happen on this golf course on the Sunday, everyone does.

"I think anyone within five or six of the lead feels like they still have a good shot.

"Everyone knows where the pins are going to be on the back nine on Sunday here. We all know what they are and feel like you can get it going and get some momentum on the front nine and who knows what could happen on the back."
