Rory McIlroy believes that the US PGA Championship is his tournament to lose as the world number one closes in on back-to-back major wins.
Victory for the 25-year-old - who won the Open Championship last month - would see him become the first golfer since Padraig Harrington in 2008 to claim successive major titles.
"It's not the biggest lead I've ever had but I am still in control of this tournament and it's still a good position to be in," he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.
"I just knew I needed to make a couple [of birdies] coming down the back nine to keep the lead or at least be tied. The two birdies on 15 and 16 were huge.
"It's where I want to be, it's the best place to be in a tournament. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else."
