Rory McIlroy takes the clubhouse lead on three-under-par at the US PGA Championship at Oak Hill.

Defending champion Rory McIlroy has played himself back into contention for the US PGA Championship with a superb 67 in the third round at Oak Hill.

The Northern Irishman finished with two birdies to take the clubhouse lead on three-under-par, which is just four shots off the current leader Jason Dufner.

A bogey-free front nine saw him hit the turn in one-under-par, but a bogey at the 10th dropped him back to even for the day.

He took advantage of the iconic par-five 13th to get himself back into red numbers, before a long putt at 17 and a chip in from the rough at 18.
