Rory McIlroy surged back into contention at the Dubai Desert Classic with a remarkable nine-under-par 63, narrowing the gap on leader Cameron Young to just two strokes heading into the final round.

 

Defending champion McIlroy had been trailing Young by 10 shots at the midway point, but a spectacular performance, including seven birdies and an eagle to finish, brought him to a 12-under total. Expressing his love for the event, McIlroy aims to secure another victory and potentially become the first four-time winner of the Dubai Desert Classic.

 

Despite his earlier dominance, American Cameron Young faced challenges in the third round, double-bogeying on the seventh and dropping another shot on the eighth. However, he managed to recover with birdies on the eleventh and thirteenth holes, finishing the round at par and maintaining the lead with an overall score of 14 under par. Meanwhile, Poland's Adrian Meronk shares the second spot with McIlroy after a solid two-under-par performance in the third round.

As he eyes a potential fourth title, McIlroy reflects on his past achievements in Dubai, considering it a special place that has contributed to his success in various golf events, including the Race To Dubai. With an impressive track record in the region, McIlroy is poised for a thrilling final round as he pursues another milestone in his illustrious career.
