Rory McIlroy moved into a three-way tie for the lead after a sparkling third round at the RBC Canadian Open.

Northern Irishman McIlroy carded a six-under 64 to charge up the leaderboard and sit alongside American duo Matt Kuchar and Webb Simpson on 13 under.

A birdie at the first set the tone for McIlroy, who made two more gains before the turn and a further three on the back nine.

Kuchar, who hit 63 on Friday, could only manage a one-under 69, bogeying the 15th to lose the outright lead.

Simpson carded 67 and has now played 54 holes without making a single bogey.

Irishman Shane Lowry, American Brandt Snedeker and home hope Adam Hadwin are a shot behind on 12 under.
