Rory McIlroy is just two shots off the joint leaders heading into the final round at the Tour Championship.
The World No 3 carded a 66 in his third round to put himself on 6-under.
That is just two behind US pair Dustin Johnson and Kevin Chappell who are both on 8-under heading into the fourth and final round.
McIlroy, who managed his first bogey-free round of the tournament, is in a tie for third with Ryan Moore also on 6-under.

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama is just behind them on 5-under in fifth.
If McIlroy wants to claim the season-ending FedEx Cup series he will have to overtake Johnson.
