Woodland began the day three clear but saw his lead reduced to two when McIlroy chipped to tap-in range at the third, before the pair exchanged two-putt birdies at the par-five fifth.

Schauffele briefly moved within one of the lead after following three straight gains from the fifth with a pitch-in eagle from off the ninth green, only for Woodland to get up-and-down from the rough to make a close-range birdie on the par-five.

McIlroy missed a 10-foot birdie chance on the same hole to reach the turn three off the pace, as Woodland kicked off his back nine with a 25-foot birdie and made a 15-footer to save par at the next.

Schauffele holed-out from 107 yards on the 12th fairway for eagle and picked up another shot at the driveable 14th to join Woodland on 20 under, before adding a close-range gain at the next to take the outright lead.
