Rory McIlroy is left frustrated as a disappointing front nine in his third round leaves him 12 shots off the lead at The Open at Royal Troon.
The world number four posted a two-over-par 73 to lie level par for the tournament, 12 shots behind leader Henrik Stenson.
"It was a tough day - I just wish I had got off to a better start which would have given me a wee bit of a cushion for the back nine," said McIlroy.
