Charlotte: World No 1 Rory McIlroy fired an electrifying 11-under par 61 in the third round to vault into a four-shot lead at the US PGA Tour Wells Fargo Championship. The 26-year-old had 11 birdies with no bogeys to break his own Quail Hollow course record of 62.

"I feel like the best player in the world and I wanted to go out there and prove that," McIlroy said. McIlroy's effort gave him an 18-under total of 198 and a four-shot lead over Webb Simpson who shot a 68 and was alone at a 14-under 202.
