Rory McIlroy shot an 11-under 61 on Saturday to break the Quail Hollow record and take the third-round lead in the Wells Fargo Championship.
McIlroy set the previous record of 62 in his 2010 victory, and Brendon de Jonge matched it last year.
Needing to birdie the final two holes for a 59, the top-ranked McIlroy closed with two pars.
McIlroy started the day three shots behind Webb Simpson and Robert Streb, and had five birdies in a front-nine 31. He didn't let up on the back, birdieing six of the first seven holes.
In all, he had nine birdies during a 10-hole stretch.
“I feel like it's one of these courses I can get on a roll with,” McIlroy said.
