ATLANTA---Rory McIlroy made up a two-shot
deficit on Billy Horschel at the Tour Championship
yesterday, setting up a $10 million showdown to
end the PGA Tour season.
McIlroy overcame a pair of three-putt bogeys by
rolling in a 25-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole, and
closing with a tough chip from thick grass behind
the 18th green that allowed him to save par for a 3-
Horschel led by as many as three shots during the
third round at East Lake until he dropped two shots
on the back nine and had to settle for a 69.
They were at 9-under 201. And they had plenty
of company in what was shaping up as one of the
most enticing finishes in the eight-year history of
the FedEx Cup.
Jim Furyk, winless since he captured the FedEx
Cup four years ago, had a 67 and was two shots
behind. He would have to win to have any chance
of joining Tiger Woods as the only multiple winners
of golf s biggest bonus.
Rickie Fowler (67), Justin Rose (66) and Jason Day
(70) were three shots behind.
"It s going to be an exciting day," Horschel said
after posting his 11th consecutive round in the 60s
during the FedEx Cup playoffs.
McIlroy has been losing a little energy since that
high-charged performance that carried him to major
titles in the British Open and PGA Championship,
with a World Golf Championship sandwiched in
between. He knows he s already had the best year,
and he would like nothing better than to end it right.
"I ve come here with the ultimate goal of trying
to cap it off and trying to put an exclamation point
on it or the icing on the cake or whatever you want
to call it," McIlroy said. "Would it be poetic justice?
I d feel really good about it."
McIlroy says he hasn t been playing his best, cer-
tainly not at the same level as Hoylake or Valhalla,
where he won his two majors. But he was good
enough. He three-putted the par-3 second hole,
missing a 3-foot putt. He had to make a
4-footer to avoid his third four-putt in two
But all was forgotten when he drilled a
5-iron from 209 yards up the hill on the
par-5 13th to the back collar of the green,
just over 25 feet from the flag. He knocked
that in for a share of the lead, and then
hung on with pars.
Horschel, coming off a runner-up finish
at the TPC Boston and a victory last week
at Cherry Hills, stretched his lead to three
shots with a 6-foot birdie putt on No 8 and
matching two-putt birdies with McIlroy at
Both players made bogey on No 10, and
McIlroy appeared to be in more trouble at
the par-3 11th until the world s No. 1 player
chipped to 8 feet and saved par, and Horschel
missed his 15-foot birdie attempt.
"My short game really saved me today,"
McIlroy said. "I think the par putt on 11
was a big momentum putt in the round
after three-putting 10 and Billy being in
there pretty close and just narrowly missing
for birdie. I think being able to hole that
par putt was big."
The top five seeds at the Tour Champi-
onship --- Horschel is No 2, McIlroy is No
4 --- only have to win the Tour Champi-
onship to capture the FedEx Cup. This is
the first time that two top-five seeds are
in the final group of the final tournament
of the year.
Furyk doesn t need to do the math. He
only knows he has to win, and that was his
priority after another year of close calls.
Fowler (No 9) and Day (No 10) are in the
same boat. (AP)

HOFFMAN ESTATES---Americans Bob and Mike
Bryan capped a remarkable week with another
celebratory chest bump yesterday.
Six days after winning the US Open for their
100th career tournament title, the world s top-
ranked doubles team rolled to an easy three-set
victory that clinched the United States Davis Cup
meeting against Slovakia.
Controlling the net with their quick hands and
short-angled volleys, the Bryans broke serve seven
times and routed Norbert Gombos and Lukas Lacko
6-1, 6-2, 6-1 in just 76 minutes.
Michal Mertinak, the highest-ranked Slovakian
doubles player at No. 88, had been scheduled to
play with Lacko. But he was replaced by Gombos,
who lost the opening singles match to Isner.
Slovakia captain Miloslav Mecir said Mertinak
was ill and unable to go.
"He was getting better but he was still struggling,"
Gombos and Lacko are primarily singles players.
Gombos is ranked 688th in doubles and Lacko
"It s tough when you don t play doubles," Lacko
said. "So you are a little bit lost there, yeah, when
you re playing the best double pair in the world."
There are still two reverse singles matches to be
played Sunday that will have no bearing on the tie.
They will be shortened to best-of-three sets and
US captain Jim Courier said Isner and Querrey will
The Americans have not dropped a set so far in
the competition at the Sears Centre, located 30
miles northwest of Chicago. Courier hopes to use
the performance as a springboard for 2015.
