Rory McIlroy and Tommy Fleetwood trail leader Jon Rahm by one shot going into the final round of the Players Championship at Sawgrass.

Northern Ireland’s McIlroy and England’s Fleetwood both recovered from poor starts to their third rounds to shoot two-under-par 70s.

Spaniard Rahm had four birdies and an eagle on the back nine in his 64.

Jason Day (68) is 12 under, Abraham Ancer (70) 11 under and world number one Dustin Johnson (69) 10 under.

Johnson is joined on 10 under by fellow Americans Ollie Schniederjans (65), Brandt Snedeker (65), Keegan Bradley (68), Brian Harman (71) and Jim Furyk (71).

McIlroy is seeking his first tournament victory in more than a year, while Fleetwood is yet to win in the United States.
