Bogey: Rory McIlroy

One under par and on the first page of the leader board to start Saturday, McIlroy harbored hopes of cutting into Kaymer's lead over the course of the afternoon. Instead, his third-round 74 reaffirmed the notion that fast, firm major layouts confound him. More to the point, it suggested he lacks an ability to grind when fighting his form. McIlroy's front-nine 40 was the sixth nine-hole score of 40 or higher in 2014. -- S.W.
