England’s Matt Fitzpatrick and world number one Scottie Scheffler of the USA share the lead going into the final round of the BMW Championship.

They lead Open champion Brian Harman by a shot at Olympia Fields Illinois.

Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy is three strokes off the joint leaders after a third-round 67.

Half-way leader Max Homa, who shot a course-record 62 in round two that was matched by colleague Sam Burns on Saturday, remains in touch despite a 71 that included a triple-bogey seven on the seventh.

The tournament field includes the top 50 in the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup rankings, with the top 30 qualifying for next week’s Tour Championship Finals in Atlanta.
