Rory McIlroy four-stroke lead at the end of the third round of the U.S. Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia.

In the third round, McIlroy noted blows two under par, 70, thus keeping score 12 below par.

"I'm in a good position. I remained patient and I am happy to stay abreast of my game strategy," said McIlroy.

McIlroy has an opportunity to become the second youngest Masters champion after Tiger Woods, who became champion at the age of 21 years, three months and four days when the U.S. won the Masters for the first time in 1997.

With one round remaining, McIlroy four strokes ahead of Angel Cabrera, KJ Choi, Charl Schwartzel and Jason Day.

They were followed by Luke Donald and Adam Scott who both scored a total of seven strokes under par.

Tiger Woods is four-time Masters champion is still slim chance with a score of five under par, while Phil Mickelson is not likely again with a score of three under par.
