Cheonan:

Rickie Fowler shot an 8-under 63 on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead after the third round of the Korea Open as Rory McIlroy slipped down the field.

Fowler, the 2010 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, started the day in a five-way tie for the lead in a group that included McIlroy and defending champion YE Yang, before moving to a 13-under 200 total for the tournament.

Yang, playing in front of his home crowd, was second after a 67, two strokes ahead of fellow South Korean Kim Meen-whee, who had a 66.

McIlroy struggled around the course to post a 73, leaving the US Open champion 10 shots off the pace.
