Rory McIlroy will face Tiger Woods in the final group for the first time ever on Sunday as the pair sit first and second at the Tour Championship.

McIlroy, however, will start the final day in Atlanta three shots behind his childhood idol as 14-time major winner Woods leads the tournament on 12 under par.

Four-time major winner McIlroy posted a third consecutive round in the 60s as he posted an impressive four-under 66 and starts the final day on nine under par.

McIlroy played near-flawless golf all afternoon, posting five birdies with just the one dropped shot on the seventh hole.

Justin Rose kept himself in contention after recovering from bogeys at the first two holes to post a two-under-par round of 68. He's alongside McIlroy on nine-under.

The American Kyle Stanley and Spain's Jon Rahm were tied for fourth on six under with Paul Casey, Billy Horschel and Tony Finau a shot further back. 

Woods, however, stole the show on Moving Day and hit a blistering front nine, opening with six birdies over the first seven holes, before dropping a shot at the turn.

A no-nonsense back nine saw Woods hit seven pars with just one birdie and one bogey en route to a superb 65.

"There are some good guys behind me chasing, guys who have been playing well, and I've got my work cut out," he told Sky Sports.

"This whole season has been pretty remarkable considering where I have come from."
