LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Rory McIlroy made an 8-foot birdie putt at the 18th hole to maintain a one-shot lead at the PGA Championship.

Going for back-to-back major wins, McIlroy birdied three of the last four holes Saturday for a 4-under 67. His three-day total is 13-under 200.

The 25-year-old from Northern Ireland will play in the final group at Valhalla with the most surprising player in the field -- Austria's Bernd Wiesberger. The European Tour regular matched the best round of the week with a 65, leaving him a stroke back.

Rickie Fowler is right in the thick of things again, shooting 67 and two shots off the pace. He'll play in the next-to-last group with Phil Mickelson, who birdied four of the last five holes. He was three shots back with Jason Day.
