A time zone miscommunication caused wake-up issues for the Ulsterman, who ended up taking a ride to the course in a cop car aided by a police escort, arriving with minutes to spare.

“Once I got here today, everything felt good. Just kind of reestablished what I was doing when I got here, those drills I was trying to correct,” said Koepka, who was 2 over when play was halted Saturday.

McIlroy endured a wild finish to his round with two bogeys at Nos. 13 and 14 sandwiched between a pair of birdies at the 12th and 15th holes on his way to a 68. The Northern Irishman is tied with Xander Schauffele at 14 under.

“I let a couple sort of get away from me on 13 and 14, but then to get those shots back on 15 and 18 was nice,” McIlroy said. “Still a lot of golf left.”

Justin Thomas, the FedExCup points leader who began the week at 10 under par, struggled to a 71 and was tied for fourth place with Paul Casey (68).

The fourth round is scheduled to begin at 11:50 a.m. ET with players teeing off the first tee in twosomes.
