    导出博客文章Rory McIlroy says all his hard work off the course is now starting to pay off on
    the course after he opened up a three-shot lead following the third round of the
    WGC-Cadillac Championship. The Northern Irishman, using his new crosshanded
    putting method, carded a flawless four-under 68 to move to 12-under 204 ahead of
    Sundays final round.However, he will need to maintain his solid form at Doral as
    he has some big names on his tail with Dustin Johnson and Adam Scott leading the
    chasing pack on nine under and Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and Danny Willett
    two shots further back. Im pretty sure thats my first bogey-free round of the
    year. To do it in a round like this is very pleasing, said McIlroy after signing
    his card on Saturday. Rory McIlroy runs us through his third round at the
    WGC-Cadillac Championship Ive been saying all week that Ive been making the
    birdies and Ive been hitting the good shots. Ive just been making too many
    mistakes. So to play the last 36 holes on a golf course like this with just one
    bogey on the card is really what I wanted to achieve this week. I feel really
    good about my game.My ball-striking, my driving, that really hasnt been an issue
    this year. Thats been where I wanted it to be. But my scrambling and my putting
    have needed work. Highlights from Saturdays third round at Doral, with McIlroy
    taking a three-shot lead over Dustin Johnson I feel like the practice that Ive
    put in over the last few weeks is really starting to pay off. Just look at some
    of the saves I had out there today and some of the big par putts - those were
    the things that were missing over the past three or four tournaments.And to be
    able to correct that and go out and play in a final group on a Saturday in a
    golf tournament like this on a golf course like this, and play bogey-free, it
    gives me a lot of confidence going forward. McIlroy strides towards the 18th
    green at Doral Theres not many positives from a missed cut [at the Honda
    Classic] but I made nine birdies over the first two days on a tough golf course
    in tough conditions. I knew the good stuff was in there. It was just about
    trying to eradicate the bad stuff, the loose shots, the mental errors, the
    mistakes.I didnt feel like there was much of a disappointment after last week.
    To be honest, to miss a cut and be able to sleep in your own bed, its not too
    bad. Gave me a couple extra days to practice, and maybe if I didnt have those
    couple of extra days, I wouldnt have found something in my game that I really
    liked to go forward with. Theres always a silver lining.Watch the final round of

    Miikka Kiprusoff had just announced his retirement after a decade-long run in
    Calgary and it would be up to Berra and Ramo to fill the void. It has been a
    pretty good week for French horseback riders. In Rio de Janeiro, Astier Nicolas,
    Thibaut Vallette, Mathieu Lemoine, and Karim Florent Laghouag collected Olympic
    gold medals in the team competition of three-day eventing, while Nicolas added a
    silver medal in the individual event category.Meanwhile, in the Chicago suburb
    of Arlington Heights, a mini-Olympics of sorts will convene on Saturday at
    Arlington Park, where the 34th running of the Arlington Million tops a juicy
    10-race program. French is very much on the menu.Hot-handed Florent Geroux (from
    Argentan, in Normandy), Flavien Prat (from Melun, 70 miles east of Paris), and
    veteran Brice Blanc (from Lyon) each have mounts in the $700,000 Beverly D. at
    1-3/16 miles on turf. Advantage Geroux in this one aboard Sea Calisi for Chad
    Brown and Martin Schwartz, although Pretty Girl and Blanc deserve more than a
    glance, trained as she is by Mikel Delzangles, who knows how to take his game on
    the road.Prat would be overlooked in the Beverly D. if it wasnt for the outfit
    hell be wearing atop the French filly Marypop, trained by Mike Stidham. She is
    owned by Richard Duchossois, the Arlington Park chairman who first presented the
    Arlington Million in 1981 and then added the Beverly D. seven years later to
    honor the memory of his wife. Any jock who wins this race for the boss gets the
    keys to a couple of cities.Geroux, 30, and Prat, 24, have developed a friendly
    rivalry that transcends the time zones. They communicate often, trash-texting in
    French, and keep close track of how the other guy is doing. This season, the
    answer is theyre doing just fine.Prat leads the Del Mar standings with 20 wins
    through Wednesdays card. His mount earnings of $6.9 million put him 11th in the
    national standings, while Geroux is sailing along in fifth with $9.4 million.(It
    should be mentioned that Julien Leparoux, 33, and the third of the three young
    French musketeers, sits in ninth with $7.5 million and would have been at
    Arlington on Saturday had he not fractured his wrist in a fall at Saratoga last
    Sunday.)In the $450,000 Secretariat, at 1-1/4 miles on grass, Geroux is live
    once again for Brown with Beach Patrol, while Prat rides Arlington Classic
    winner Surgical Strike for trainer Ben Colebrook. Last time out, the two colts
    were third and fifth in the Belmont Derby, separated by half a length.The
    $300,000 American St. Leger, open to all comers at 1-1/16 miles, is led by
    Geroux and Da Big Hoss, the winner of the lengthy Belmont Gold Cup. Prat is
    riding Billabong, a 7-year--old with baffling form that includes his most recent
    race in Qatar, in February, for trainer Pascal Bary.dddddddddddd It was Bary who
    put the 16-year-old Prat on a ton of winners in France as an apprentice,
    however, so perhaps there will be some magic at work for their reunion.Finally,
    it will be no surprise that Geroux is in with a big chance in the Million
    itself. He won the race last year aboard The Pizza Man -- who is back to defend
    under Mike Smith -- but now goes for two straight aboard World Approval for Mark
    Casse. World Approval won the American Derby over the course last year and most
    recently took the United Nations at Monmouth Park.With John Velazquez otherwise
    occupied at Saratoga, Prat has picked up the ride on Man o War Stakes winner
    Wake Forest in the Million. If things turn out well, someone might want to mark
    the day since this will be Prats first ride for Brown.Ive been impressed with
    his riding from afar, particularly on the turf, Brown said. And he was
    available.Which doesnt always happen when a jock is leading a meet. For Brown,
    Prat and agent Derek Lawson were quick to save the date.As of Thursday morning,
    Prat had yet to knuckle down and study the form of Wake Forest, a German-bred
    6-year-old who split the field in last years Million for Andreas Wohler and was
    then sent to Brown. In addition to his win for Brown in the Man o War on very
    firm turf, Wake Forest was second in the Pan American and third in the United
    Nations. Wake Forest is in stall 10 of 13 entered, just inside of World Approval
    and the likely favorite, Godolphin Racings Tryster.The horse is pretty
    straightforward, so I wont tell Flavien too much, Brown said of Wake Forest.
    Just try to work out a good trip from a challenging post.Prat missed a chance to
    make his debut on the big stage last fall at the Breeders Cup while recovering
    from fractured vertebrae. He rode Hoppertunity to a solid third-place finish for
    Bob Baffert in the Dubai World Cup in March, and it appears as if he will be
    riding Dortmund for Baffert against California Chrome and Beholder in next weeks
    Pacific Classic.Its what we are looking for, to ride for the big trainers, Prat
    said. You dont want to feel pressure, no matter who you ride for. But it is
    exciting, and it is an honor to ride for Chad Brown. I hope we do well.Like Rick
    said to Louis Renault in foggy Casablanca, it could be the beginning of a
    beautiful friendship. ' ' '
