Rory McIlroy, like Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth, is very much in contention during the final round of the 2018 British Open. He began the day four strokes back of the leaders, looking to add his fifth major championship.

McIlroy is currently two holes into his final round. He parred the first hole and bogeyed the second hole. McIlroy will need a big final round to get to the top of the leaderboard.

The wife of McIlroy is likely at the tournament, supporting him. We'll probably get some crowd shots if Rory is still in contention at the end of the round.

They have tried in the past to keep things very low key when it comes to being in the public eye.

“Erica has been around me quite a lot at tournaments but we have really just tried to keep it low key,” McIlroy told The Independent. “She is a very low key person, not the kind to broadcast stuff, but that side of my life is really good just now. We are excited, our parents are excited so it is a really happy time.”

Erica did caddie for Rory during The Masters' Par 3 tournament earlier this year. It was pretty cute.

You can watch Rory compete for another major championship on NBC. His final round is underway.
