Rory McIlroy isn't going away. The Northern Ireland native began the day four strokes back of the leaders at The Open. He's currently tied for the lead.

McIlroy, a four-time major champion, won The Open in 2014. It's been four years since he won a major championship, last winning the PGA Championship in 2014. That might be changing today.

The four-time major champion is now tied for the lead. He just had an eagle to get himself to 6-under par, where a couple of golfers currently sit at.

There are now five players at 6-under par, including Rory.

Rory has had a tough couple of years on the course, as he hasn't won a major in four years. He's still been one of the best players in the world, but not quite as elite as he had been. That could change in a big way today. McIlroy has certainly been doing well off of the course. He got married last year to his longtime girlfriend, Erica Stoll. The couple was recently spotted together at Wimbledon.

Rory and Eric could be seen celebrating together on hole No. 18 depending on how the rest of this round goes. McIlroy is searching to win his first major championship since 2014. He's likely going to need a couple of more birdies to make it happen.

The final round of The Open is being televised on NBC. McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods, among others, are all in contention. This is going to be a very fun couple of final holes.
