McIlroy within one of lead at Valero

We're down to the last handful of holes at TPC San Antonio, and Rory McIlroy is in contention for his first win of the year.

McIlroy is one back of Martin Laird after two birdies in his last three holes to get to 4 under on his round and 10 under overall.

Two shots back are Billy Horschel and Jim Furyk, while K.J. Choi is another stroke back at 8 under.

In four events on the PGA TOUR this season, McIlroy has just one top 10. But that came in a limited field at Doral. Still, he showed signs of progress with a final-round 65 there.

A victory Sunday wouldn't move McIlroy back to No. 1 in the world -- a position he lost to Tiger Woods after Woods' victory at Bay Hill two weeks ago -- but it would be his first since the BMW Championship last season.
