Rory McIlroy and his wife Erica are expecting a daughter
Rory McIlroy says he is "just waiting for a phone call" while he waits for the birth of his first child with wife Erica Stoll.
"I'm going to play in many more Tour championships, and it will only ever be the birth of your first child," said Northern Irishman, 31.
& # 39; That trumps everything else. & # 39;
The world's first number one added: "I waited last week on a phone call and it didn't come, and then [McIlroy’s caddy] Harry (Diamond) kept his phone in his pocket to make sure, but nothing yet. "
After headed for the third round as the joint leader with one shot, McIlroy struggled with the toug h Olympia Fields- Saturday course, picking up five bogeys and two birdies to end the day with a 73-over-par 73.
That brought him to two for the tournament, three back from joint leaders Dustin Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama, and tied for sixth place.
