McIlroy is aiming to become only the sixth man in history to complete a grand slam of golf majors. If he were to taste victory, it would be his third in succession following a brilliant back-end to his 2014 campaign.
American Jordan Spieth is the current leader, ahead of veteran Ernie Els, with Rose in a tie for second. Charley Hoffman is also on five under after completing all 18 holes.
Paul Casey is the only other British player currently feature in the top ten, with his round of three under enough for a tie of eighth place. Sergio Garcia and Jason Day are the only other non-American players on the first page of the leaderboard as things stand.
