England's Luke Donald is poised to lose the number one ranking in world golf.

Heading into the final round Donald is 14 shots off the pace in a share of 51st place at the US PGA Heritage in South Carolina.

Donald is on the verge of handing the top ranking back to Rory McIlroy as he must finish no worse than a share of eighth to stay ahead of the reigning US Open champion.

Sweden's Carl Pettersson leads at 12 under.
