The 25-year-old American followed an opening round of 66 with a score of 65 on Friday as he was trying to win his first major title. He will be paired with Mito Pereira in the final set, who has never cut in a major tournament. There is a crowded field behind them that includes Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy. The Northern Irish failed to build on his impressive start and picked up a single card over 71 yesterday and is now sitting five shots off the lead.

Tiger Woods once again showed extraordinary mettle to avoid a cut after Round 69, although his hopes for a big 16th victory are now dashed with his third-round score of 79. There are many notable names who failed to make that cut, Despite this, including No. 1 World Champion and Masters Scottie Scheffler, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Cantlay. “Definitely disappointed,” Scheffler said. “I am disappointed too. It is never fun to lose any pieces. I want to be able to play the weekend and try to get rid of it as hard as I can. I just haven’t had this week.”

PGA Championship – Birdie for Pereira

Pereira exchanges places with his partner in the game! It drains a long space per second to go to -9.

There we go. The opening bird of Tyrell Hutton makes the Englishman -3. Both Hatton and Fitzpartek, who will run in the next race, are well positioned to direct today’s charge.

Both players, however, have been highly critical of the Greens at Southern Hills so far this week.

It’s been a tough day for Tiger Woods, but he still clapped for 18th as if he was leading the PGA Championship.

Instead, at +12, he’s at the bottom of the leaderboard among those players who have made the weekend.

Woods has five feet left to avoid hitting 80 – and he runs it – but having hit 69 to cut yesterday’s 79 today is a realistic result.

exceptional! Kramer Hickok just hid from the basement. But the only problem was with his third attempt to get out. After his first two attempts to hit the bank – then veer back to hit him – he lifts it out and spins into the hole!
