PGA Championship Round 3 live updates, leaderboard: Xander Schaffel leads on action-packed day

It’s moving day in Valhalla.

Xander Schauffele led the field by one stroke at the PGA Championship on Saturday. He has led the entire course so far, a feat pulled by only five other golfers in the last 40 years.

Behind him is a throng of golfers ready to jump into Louisville. Colin Morikawa was a shot back to start the day, but he quickly matched Schaffele at 12-under. Schauffele then took the lead, but just barely.

Sahid Thikala made it to the final group. Scottie Scheffler, despite his arrest, shot a 66 on Friday and was T4 to start the third round. Bryson DeChambeau was right with him. Let’s go. The leaderboard is completely full.

However, Tiger Woods is not in that jam. He fell to 7-over after a rough start on Friday and was one of those who missed the cut. The good news is that the weather is looking good after a long day of rain on Friday.

No matter how it shakes out, moving day is sure to be quite the event.

    Oops!

    After going 4-over through his first four holes, Scheffler birdied two of his last three. But that last one didn’t come without drama. It’s not a long putt – about 6 feet. Pretty typical. He didn’t hit a good putt, but managed to catch the left lip and it went down.

    He got it back to 7-under.

  • Shane Lowry continues his heater

    A long roll for Shane Lowry for birdie at 13 put him at 11-under, one back of the lead. After shooting a 6-under 29 on the front, he cooled off a bit. At the age of 13, the bird landed on his back. Still, his round of 6-under 62 was out of the question.
