PGA Championship 2011: Brendan Steele, Jason Dufner Tied Atop Leaderboard

The unlikeliest of golfers sit atop the PGA Championship leaderboard midway through Saturday's third round, but in a week that's seen Tiger Woods miss the cut and many of the other contenders falter, it should come at no surprise. Brendan Steele and Jason Dufner are two shots clear of the field during Saturday's round, sharing the lead at 7-under for the tournament. Steele is through 12 holes while Dufner, playing in the final group, is through 10.

Jim Furyk is climbing the leaderboard, currently in a tie for third at 5-under for the tournament. He's joined in third-place by Keegan Bradley, who opened his day with a double-bogey after sharing the lead through 36 holes. The two are one-shot clear of Steve Stricker, who sits alone in fifth place.

Looking further down the leaderboard, Phil Mickelson is 1-under for the day and even-par for the tournament, good for a share of 21st place. Lee Westwood and Luke Donald are each at 1-under for the tournament and in a tie for 15th. Tiger Woods is at home.
