All of a sudden, here comes Jason Dufner at the PGA Championship. The man with the weird waggle that closely resembles that of any amateur is on fire on back-nine and has suddenly vaulted up the leaderboard and into a tie for first-place. Dufner walked off the 15th green with a birdie to get to 6-under, then did it again on 16 to push his score to 7-under, tied with Brendan Steele for the lead. Remember: these are the beginning of a difficult four-hole stretch that has eaten golfers alive throughout the day.
Meanwhile on the 18th hole, the CBS announcers are begging golfers to hit the fairway, and none have obliged recently. The leaders are making an absolute mess of the finishing hole at Atlanta Athletic Club, and it hasn't been pretty. Jim Furyk rinsed two of his balls before almost jarring his third shot of the day, and will have a look at double-bogey. As we said earlier, this could be a preview of Sunday, when the winner may be the player who is able to limp away from the final four holes with but a flesh wound.
The third round of the PGA Championship is almost in the books, with Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele currently tied atop the leaderboard.
