Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele will be the last golfers on the course on Sunday at the PGA Championship after turning in excellent third rounds on Saturday. Steele carded a 4-under 66, one of the best rounds of the day, to push his score to 7-under, coming from behind to nab a share of the lead. Dufner, playing in Saturday's final pairing, recorded birdies on Nos. 15 and 16 to card a third-round 68 to get to 7-under for the tournament, as well.
Keegan Bradley is in hot pursuit of the leaders after carding a 1-under 69 while playing alongside Dufner. Bradley is at 6-under for the tournament and one-shot back of the lead heading into the final round. Scott Verplank finished his round with a flourish on Saturday, pushing his score to 5-under for the tournament, good for fourth-place.
Steve Stricker is alone in fifth at 4-under after a third-round 69. Jim Furyk stepped to 18 in contention and at 3-under for the tournament, only to see two balls go in the water before he finally escaped his round with a double-bogey, dropping his score to 3-over for the day and 1-under for the tournament. Phil Mickelson is at even-par for the tournament after a round of 69.
The field gets back at it on Sunday morning for the final 18 holes of the 2011 PGA Championship at Atlanta Athletic Club.
