The third round of the 2011 PGA Championship is in the books and the top of the leaderboard may look unfamiliar to most casual fans. Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods are nowhere to be seen -- the latter of which didn't make the cut -- and the rest of the players atop the leaderboard are far from household names. Atlanta Athletic Club has turned a field of elite professional golfers upside-down, chewing them up and spitting them out.
Brendan Steele and Jason Dufner lead at 7-under, followed closely by Keegan Bradley, who sits one shot back at 6-under for the tournament. Looking further down the leaderboard, Masters champion Charl Schwartzel and Adam Scott are among a group at 2-under, tied for eighth place.
To find a few of the more recognizable names, one has to look at the group at 1-under through 54 holes. Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Jim Furyk, who had a disastrous 18th hole, are each six shots off the pace with just 18 holes to go. Mickelson is at even-par for the tournament, in a tie for 20th on the leaderboard. From where they are now, it's going to take a hard charge on Sunday coupled with the leaders faltering for either to have a shot at the PGA Championship.
Here's a look at the top-8 and ties, courtesy of the PGA Tour.
