Neither Tiger Woods nor Phil Mickelson was in position to win the PGA Championship entering today's final round. But each has done a bit of work early.
Woods made birdies on his first two holes and three of his first four to move to 5-under overall, and he has more room to make up ground on leader Nick Watney than Mickelson does. Tiger's still eight shots behind Watney, though, and despite being 5-under over his last 12 holes, he'll need a miracle to contend. It would be Woods' first win at a major after being behind through 54 holes.
Mickelson is a bit hotter, but he has further to go. He was just 1-under entering today's round, but an eagle at the fifth hole and two birdies have gotten his final round off to a good start. He's 3-under through seven holes and 4-under for the tournament, and trails Watney by nine strokes. If Tiger needs a miracle, Lefty could use a bigger one.
And both will need a few catastrophic rounds by the leaders to have any realistic hopes of holding the Wanamaker Trophy at day's end.
