2012 PGA Championship: Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Carl Pettersson Tied Atop Leaderboard

Tiger Woods is on top of a leaderboard at a major! Caveats: there's still 36 rounds of golf to play and he's in a three-way tie. But it's progress nonetheless for the golfer who hasn't won a major since 2009.

Woods was in sole possession of first for most of the back nine on Friday, but he bogeyed the 18th to finish 1-under par and at 4-under on the championship. He's tied with Carl Pettersson - who led at the beginning of the day, but was 2-over for the round - and Vijay Singh. Ian Poulter is one stroke off the lead after also bogeying the 18th hole, closely followed by Rory McIlroy and Jamie Donaldson at 2-under.

Obviously there's an awful lot of golf left to be played, but Woods is looking in form, especially his short game. After a few close calls at majors, it might be his time to finally win again.
