PGA Championship Round 3 grades

The 16-time PGA Tour winner never really found a rhythm on Saturday in a 1-over-par 72, despite getting to within a shot of the lead after a birdie at the 10th. He had the worst round of the players at the top of the leaderboard at the beginning of the third round.

Jason Day    World Ranking: No. 9 | Scores: 69-65-69

Day struggled on Saturday with his ballstriking, but he stayed patient enough to stay in the tournament through a gritty 2-under 69. In the final round, he can't have the errant drives that he had on Saturday if he wants to beat McIlroy.


Phil Mickelson    World Ranking: No. 13 | Scores: 69-67-67

A Phil Mickelson round is never boring. On his back nine on Saturday, he had just three pars in an inward half that included bogeys at 11 and 12 and four consecutive birdies to complete a third-round 67. That put him at 10-under for the championship and 3 shots off the lead. Major championship No. 6 is in his reach. .

Rickie Fowler    World Ranking: No. 18 | Scores: 69-66-67

Fowler had a bogey-free 67 on Saturday for an 11-under total. With two second-place finishes and a fifth-place result already in the majors this season, it's time for him to finish one off with a victory. His final-round scoring average in those three majors is 70.66. He will definitely need to lower that average on Sunday to win.
