PGA Championship at a glance
A brief look at the suspended third round of the 94th PGA
Championship on Saturday on The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island:
LEADING: Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh at 6 under. McIlroy
completed nine holes, and Singh finished seven
TRAILING: Adam Scott at 5 under through nine holes.
TIGER TALES: Woods failed to birdie the par-5 second, then
missed a 4-foot birdie putt that unnerved him. Woods made bogeys on
three of his next four holes and faced an 8-foot par putt on No. 8
when play resumes Sunday morning.
ON THE REBOUND: Adam Scott shot a 75 in windy conditions Friday,
then birdied four of the last five holes he played Saturday before
the round was suspended.
MAJOR REPORT: Masters champion Bubba Watson had his lowest round
of the week with a 70. British Open winner Ernie Els shot 73.
Watson was eight shots back. Els was 10 shots behind.
SHOT OF THE DAY: Rory McIlroy finding his ball in a rotted out
tree. He took unplayable lie, yet made par.
RYDER CUP: Don’t count Padraig Harrington out of the Ryder Cup
yet. The Irishman shot a 69 to move five strokes off the lead.
European captain Jose Maria Olazabal said Harrington would have to
do something special to warrant a selection.
KEY STATISTIC: Twenty-six players will return at 7:45 a.m.
Sunday to finish the third round. Players will be grouped in threes
and go off both the first and 10th tees in the fourth round.
NOTEWORTHY: Vijay Singh shot the only round in the 60s in
Friday’s second round. There have already been seven sub-70 rounds
in the suspended third round. .
QUOTEWORTHY: ”I did what I could do and I’m sure before I go to
bed tonight I’ll know kind of where I stand going into tomorrow and
see what happens.” – Bo Van Pelt before third-round play was
