With Louis Oosthuizen missing a putt on the 16th hole of Round 3 of the PGA Championship on Saturday, the CBS broadcast muttered, “It feels like a Sunday.”
Now just imagine what Sunday will actually feel like.
The way Phil Mickelson came out on the first nine holes, it looked like Sunday might just be a formality and celebration for one of the game’s most popular players. Mickelson held a five-stroke lead through 10 holes, sitting at 10-under par.
The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island was quick to bring Mickelson back, though, which gives us quite the oddsboard for the final round.
Mickelson is still the leader, but 7-under feels much more reachable than the round he was putting together earlier. His one-stroke lead over Brooks Koepka isn’t enough to make him the favorite though, as oddsmakers put Koepka on top. Oosthuizen enters Sunday two back at 5-under.
South African Christian Bezuidenhout is 3-under par, right behind Kevin Streelman at 4-under.
A large group lurks at 2-under par, highlighted by Bryson DeChambeau, who is fifth on the oddsboard. He’s joined by Joaquin Niemann, Gary Woodland and Brendan Grace.
Paul Casey, Sungjae Im and Corey Conners are further back at 1-under.
