Players gird themselves for a long and wet PGA

Jan Ortega | 03 August, 2016, 01:11

It's wonderful how many people come out wearing a GAA jersey around the world so you can always identify them on the golf course.

"It's a major championship and we certainly try, and look at starting from one tee whenever we can", he said.

Of more interest for the overall tournament, Day, Streb and Walker were left watching.

And if Mickelson stands any chance of winning this tournament, he's going to need one of those record rounds Sunday, as he now sits seven shots behind co-leaders Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb (9-under).

They never struck a shot.

They could use plenty of rest, and a break in the weather. Because the pairings stayed the same in an attempt to finish, Kisner was to tee off in the final round while the leaders were still playing the front nine of their third round.

England's Justin Rose celebrated his 36th birthday with a four-under 66, that included three birdies in his last four holes, to move up to two under. All players will start from No. 1, with the final group teeing off at 3:25 p.m. More rain was in the forecast.

Holding a major in NY metropolitan area in the summer is to play weather roulette.

The last time the US PGA was held at Baltusrol in 2005, Phil Mickelson prevailed in a Monday finish brought about by poor weather. Players were upset about stops, starts and preparations around a first-round rain delay at the U.S. Open at Oakmont in June.

Mickelson made the cut with one shot to spare on Friday, rallying from an opening tee shot that went out-of-bounds and onto a side street.

The big movers among those who completed rounds Saturday were Kevin Kisner and three-time major champion Padraig Harrington, who won the 2008 PGA Championship.

Haigh called it "an interesting dynamic for sure, add to the excitement, actually".

Spieth finished up Thursday with two birdies in his last three holes to scratch out a 70, and he opened strong on Friday with back-to-back birdies on par-5 closing holes.

"I don't know, maybe I will run out of steam at some point, but up until then, I'll just keep trying my best", Stenson said.

"I really think someone is going to shoot 62 or 61 over the weekend". No one took more advantage that Streb, the 29-year-old from Oklahoma, who made eight birdies against one bogey. Mickelson and Henrik Stenson shots 63s this month in the British Open. "I would be surprised it wasn't". I just think that the course is playing to where you can fly 6-, 7-, 8-irons at the hole.

The greens have been soft throughout the tournament at Baltusrol and there has been little wind to contend with.
