SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – Nick Watney’s three-stroke lead entering the final round at the PGA Championship disappeared on the very first hole Sunday.
Watney, who was practically perfect Saturday, chunked his shot out of a greenside bunker, advancing maybe 15 yards and into heavy rough. He then two-putted for a double bogey. When Dustin Johnson, who collapsed after being the 54-hole leader at the U.S. Open, made an easy birdie, he and Watney were tied at 11 under.
Jason Day, a 22-year-old from Australia, and 25-year-old Martin Kaymer each birdied their second hole to join McIlroy at 10 under.
Phil Mickelson got to 7 under with an eagle on No. 5 and three straight birdies on the back nine. But he is still well behind the leaders.
Woods got off to a quick start with birdies on three of his first four holes. But he bogeyed No. 6 after his second shot landed in a bunker in front of the green and his third landed in the crowd behind the hole. He turned a birdie chance into a bogey with a three-putt on No. 9 and double-bogeyed the 10th after hooking his tee shot, putting him 1 over for the day.
