2011 PGA Championship Leaderboard: Americans Brendan Steele And Jason Dufner Lead Field At -6

The third round of the PGA Championship is underway and four Americans- Brendan Steele, Jason Dufner, Keegan Bradley and Jim Furyk- sit at the top of the leaderboard. Steele and Dufner lead the field at 6-under overall, with Steele sporting a 3-under through ten holes and Dufner posting a 1-under through seven holes.

Bradley and Furyk both stand one shot off the lead at 5-under. Bradley, who started in a tie for first at the beginning of the day, has an even score through eight holes and has slipped to a third-place tie. Furyk, on the other hand, started in a tie for third at the beginning of Saturday and has maintained his position by shooting 1-under through ten holes.

David Toms' early 5-under performance still remains the best of the day as the golfing action continues. Toms, who began the day at 3-over, jumped from a tie for 53rd to a tie for 10th.

Other players who have made big moves so far include Swede Robert Karlsson and American Ben Crane. Karlsson, nearing the end of his round, has put up a 4-under performance through 17 holes. He is currently 3-under overall and has jumped from a tie for 26th at the start of the day to a tie for sixth.

Crane, who has finished his round, shot a 4-under 66 to reach 1-under overall. He has moved up the leaderboard from a tie for 53rd to a tie for 16th.
