PGA Championship 2011: Final Group On The Course, Shifting Atop The Leaderboard

The entire field is finally on the course for the final round of the PGA Championship as third round leaders Jason Dufner and Brendan Steele try to hang on for their first major victory. There already has been some shifting atop the leaderboard only a few holes into their round as the race for the Wanamaker trophy is at a full sprint to the finish line.

Steele had an unfortunate bogey on the first hole, moving him back to six-under par and one behind the leaders through two holes. Dufner remains at seven-under through two, while veteran Scott Verplank has moved to six-under as well through three holes with a birdie on the 2nd. Andres Hansen has moved to four-under through four holes, while Nick Watney is two-under for the day through seven holes, moving him to three-under for the week and four shots behind the leaders.

With things bunching up around the leaders and almost the entire field left to play the difficult stretch of the 15-18th holes, it literally is still anyone’s game who is around the top of the leaderboard.
