PGA Championship 2012 Leaderboard: Vijay Singh And Tiger Woods Prepare To Tee Off Still In The Lead

Vijay Singh and Tiger Woods will tee off shortly at Kiawah Island as third round play begins at the 2012 PGA Championship. They finished their second rounds atop of the leaderboard, and as play begins to wind down they still share the lead with Sweden's Cart Pettersen at 4-under.

Jimmy Walker has been the biggest move up the leaderboard on Saturday thus far, as his 5-under 67 on Saturday has vaulted him into a tie for 13th place with a three round score of 1-under. Jason Dufner has also found success on Saturday by shooting a 4-under 68 in the third round. Dufner sits at 2-over overall and in a tie for 33rd place.

Per SB Nation's Brendan Porath, scores have reflected the changes in the course for the third round, with more scores under par on Saturday.

Unlike Friday, there are plenty of players under par on Saturday morning at Kiawah's Ocean Course. The wind has calmed a bit, slowing from the treacherous 35 MPH gusts on Friday to 15 MPH breezes on Saturday. The PGA of America also set up some more benign pin placements, approximately 12 paces from the edge. As a result, we're seeing many fewer implosions and a couple low numbers on the front side.

Can Woods, Singh and Pettersen take advantages of the adjustments keep their pace and stay atop of the leaderboard? We'll have more on the third round from South Carolina when it happens.
