2022 PGA Championship: Mito Pereira takes lead after Round 3 originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
One round to go in Tulsa and the leaderboard is far from settled.
After another successful Masters Tournament, the PGA Championship, the second major tournament of 2022, is underway.
Mito Pereira finished Saturday in the lead, shooting just under par to finish 9-under on the weekend. He’s followed closely by Matt Fitzpatrick (6-under), Will Zalatoris (6-under) and Cameron Young (5-under). While Zalatoris fell from the top position, Fitzpatrick and Young each climbed six positions to put themselves in position to compete on the final day of play.
The biggest jump of the day came from Webb Simpson. The 2012 U.S. Open Champion shot 5-under, the best score of Round 3, to jump 54 places into a tie for 10th. Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy, who led after the first round, fell 12 more spots into a tie for 17th place.
Tiger Woods is back for his second majors competition since his accident only 14 months ago. The four-time winner of the PGA championship posted an impressive Round 2 to make his second-straight cut, but struggled to maintain momentum into the weekend. He shot 9-over on Saturday, including four-straight bogeys on the back nine, to end the day tied for 76th.
The stage is set for an exciting final round on Sunday. Here’s everything you need to know for the entirety of the 2022 PGA Championship:
