Mito Pereira will take a three-shot lead on the final day of the PGA Championship in the Southern Hills. Pereira last scored 69 and was ahead of captains Will Saladoris and Matthew Fitzpatrick on the overnight.

However, Rory McIlroy suffered a significant initial setback in his attempt to end his severe drought. After running five straight bars, McIlroy pulled his tee shot into the water for the bar-third-sixth and ran up to the double-bogey five. It was followed by a triple-boogie six and McIlroy dropped another shot on the 18th to finish the day overall overall, despite the flow of birds.

The previous day, Tiger Woods had recorded his worst score at the PGA Championship, which had a major impact on the Southern Hills in a successful battle. Woods scored 79, his previous worst score in the US PGA in 2011 at 77 in the first round. “I didn’t play well,” Woods said. “I didn’t hit the ball well, I was not at the start I had to start. I hit a good tee shot two and thought it was over in the water, there really was no speed on my side.

It was confirmed at the end of the third day that Woods had withdrawn from the tournament and the 46-year-old would not play in the fourth round.

Follow below all the steps that promise an enigmatic final day:

Playoff: 18th hole

Zalatoris is at the forefront of his approach to green. He faded it around the corner and landed shortly before the ball was kicked and returned to the first cut. He has a putt for the bird there.

Justin Thomas went for a highlight and immersed himself in the green – today he is four yards closer than he was before. If he knocks it, he is the champion.

Playoff: 18th hole

What a drive from Justin Thomas. He punches it from left to right, hits the right side of the fairway and leaves a nice angle to hit the green two.

Will Zalatoris was slightly conservative and hit a straight 3-tree in the middle. The ball runs to the right, but he saw the green better than he had before.

Both players are in good condition.

Playoff: 18th hole

One more hole to go. This is the 18th and this is a tricky customer. The burr for the Jedi here might be enough to see him lift the trophy.

Zalatoris need to take a shot. He should be more adventurous than tea.

Playoff: 17th hole

Not bad. Jalatoris holds a cunning chip on top of the bunker, and his main problem is to stop the ball. He leaves seven to eight feet for a bird.

Justin Thomas has to navigate most of the green for an eagle.

Who is going to blink first?

Playoff: 17th hole

Then Bar-4 over 17. Justin Thomas bangs again. Green can drive here but will he pick it up?

He took the 3-tree out and threw the bombs from left to right. He carries it over the water, over the bunkers and into the green! Eagle Foot Incoming.

Can Zalatoris match him?

He sets his tee shot further to the right and is lucky to avoid the bunkers. He wants to chip something in green. A bird may still be enough for him here. Can he get on and off?

Playoff: 13th hole

Birds around. Jaladoris’ foot was a firecracker and he left it six inches from the hole for a tape-in ​​bird.

This puts pressure on Justin Thomas who still needs a little more work to complete this hole. He sets it to the left edge and watches it fall.

Playoff: 13th hole

Justin Thomas lies slightly lower on the green with his second stroke, and tries to pick up a bird by tapping it closer. Will Zaladoris takes out the 6-irons and hits a ring from right to left, which comes in green and ends about 20 feet away. He holds a foot to the eagle.
