There are a couple things you know for sure in golf. One is that Tiger Woods will wear red on Sundays. The other is that no one in their right mind will be betting against Rory McIlroy tomorrow, or for the foreseeable future.
Who is Tiger Woods anyway?
Rory McIlroy, fresh off his British Open Championship, birdied the 18th hole at Valhalla Golf Course in Louisville, Kentucky to take the outright lead into the clubhouse on Saturday (-13). Although he doesn’t have as much breathing room as he has in the past, you would be hardpressed to find anyone who doesn’t think McIlroy is the favorite to win his second PGA Championship.
On the heels of McIlroy is Bernd Wiesberger (-12) who shot an incredible 65 on Saturday. Also, as it always seems, Rickie Fowler (-11) is right there in the mix as well. Right behind Fowler is Phil Mickelson and Jason Day at 10 under par.
Jason Day had to use some serious talent to save himself on Sunday and Mickelson should never be counted out of a major.
Sunday will be the day to watch if you haven’t thus far. With the wet conditions at the course, anything can happen. A lot of birdies will be made and a lot of low rounds will be recorded.
Can Rory McIlroy pull in his fourth major of his career? Will Fowler finally get past his buddy? Will Mickelson put these kids in their place?
