Round 3 updates (all times Eastern)
10 p.m.: That wraps the third round at TPC Harding Park. Dustin Johnson will head to the final round at 9-under and one shot in front of Scottie Scheffler and Cameron Champ.
9:55 p.m.: It was a tough finish for Li, who shot a 73 to end up at 5-under and tied for 13th place. It’s not where he wanted to be after starting the day with the lead.
9:40 p.m.: Brooks Koepka rolls in a much-needed birdie at 18 to finish an up-and-down day with a respectable 69. He’s 7-under for the tournament and well within striking distance of his third straight PGA Championship title.

9:31 p.m.: Cameron Champ ends his day at 8-under. His birdie putt on 18 came up just short, which cost him a chance to be part of the final group to go out on Sunday. Either way, he’s in the thick of it.
9:06 p.m.: Tough stretch for Li, who followed his double bogey with a bogey on 14 to drop him to 6-under. Brooks Koepka has also hit a rut with three straight bogeys on 13, 14 and 15. He’s now 5-under.
9:01 p.m.: Dustin Johnson captures the new clubhouse lead at 9-under after capping a round of 65. He’ll have a shot at winning his second career major on Sunday.
8:55 p.m.: DJ is indeed the singular leader after a Cypress tree apparently ate Li’s drive on 13. He had to take a penalty and re-tee due to the lost ball, which led to a double bogey. Champ duffed a shot from the rough on 15 en route to a bogey himself. Champ is 8-under and Li falls to 7-under.
8:47 p.m.: Well hello there, Dustin Johnson. He just buried his eighth birdie of the day on 17 to join the leaders at 9-under. And he may be alone at the top very soon because both Li and Champ are in trouble on their respective holes.

8:37 p.m.: Birdie putts are dropping all over the course. Haotong Li and Cameron Champ both just moved to 9-under to re-establish the leading number. The field is collectively moving further under par, with several at 8 and 7-under.
8:32 p.m.: Scheffler ends his round with a disappointing bogey on 18 but still turns in a fantastic 65 which matches Collin Morikawa for the best score of the day. Scheffler is the clubhouse leader at 8-under and Morikawa is one shot back at 7-under.
8:14 p.m.: Make that an outright lead for Scheffler! The birdie train continues as he drops one in on 17 to get to 9-under. This could be the round of the tournament.
8:08 p.m.: Scottie Scheffler is a co-leader at 8-under after he goes birdie-birdie on the 15th and 16th. His monster round continues.
8:04 p.m.: Bryson DeChambeau finished his day with a huge bang, nailing a birdie putt from a whopping 95 feet out on 18. That was good for a round of 66 to get him to 6-under. He’s in the mix headed to the final round.

7:58 p.m.: Cameron Champ briefly joined Li at 8-under with a birdie on the 10th, but immediately gave it back with a bogey on 11.
7:35 p.m: Haotong Li bounced back nicely from his first bogey with a birdie on the seventh. He’s back in first place by himself at 8-under. Now here come the toughest holes on the course.
7:30 p.m.: This leaderboard is absolutely packed. A rotating group of four to six players are co-leading at 7-under and there are 19 players within two shots of that mark. It’s anyone’s tournament right now.
7:03 p.m.: Our leader had his first slip-up of the day. Li bogeyed No. 5 to drop to a four-way tie up top at 7-under. As of now that group includes Brooks Koepka, Jason Day and Daniel Berger.
6:47 p.m.: Some updates from earlier rounds: Rory McIlroy bogeyed four of his last six holes to end up with a 71 on the day. He’s even par for the tournament. Patrick Cantlay and Ian Poulter both shot 66 for the best completed rounds of the day. Both are now 3-under for the week, so it might be too little, too late.
6:45 p.m.: Scottie Scheffler is putting together one of the best rounds of the day, thanks partly to this birdie chip-in from the bunker on No. 8. He’s part of a growing group of players at 7-under and one stroke off the lead.
6:01 p.m.: The final grouping of Haotong Li and Tommy Fleetwood has begun Round 3. Here we go.
5:52 p.m.: The action is about to pick up as the contenders begin their rounds. Two-time defending champion Brooks Koepka (6-under) is on the course, and leader Haotong Li (8-under) is minutes away from teeing off.

4:56 p.m.: Tiger Woods birdies No. 18 — two birdies in his final three holes — to finish the third round with a 2-over 72. Kevin Mitchell, his playing partner Saturday, shot a 2-under 68.

3:32 p.m.: Jordan Spieth finishes with a birdie at No. 18 but has a round to forget (6-over 76). Playing partner Justin Thomas bogeys 18 and settles for a 2-under 68 after his strong start.
3:22 p.m.: Another bogey for Tiger on No. 11 as he drops to 2-over on the day and the tournament.

2:56 p.m.: Tiger Woods makes no birdies on the front nine. He makes the turn 1-over on the day and the tournament.
2:55 p.m.: Rory McIlroy opens his third round with pars on Nos. 1 and 2. He’ll look to make a move on holes 3-7, where you can get on a birdie run, but the wind is picking up.
2:40 p.m.: Tiger’s par run ends — and it’s not good. A three-putt bogey at No. 8 puts him at 1-over on the day and the tournament.
2:30 p.m.: Rory McIlroy has teed off in the third round.
2:29 p.m.: Tiger Woods burns another edge on a birdie putt and settles for his seventh straight par in the third round.
