Follow all the action as Will Zalatoris takes a one shot lead in the third round of the PGA Championship.

The 25-year-old American followed a first-round 66 with a 65 on Friday as he bids to win his first major title. He will be paired with Mito Pereira in the final group, who had never made the cut at a major before. There is a packed field behind them which includes Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy. The Northern Irishman failed to capitalize on his dramatic start and clocked a 71 over par yesterday and is now five shots off the lead.

Tiger Woods once again showed extraordinary courage to avoid the cut after a round of 16 finish, although his hopes of a 16th major victory are now obsolete. However, several notable names failed to qualify, including world No. 1 and Masters champion Scottie Scheffler, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Cantlay. “Definitely frustrating,” Scheffler said. “I’m disappointed too. It’s never fun to miss a cut. I want to be able to play on weekends and try to perform as hard as I can. I just didn’t get it this week.

However, some notable names did not make it into the weekend, including world number one Scottie Scheffler. The Masters champion entered the week as a slight favorite but often looked frustrated as he failed to meet his own expectations.

“I had good shots, I had bad ones, and I was punished pretty badly for the bad ones,” Scheffler said. “Today I hit a lot of good shots, just had a few weird bursts and couldn’t make any putts.”

“Certainly frustrating. I’m disappointed too. It’s never fun to miss a cut. I want to be able to play on weekends and try to perform as hard as I can. I just didn’t get it this week.
