PITTSFORD – After a thrilling, historic Friday on the links, day three of the PGA Championship has commenced at Oak Hill Country Club.

Jason Dufner (-9), who leads the pack, will tee off at 2:55 p.m. and is paired with England’s Adam Scott (-7), the Masters champion ranked No. 5 in the world. Dufner set the East Course record yesterday by firing a 63, which tied the low round in major championship history.

Scott, who shot a 68 Friday, is in a pack of three players tied for second – Matt Kuchar and Jim Furyk, the leader after day one, are the others in that group.

World No. 1 Tiger Woods has gotten off to a slow start today. He bogeyed the 460-yard, par-4 hole No. 1. Woods (+2) is tied for 56th and will need a big day today if he wants any prayer at contending for the title Sunday.

World No. 2 Phil Mickelson (+2) is even today through five holes. He birdied hole No. 3 but bogeyed the par-5 No. 4.

The weather has been clear so far. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, an average temperature of 72 degrees and northwest winds 10-15 miles per hour. The relative humidity is 50 percent.
