The third round of the PGA Championship kicked off on Saturday morning with a familiar face at the top of the leaderboard.

Phil Mickelson played a tremendous round on Friday afternoon, carding a three-under, 69. After a two-under, 70 in the first round, Mickelson found himself at five-under for the tournament.

That was good enough to enter the third round tied for the lead with South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen. Well, just a few holes into the round on Saturday afternoon and Mickelson is no longer tied for the lead.

That’s because he holds the lead all to himself. Mickelson found two early birdies in his third round, while Oosthuizen sits at one-over for the day.

That gave Mickelson a three-shot lead over the South African star and four-time major champion Brooks Koepka – who both sit a four-under par for the tournament.
