UPDATE No. 12 (5:55 p.m. ET): Rodgers just made bogey at the par-5 17th to fall to 17 under and needs a birdie on 18 to force a playoff with DeChambeau. If not, he’s gonna be thinking about that bogey for quite some time.

UPDATE No. 11 (5:45 p.m. ET): DeChambeau finishes birdie-birdie to move to 18 under and grab a share of the lead, Patrick Rodgers currently playing the par-5 17th. Clutch stuff, let’s see if it holds.

UPDATE No. 10 (5:30 p.m. ET): DeChambeau just rolled in a short birdie putt at the par-5 17th to get to 17 under, and he now trails Rodgers as he heads to the the par-4 18th. Needs another birdie there to really put some pressure on Rodgers, as it’s basically a two-man race at this point.

UPDATE No. 9 (5:11 p.m. ET): Rodgers tries to be aggressive at the short par-4 14th and it bites him. He hits driver into fairway bunker, skulls 52-yard second over green, chips back to 13 feet and can’t make the par putt. That bogey drops him to 17 under, and his lead is one.

UPDATE No. 8 (4:48 p.m. ET): Rodgers birdies No. 13, too, and he’s now two ahead at 18 under.

UPDATE No. 7 (4:34 p.m. ET): Patrick Rodgers is the outright leader again as he birdies the 12th to move to 17 under.

UPDATE No. 6 (3:53 p.m. ET): Wesley Bryan birdies Nos. 13-17 to shoot 7-under 64. He’s in at 16 under and tied for the lead with Zach Johnson (through 14). Rodgers, Scott Stallings and Daniel Berger are all 15 under through nine. Doubtful 16 under holds up, but you never know…

UPDATE No. 5 (2:38 p.m. ET): Barring TPC Deere Run turning into Oakmont right now, Stricker will come up short. He missed a good birdie look at 17 to move to 17 under. He then bogeyed 18 to fall to 15 under. He’s now one behind Patrick Rodgers, who is through four. Stricker is likely not going to win, but a 65-64 stretch on the weekend is amazing, and Stricker played his final 58 holes of the week in 18 under. Way to go, Stricks! Savage!

UPDATE No. 4 (1:37 p.m. ET): Stricker birdies 14 as well for his third straight birdie. After rolling in that 6-footer, he’s now tied for the lead at 16 under. He may still need to birdie out, though, or close to have a chance.

Regardless, remarkable. Stricker started the final round eight back, but he also made the cut on the number and was 3 over through eight holes in Round 1.

UPDATE No. 3 (1:22 p.m. ET): Steve Stricker! The three-time champion here is making a stunning charge. Birdies at Nos. 12 and 13 boost him to 7 under for the round and 15 under overall. That’s right, he’s ONE back. Now, before we get you too hyped, we’ve got to think with the way the course is playing, the winning score will be close to 20 under. So Stricker probably still needs to play his final five boles in something like 3 or 4 under to have a chance.

UPDATE No. 2 (12:53 p.m. ET): Morgan Hoffmann is 8 under on his final round and 14 under overall! Just two back, but he has two holes left and it’s highly doubtful the winning number will be the current lead of 16 under (think closer to 20 under). Brian Harman, though, is now 14 under after starting Sunday birdie-eagle-par-par-birdie. He won this tournament just three years ago!

UPDATE No. 1 (11:17 a.m. ET): Some good scores out there early. Y.E. Yang and Morgan Hoffmann are both out in 5-under 30 to reach 11 under. Steve Stricker starts birdie-birdie-birdie to also reach 11 under.
