How it happened: Furyk leads, Dufner 1 back at PGA

Jim Furyk during the third round of the 2013 PGA Championship at Oak Hill.

Jim Furyk will get another shot at closing out a major championship following his late collapse at last year's U.S. Open.

Furyk shot 2-under 68 Saturday at Oak Hill and at 9 under, leads the PGA Championship by a shot over Jason Dufner, who followed Friday's 63 with a third-round 71.

Swedes Henrik Stenson (7 under) and Jonas Blixt (6 under) are third and fourth, respectively, while Steve Stricker, Adam Scott, Lee Westwood and defending champ Rory McIlroy are all within six shots of the lead.

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson couldn't muster up some third-round magic, Woods shooting 73 and Mickelson struggling mightily en route to a 78.

Update No. 2: 2:51 p.m. EDT

Jason Dufner and Adam Scott are about to tee off, but first let's look at some of Tiger Woods' third-round stats: Four bogeys, one birdie, 11-of-18 greens hit and 5-of-14 fairways hit. He has still yet to break par in seven competitive rounds at Oak Hill.

• • •

Hole No. 18: Par 4, 497 yards

Two straight bogeys for Tiger entering his final hole of the round. Not the finish he was hoping for. But then again, not the major performance he was hoping for through three days.

Off the tee: Tiger hits driver and finds a right fairway bunker.

Approach shot: From the sand, Tiger can't find the green, leaving it short and in the rough.

Around the green: With the green above Woods, he hits about 8 feet past.

On the green: Tiger closes out his 3-over 73 by making his par putt.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 over through 18 holes (4 over for the tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 17: Par 4, 509 yards

Tiger continues to miss putts right. He birdied No. 17 on Friday, though, so maybe he can make up for the bogey at No. 16 with a birdie at the penultimate hole again today.

Off the tee: Tiger takes driver and sends it left into the gallery.

Approach shot: Tiger finds the sand for the second straight hole, hitting into a greenside bunker from the rough.

Around the green: Tiger nearly holes bunker shot, but it spins back to about 15 feet.

On the green: Tiger misses his par putt as the ball misses just right again. Another bogey.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 3 over through 17 holes (4 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Rory McIlroy bogeys the par-4 10th, his first bogey of the day, to drop back to even par. . . . Steve Stricker and Martin Kaymer both birdie their opening hole, Stricker moving to 6 under, Kaymer to 5 under.

• • •

Hole No. 16: Par 4, 439 yards

Tiger's major-less streak will continue this week, but he can still gain momentum heading into Sunday with a strong finish over these last three holes.

Off the tee: Tiger misses right with the fairway wood.

Approach shot: From the rough, Tiger finds a greenside bunker.

Around the green: Tiger doesn't like his shot from the sand, and for good reason. It's well short of the hole.

On the green: From 35 feet, Tiger misses the par putt right, resulting in his third bogey of the round.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 16 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson bogeys Nos. 17-18 to wrap up an 8-over 78. He's 10 over for the championship.

• • •

Hole No. 15: Par 3, 181 yards

Tiger went for the green off the tee at No. 14, and it didn't pay off. Now he gets the final par-3 of the day.

Off the tee: Middle of the green for Tiger.

On the green: Woods can't get the long birdie try to drop, running it by right of the cup, and it's another tap-in par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over through 15 holes (2 over for the tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 14: Par 4, 323 yards

Tiger fails to take advantage of the par-5s today, but he can still salvage an under-par round if he makes a coupe birdies to close.

Off the tee: Tiger goes for the green off the tee, but misses left and in the trees.

Around the green: Tiger's chip fails to check and it rolls through the green. His second is much better, as he leaves himself a foot for par.

On the green: Tap-in par for Woods.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over through 14 holes (2 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson is 6 over through 16 holes today, and 8 over for the tournament. . . . Jonas Blixt is 1 under through three holes today to move to 3 under overall.

• • •

Hole No. 13: Par 5, 598 yards

Another missed opportunity for Tiger, who now moves to the second and final par-5 at Oak Hill. He birdied No. 13 on Thursday.

Off the tee: Woods finds the fairway, but he'll likely just lay up.

Second shot: As expected, Tiger lays up in the fairway.

Third shot: Tiger finds the green and he'll have a 20-footer for birdie coming up.

On the green: This putt break severely left to right, and Tiger leaves it about a foot or two to the left. He makes par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over through 13 holes (2 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: A birdie at the par-3 sixth moves Rory McIlroy to 1 under for the championship. . . . Kevin Streelman bogeys the par-4 18th to card a 4-under 66. He'll enter Sunday at 2 under.

• • •

Hole No. 12: Par 4, 372 yards

Tiger ends his birdie-less streak, but can he keep it going?

Off the tee: Tiger finds the middle of the fairway with iron.

Approach shot: With wedge, Tiger stick it to 5 feet to set up a third straight good look at birdie.

On the green: Tiger misses it right, and this one wasn't a good roll at all. He has a few feet coming back for par, and he makes that.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over through 12 holes (2 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Kevin Streelman is 5 under through 16 holes, and he's 3 under overall.

• • •

Hole No. 11: Par 3, 226 yards

Tiger has just one birdie in his last 12 holes, and he hasn't been reading his birdie putts correctly today, missing a bunch to the right.

Off the tee: 3-iron for Woods, who lands it about 10 feet past. Good shot.

On the green: And there it is: Tiger's first birdie.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over through 11 holes (2 over for the tournament)

• • •

Hole No. 10: Par 4, 429 yards

Tiger hit just three fairways on the front nine, and his one-putt at No. 9 was his first of the day.

Off the tee: Smooth swing with the fairway wood as Tiger finds the fairway.

Approach shot: This one is nice. Tiger sticks it to about 8 feet and he'll have his best look at birdie coming up.

On the green: Again, Tiger misses right. Another par, and this one is really disappointing.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 10 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Dustin Johnson carded a 5-under 65 today, his best score in a major, and he'll enter Sunday at 2 under. Click here to read more.

• • •

Hole No. 9: Par 4, 452 yards

Tiger double-bogeyed No. 9 on Thursday before making par on Friday. It's likely that he'll enter the back nine without a birdie today, as this closing hole on the front nine is tough, especially the way Tiger has been hitting it off the tee today.

Off the tee: Tiger misses this one way left, shouting fore as the ball rattles around the trees. That was a bad miss.

Approach shot: Tiger actually got lucky and has a good line at the green, although he has to hit a fairway wood to get there. After a big cut, Tiger gets it up there and is in the rough just off the green.

Around the green: Tiger's flop is a good one as he gets it to about 2 feet.

On the green: Easy par for Tiger and a good up-and-down.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 9 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson birdies the par-4 12th to get back to 5 over.

• • •

Hole No. 8: Par 4, 428 yards

After that lip-out, Tiger still doesn't have a birdie today. Tiger made par here at No. 8 on Thursday and Friday.

Off the tee: With fairway wood, Tiger finds the left intermediate cut.

Approach shot: Tiger is about a club short as he lands it in the center of the green, well below the hole. He'll have 45 feet or so for birdie.

On the green: He lags it about 3 feet short, but saves par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 8 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson is 6 over, but he saves a shot by making par from long distance at No. 10. . . . Marc Leishman is 2 under through four holes today to move to 2 under overall.

• • •

Hole No. 7: Par 4, 461 yards

Tiger just can't get anything to drop so far, although he's not giving himself any great looks at birdie either.

Off the tee: Tiger opts for fairway wood and finds the middle of the fairway.

Approach shot: Good second shot for Tiger, who lands it about 15 feet away.

On the green: This one breaks left to right, and Tiger gives it a good roll. But it catches the edge and lips out. He makes par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 7 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Rory McIlroy misses the fairway and green right at No. 1, but after a free drop after someone kicks his ball, McIlroy gets up-and-down for par to remain at even par.

• • •

Hole No. 6: Par 3, 175 yards

After finding his first fairway, Tiger can't capitalize. He's still birdie-less through five holes.

Off the tee: With 7-iron, Tiger sticks this one on the green. Only problem is it's still about 25 feet away from the hole.

On the green: Another miss right and Tiger makes another par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 6 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson drops to 6 over after a bogey at No. 9. . . . Rory McIlroy has just teed off in his third round, and he misses the fairway right at No. 1.

• • •

Hole No. 5: Par 4, 428 yards

Tiger has yet to hit a fairway, and his score so far is reflecting that.

Off the tee: And it's a fairway for Tiger, who finds the short stuff off the tee for the first time.

Approach shot: Tiger leaves this shot a little right, but it's not bad. He'll have 25 feet or so for his birdie coming up.

On the green: Tiger misses right again and he settles for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 5 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Dustin Johnson has six birdies today, including four on the back nine, and he's now 2 under for the championship with two holes to play for his third round. . . . Keegan Bradley birdies No. 5 to move back to 1 over.

• • •

Hole No. 4: Par 5, 570 yards

Two missed fairways and two missed greens for Tiger Woods through three holes. The way things are going, it looks like it will take a miracle for Tiger to play himself back into contention.

Off the tee: Tiger goes with driver for the first time today and misses the fairway right. This one hit the gallery.

Second shot: From the rough, Tiger lays up, but misses the fairway again. This time the ball lands in the right intermediate rough.

Third shot: Tiger steps off the ball and checks the wind one more time before hitting his best shot of the day. He'll have about 15 feet for birdie.

On the green: Like his par putt at No. 3, this one stays right the entire way. Tiger then taps in for par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 4 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson makes a mess of the par-4 seventh hole, making triple bogey to drop to 5 over.

• • •

Hole No. 3: Par 3, 214 yards

After missing a second fairway in as many holes, Tiger recovers to save par. Now he'll get the first par-3 of the day, No. 3, where he's made par each of the first two rounds.

Off the tee: Tiger just misses staying on the green with a 4-iron. He watched it like it was going to be close to the flag, but he'll have a chip coming up as the ball rolled back into the rough.

Around the green: This chip doesn't have a lot of spin and the ball ends up about 15 feet past.

On the green: This one stays right the whole way and Tiger taps in for bogey.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 2 over through 3 holes (3 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Brendon de Jonge is 3 under through his first six holes, moving to 1 under overall as a result. . . . Brooks Koepka makes a long birdie putt at No. 9 to move back to 1 over.

• • •

Hole No. 2: Par 4, 401 yards

Not a good start for Tiger, who proves the point that finding fairways is a must at a major championship.

Off the tee: Tiger goes with 3-iron off the tee, but again finds the rough left.

Approach shot: From the rough, Tiger finds the middle of the green from about 175 yards out.

On the green: Tiger has about 40 feet uphill for birdie and he gives this one a good roll. It just misses and runs a few feet past. Tiger recovers to save par.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over through 2 holes (2 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: David Hearn holes out from a greenside bunker at the par-4 seventh hole to move back to 1 over. . . . Dustin Johnson is 3 under through 13 holes today to move back to even par. . . . Ken Duke plays his first nine in 3 under with four birdies and he's back to even par, too.

• • •

Hole No. 1: Par 4, 460 yards

Tiger Woods will play with Keegan Bradley for the fifth straight round today. Woods is wearing a white shirt with black on the front along with a white hat, black pants and white shoes.

Off the tee: Tiger's first drive of the day is hit left and it bounces into the rough.

Approach shot: This shot is not very good. It comes out low and left and hits a tree. Tiger gets lucky, though, as his ball misses the water and bounces back into the fairway.

Third shot: Not what Tiger wanted, but he has a wedge into the green for his third shot. He lands it about 20 feet short and he'll have a long par save coming up.

On the green: Tiger leaves this one a foot short and he knows it immediately. He taps in for bogey to begin his day.

TIGER ON THE DAY: 1 over through 1 hole (2 over for the tournament)

Elsewhere on the course: Phil Mickelson has a short par putt lip out at No. 4 and he drops back to 2 over after making the bogey putt.

• • •

Update No. 1: 10:49 a.m. EDT

We're about 15 minutes from Tiger Woods' third-round tee time, but play has already begun for the day at Oak Hill. Phil Mickelson made par at No. 1 and he remains at even par. Brandt Snedeker and Dustin Johnson are each 1 under early in their rounds and both are 2 over for the tournament. Brooks Koepka is 2 under through five holes today to move to 1 over.
