PGA Championship 2024 at Valhalla Golf Club: Live updates from Day 3 in Louisville

The excitement that accompanied Round 1 of the PGA Championship, and Xander Schauffele's historic performance at Valhalla Golf Club, turned to sadness — then the bizarre.

Friday's second round will be remembered for the death of John Mills, a 69-year-old man from Crestwood who was working in the major tournament's security detail, and the arrest of the world's top golfer, Scottie Scheffler.

What will Saturday have in store? We'll start at the end of Round 2.

Play was suspended due to darkness at 8:41 p.m. Friday and will resume at 7:15 a.m. Saturday. After everyone has completed their second rounds, the PGA of America will cut the field of 156 to 70 (including ties) and release the Round 3 tee times.

Schauffele, at 12 under after 36 holes, had a one-stroke lead over Collin Morikawa when play was halted. Scheffler was in a four-way tie for fourth at 9 under after a 5-under round following his release from Louisville Metro Corrections.

Courier Journal reporters Ryan Black and C.L. Brown — along with photographers Matt Stone and Clare Grant — are at Valhalla and will provide coverage throughout Saturday.

Down to the wire heading into the final round of the PGA Championship

Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele are tied at the top of the PGA leaderboard at 15 under.

With a birdie on the 18th hole, Sahith Theegala moved up to third place at 14 under.

Shane Lowry, who climbed 25 spots today on the PGA Championship leaderboard, is tied with Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland for fourth.

Shane Lowry: Ties major championship history

With a par on his final hole Saturday, Shane Lowry became part of history: He carded only the fifth 62 ever shot in a major championship.

It's the second 62 recorded this week, as Xander Schauffele accomplished the feat during Thursday's first round. The 62s shot by Lowry and Schauffele are the Valhalla course record.

The other 62s achieved in major-championship competition are Schauffele (2023 U.S. Open), Rickie Fowler (2023 U.S. Open) and Branden Grace (2017 Open Championship).

Justin Thomas makes highlight-reel chip-in birdie on 14th hole at PGA Championship

Out of position after his tee shot went well left of the green, Justin Thomas appeared to be in a fight to avoid bogey (or worse) at the par-3 14th. Instead, he made one of the shots of the tournament, chipping in for birdie from nearly 90 feet away.

Check out the shot in the embedded video below.

Xander Schauffele moves back in front

There's no longer a tie at the top: Xander Schauffele birdied the seventh hole to move to 1-under on his round and 13-under for the championship. He now leads Shane Lowry and Collin Morikawa by one stroke.

Shane Lowry makes Valhalla history

Shane Lowry accomplished something Saturday that never had been done at Valhalla Golf Club in the four times the course has hosted the PGA Championship: He posted a 29 on the front nine. Lowry is the first player to break 30 on either nine at Valhalla during a PGA Championship; the course previously hosted the event in 1996, 2000 and 2014.

Collin Morikawa grabs share of the lead at PGA Championship

A birdie on No. 5 for Collin Morikawa moved him to 12-under for the tournament, tying Xander Schauffele at the top of the leaderboard. Schauffele also had a birdie putt on No. 5 but it slid past the hole and had to settle for par.

Slow start to the third round for Scottie Scheffler

World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler has started the third round in a slump, with three bogeys on his first four holes.

Scheffler was 4 over through four holes in a major for the first time in his career.

Major champions Shane Lowry, Justin Rose surging up leaderboard at Valhalla Golf Club

Shane Lowry and Justin Rose know what it's like to win a major. Lowry captured the 2019 Open while Rose was victorious at the 2013 U.S. Open.

So far, no one has been better than that pair Saturday. Each are one third of their way through the third round, with identical scores of 4-under par through six holes.

Rose is at 9-under for the tournament and tied for fifth, while Lowry is 8-under and tied for 10th.

Jon Rahm had longest active streak of made cuts in majors. Who's No. 1 now?

Entering the 2024 PGA Championship, two-time major winner Jon Rahm boasted the longest active streak of made cuts at major championships, playing the weekend 18 straight times at golf's four biggest events. But he won't play the final two rounds at Valhalla Golf Club this weekend, finishing at even par after 36 holes to miss the cut by just one stroke. Prior to this week, the last time he missed the cut at a major was the 2019 PGA Championship at Bethpage Black.

The longest active streak of made cuts in the majors now belongs to Hideki Matsuyama, the 2021 Masters champion. Matsuyama has made 16 consecutive cuts at major championships. The last one he didn't make, like Rahm, came in 2019, when he wasn't around for the final two days of the Open Championship at Royal Portrush.
