Saturday was an incredible day from Valhalla as Rory held on to his third-round lead (barely) and looks for major No. 4 on Sunday. 

Here's a recap of what you missed from the third round:

7:14 p.m. -- Rory alone after a birdie at No. 18. Tomorrow should be absolutely tremendous.

7:02 p.m. -- How great is this reaction to his missed eagle putt on No. 18?

6:34 p.m. -- This is craziness. 

6:21 p.m. -- I was about to say how annoying it is that Bernd Wiesberger is leading the PGA Championship but then Rory knotted it back up. This is tremendous stuff.

6:08 p.m. -- This is an amazing picture of Rory McIlroy on the first hole:

5:59 p.m. -- I'm putting together a list of folks who have won four majors and at what age they won their fourth. You're going to be surprised to see where Rory fits in.

5:50 p.m. -- I feel like Fowler is so much more in control of his game right now than Rory is. For whatever that's worth.

5:48 p.m. -- Uh oh, Rory's in trouble. He needs to get up and down for bogey now which he does. Only drops one. Could have been worse.

5:38 p.m. -- Feels like things have slowed down a little bit. Should we just fast-forward to the Sunday final pairing of Fowler and McIlroy?

5:17 p.m. -- I can't get over how jacked Rory is these days. Every slo-mo out of him looks like he swiped Toby Gerhart's biceps.

5:10 p.m. -- Here's a great shot of that Jason Day par on No. 2 from earlier today.

5:02 p.m. -- This was insane. He needed a "Tiger on 16 at Augusta" rotation there.

5:01 p.m. -- I want to be JP (Rory's caddie). Dude's the baddest guy on the course.

4:29 p.m. -- This made me laugh so, so hard.

4:21 p.m. -- Adam Scott is just an automatic top 10 at majors right now. We'll disregard the fact that most are the backdoor variety.

4:11 p.m. -- Man, this is fun. Lefty banging down flagsticks, Rory and Day trading blows, Furyk doing Furyk stuff, Westy, Mahan, Scott, Snedeker, Stenson. We have a major!

3:58 p.m. -- I see that yank on Rory really affected him on the next hole [hits it 930 yards down the middle].

3:48 p.m. -- Check out the #TourSauce going on here:

3:24 p.m. -- This seems below average for Jason Day:

3:21 p.m. -- Okay, that's pretty cool.

3:10 p.m. -- I think Brandt Snedeker might be playing his way onto the Ryder Cup team which is kind of incredible when you think about where he was at a few months ago.

2:52 p.m. -- Okay, we're one group from Rory and Day, tournament's about to begin.

2:31 p.m. -- Pro Traj!

2:20 p.m. -- I'll pick not today.

1:51 p.m. -- This starter is insane. He's been watching too much Gus Johnson on YouTube, I think.

1:42 p.m. -- Major weekends are so weird. Nothing happens and then it all happens at once at the end.

1:18 p.m. -- Well this stings.

12:57 p.m. -- We could be in for a show today, you guys.

12:22 p.m. -- There's some interesting attire going on at Valhalla today. Here's exhibit No. 1:

12:08 p.m. -- I love short par 4s.

11:37 a.m. -- Rory woke up this morning and was told how much rain dumped on the course at Valhalla. Your reaction, Mr. McIlroy?

11:05 a.m. -- This couldn't be more true.

10:55 a.m. -- I'm going to miss this:

10:28 a.m. -- This is pretty incredible.

9:20 a.m. -- Is Rory going to run away and hid? One person thinks so.

9:17 a.m. -- Good morning, I need coffee like Tiger needs a new driver.
