Round 3 recap of the 2014 PGA Championship
All the tweets, GIFs, videos, and commentary you can handle here from the third round at Valhalla.
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.
Before this week, Bernd Wiesberger had never broken par in any round in a major.— Justin Ray (@JustinRayGC) August 9, 2014
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.
I hate when guys yank the shit out of a putt and back up and look at the green like they misread it?? WTF. Tap it in and get off the green!!— Mark Calcavecchia (@MarkCalc) August 9, 2014
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.
Intro'd myself to Bubba Watson as a merciless critic of Fri's behavior. He thanked me. "I need to be held accountable."— Dave Kindred (@DaveKindred) August 9, 2014
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.
This is the 431st major championship ever played. There's never been a score better than 63. That's going to change someday. Maybe today.— Jason Sobel (@JasonSobelGC) August 9, 2014
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.
On the completion of my round yesterday my walking scorer asked me what course I was a head pro at.... #playbetter— Scott Stallings (@stallingsgolf) August 9, 2014
12:57 p.m. -- We could be in for a show today, you guys.
Golfers on the course are a combined 24 under so far. And these are the guys who barely made the cut!— Kyle Porter (@KylePorterCBS) August 9, 2014
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.
This Bubba-Thorbjorn Olesen marquee group is brought to you by Tiger missing the cut.— Shane Bacon (@shanebacon) August 9, 2014
10:55 a.m. -- I'm going to miss this:
10:28 a.m. -- This is pretty incredible.
Rickie Fowler: can join Tiger ('00, '05) & Jack ('71 & '73) as only players to finish top-5 in all 4 majors in season in modern era.— Justin Ray (@JustinRayGC) August 9, 2014
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.
