Halfway through the 2022 PGA Championship, the leaderboard is stacked, and the competition is fierce. Southern Hills has been a tremendous test for the best golfers in the world thus far, especially given the diverse conditions that have been faced in the morning and afternoon sessions through the first two rounds.
Winds are calmer Saturday, which should lead to more even scores across the board on Moving Day as contenders begin to truly show themselves ahead of the final 18 holes. Will the top two on the leaderboard after 36 holes -- with no PGA Tour wins between them -- remain in pole position, or will some of the best golfers in the game like Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy reassert themselves?
After shooting one of the best rounds of the day Friday, 25-year-old American up-and-comer Will Zalatoris will take the coures as the 36-hole leader at 9 under, one stroke clear of second-place Mito Pereira. Every major championship winner at Southern Hills has led or co-led after 36 holes, which puts Zalatoris in great company if history is to be considered.
Right on his heels, though, is a star-studded leaderboard including Thomas, Bubba Watson and McIlroy, all of whom began the day within five shots of the lead. Thomas posted matching 67s to open the tournament, while Watson shot the round of the day Friday with a 63, and McIlroy took a tumble from his hot start with a 71 but remains in contention.
