Day 3: Sharma, Lahiri miss the cut as Brooks Koepka leads the PGA Championship

Posted by Admin 13 Aug 2018

Anirban Lahiri and Shubhankar Sharma missed the cut at the PGA Championship after finishing at 3-over. Lahiri shot rounds of 70 and 73, while debutant Sharma managed a 74 in the second after a 1-under 69 in the first.

Sharma was 1-under through seven holes in the second round and 2-under for the tournament when play was stopped on Friday. However, it turned out to be a difficult Saturday as he lost five strokes to miss the cut. 



American Brooks Koepka leads the US PGA Championship going into the final day at Bellerive, despite two late bogeys reducing his advantage to two shots. The US Open champion, who had led by five shots, carded a four-under 66 to stay ahead of Australia's Adam Scott.

American pair Rickie Fowler and Gary Woodland, along with Spain's Jon Rahm, are nine under as they all chase a maiden major victory.


Tiger Woods, who won his 14th major in 2008, shot 66 to end on eight under.

Seven of the top 12 players have already won one of the four majors - the Masters, The Open Championship, the US Open and US PGA Championship - while the presence of top-10 players Fowler and Rahm adds to a high-quality leaderboard.



Ireland's Shane Lowry is also eight under after a 69, with a quartet of Englishman - Eddie Pepperell, Ian Poulter, Matt Wallace and Justin Rose - leading the British chase on five under.



Wallace moved up the leaderboard thanks to a hole-in-one on the par-three 16th, describing it as the "best shot of my life".



Three-time major winner Jordan Spieth's chances of completing the career Grand Slam of all four majors with victory in St Louis looks to be slim after a 71 left him eight shots behind Koepka.
