The third day of the PGA Championship 2022 is celebrated, the ‘major’ that takes place this year in Southern Hills. In this round of competition, the number of participants has already been reduced, after a cut that was established at +4 strokes over par for the field.
Thus, Jon Rahm and Adri Arnaus continue in the tournament, which no longer has the presence of Sergio García or Pablo Larrazábal. Will Zalatoris is the sole leader with -9, one shot ahead of Mito Pereira, who is -8.
Justin Thomas completes the podium with a -6, while Bubba Watson with -5 is with possibilities to reach the lead. Of course, there are dangerous men like Rory McIlroy with -4 well placed. Far from them is Jon Rahm, who improved with respect to the negative first day of competition, but is still quite a distance from the head.
The one from Barrika saved the cut and is in 41st place with a total of +2 over par in the field. Therefore, he will have to continue to improve in the third lap if he wants to have a chance of achieving a good result on Sunday.
Thus, the best placed Spaniard is Adri Arnaus, who finds himself with the pair of the field in the 23rd position. Arnaus will have the lofty goal of closing in on the top 10, which he is currently two shots away from, during the third round.
Adri reacted after going through some difficult moments in the first lap and made a much more stable second in which he recovered from an initial ‘bogey’ Those who are already eliminated are Sergio García and Pablo Larrazabal.
García signed a +4 in the second round to finish with +7, three strokes from the cut. As for him, Larrazábal finished with a +14 after two very hard-fought days of competition in which he signed 77 shots in each one.
Who managed to make the cut late in the day, after an improvement on the final holes, was Tiger Woods. The American signed two birdies in the last six holes to tie his classification with +3 (53rd position). Dustin Johnson was eliminated after finishing with a +6 aggregate and will not play the weekend.
