i had a good shot here to about four feet. bill: here's your second at the 16th. >> this was 7-iron. i had to hit a hard draw from 195 to get it there. but because it was downwind, i wanted to hit something hard. and it just stuck. stuck right there. still couldn't get it inside my playing partner, bernd, he hit some iron shots. this putt here after eagle, looks like it's going to swing and dive right in there and just missed the lip. it would have been nice to finish with another eagle but i'll take a birdie and be a few book. bill: you're saying you're playing the best gol of the year right now. what do you like about your game? >> things started to kind of click. i started to get the ball in play more. started to hit better iron shots. started to putt better. my short game came back.
then i'm more patient, i don't have to go out and force things and show up on the first tee wond forget my game is going to be there. i show up on the range ready and knowing what's going to happen and what to expect. bill: four birdies in the last five holes, 67, congratulations, good luck tomorrow. phil mickelson looking for his seventh pga championship. lowest scoring average in pga history, he's right there. jim: at the 18th. just a moment ago. while we were hearing from phil. third shot for palmer. nick: landed in the fringe. just -- social security a steep, sticky slope there, didn't make t. jim: tomorrow, early coverage coming your way from tnt at 11:00 eastern, then it switches over to cbs coverage, to the

here at 18, it was unplayable, had to take a drop and ended up making a putt from about the same point you see palmer. actually it was on the other side of the cup, made. stricker is at eight under at 6 , he's also not to be ruled out tomorrow system of many possibilities. looking to that second page of the leaderboard. names back there like scott and furyk and westwood, could be a come from behind charge. rory mcilroy looks to be in position here to strike at the 18th. nick: plus there's too many players at the top who you would believe, rory, fowler, they're all going to move forward so for the seven unders, they've got to do something crazy, shoot 64 to post a score that scares the living daylights out of the leaders.
jim: this for par. just gave one away at 17. hat's big. he had a share of the lead for a while on the back nine. nick: can't go backwards one shot because the other guy goes forward two. jim: furyk will be next. rory and jason wait back on the fairway for the green to clear. that's a par for jim. his last birdie came at the
10th. he was drafting just a shot behind the lead at the time. ended up playing the last eight oles two over. >> 208 yards for jason day, up the hill. the wind a little bit into but mostly off to the right. 4-iron. >> that makes sense to me, david. at least it's not a 7 oinch. >> he doesn't think he got it all and he didn't. >> just thrusts his belly at the ball a touch too much sometimes.
jim: will this be another famous 5-iron for rory? what's the club, david? >> i don't know. just over 200 yards left nick: the famous 5-iron. jim: a club that's delivered some of the biggest moments of his career, the 5-iron. >> that was 5-iron. >> might have missed it. jim: he's concerned. >> oh, sticks in the bank and it also comes back down in the bunker. >> just cut it a smidgen thin. jim: let's go right back down to bill. bill: with ricky fowl -- rickie fowler, 67 today, bogey-free a patient kind of round for you today. >> yeah, it was -- i hit it very well on the back nine and kind of had to be patient, couldn't press. and had to accept the pars. i had a lot of good putts a few misreads. didn't get a whole lot out of the round but played a lot of good golf. >> you've been in this position before, all year long, anything
you've learned from those previous experiences that will help you tomorrow? >> i mean, it obviously sounds cliche but the patience is key. shot by shot. the biggest thing for me this year is going through the process and the process the week before to make sure i'm ready to play in the major. the process before each golf shot to make sure my caddy and i have the right conversation. >> looks like you'll play with phil mickelson that will be a relaxing sunday. >> we'll have a good time, that's for sure. >> rickie, thank you very must have. good luck tomorrow. rickie fowler, 67 today. jim: he'll be in the next to last pairing. here's the mcilroy shot. >> no divot. >> didn't quite compress it.
jim: how close was it to getting up and over? nick: stenson made it right on the edge of the green, just a yard. but it's an easy bunker shot. he lines his bunker shots up. so we won't be surprised if it disappears. jim: looking back at the interview with rickie he, looks comfortable now. it's been such a banner year for him in all these majors, to come out and keep repeating these solid rounds with the most pressure situations of the year. >> after his swing changes earlier, i can empathize with him. i went through that moons ago.
i can understand it. to learn to rotate your arms and change your body from tilting to rotating is a massive, massive move. let's see if rory can jar this one. >> nice, clean lie. jim: zimmed under a little too much. -- zimmed under a little too much. nick: firm, wet sand. jim: and now day follows him into the bunker, steps in for his shot. his third. nick: another really good, aggressive bunker player. >> this one is a good deal easier. it's on the upslope. he can just thump that sand wedge in behind it and up in the air. nick: an awful lot of practice swings.
championship three of the last six years. harrington, kaymer, and mcilroy, of course, at kiawah 2012. and an all european final pairing tomorrow with rory and wiesberger. they'll either go into the final round tied or rory will be one in front if he holds it. nick: with this putt, he could miss it right. jim: he's got the lead alone. the way he reacts, that was really important to him. >> how about that intensity charge from after the 12th. jim: he birdies three of the last four.
final round pairing. mcilroy, three-time major championship -- champion, going for back-to-back major wins here. it will be his fourth, still at the age of 25. doesn't turn 26 until next may. wiesberger just making a cut for the second time at a major. in his career. nick: do you get the feeling he's comfortable leading majors? enjoys it, relishes it? jim: i think you said it too. he's got this ability to kick it into some sort of overdrive kind of when he dials it in. when he needs it. jason day looking for the same finish. this for birdie. they both get up and down from out of the bunker. for birdies. and day pulls even with mickelson in a tie for fourth.
that was some adventure out there today wasn't it? jason having to go upstream for a while, downstream on the second, making a -- making a pretty sensational par at the second. rory had some early struggles. seemed to be fractionally off until late stages when again he went into that mode we've seen a few times before. again, 2:00 eastern time, tomorrow, we'll have the fifpblee round coverage with tnt starting the day at -- the final round coverage with tnt having coverage starting at 11:00 a.m. what are you looking for tomorrow nick? nick: the great thing is, so many players are playing great. the international leaderboard.
rory makes six birdies every day. can they beat him? jim: they've had already two great finishes at valhalla in pgas past. maybe there's another one in store for us tomorrow. if saturday is a harbinger of what to expect tomorrow, you don't want to ms. it. wiesberger from out of nowhere, what a performance by him today. 65. rory mcilroy sits on top of the world of golf and on top of the leaderboard through 54 holes at the pga championship. we'll see you tomorrow here on cbs.
