US PGA Championship Round 3 Part 1

"The Monster" was given a bit of a soaking yesterday, bringing the play to a premature end in the third round of the US PGA Championship. Hopefully that will at least soften up the greens for the beleaguered players as the debate about course set up in the majors rumbles on.

One exceedingly happy player must be Andres Romero who got back to the clubhouse with a brilliant course record equalling 65. That great round propelled him back up the leaderboard to lie only 3 shots behind J.B. Holmes, who did not even get out of the traps yesterday. Romero must have a huge advantage going into a marathon Sunday where all but 25 out of the 73 remaining competitors must start or complete their third rounds before tackling the beast again for their final rounds.

Colombia's Camilo Villegas and Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell are also on a charge but it remains to be seen if the interruption will put a stop to their gallop. It could be an exciting day's play today!
