Don’t blink or you’ll miss a lead change at PGA

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — Dustin Johnson has birdied the 17th hole to take the lead at the PGA Championship.

Johnson made a 12-footer on the par-3 to get to 12 under. That puts him a stroke ahead of Bubba Watson, who is already finished, and Martin Kaymer, who scrambled to save par on 18 with a 15-footer.

Watson, playing five groups ahead of Johnson, had gone to the practice range after he finished in hopes of a playoff. But when Johnson made birdie, Watson turned and asked, “Did he make that?”

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — Bubba Watson has finished his round at the PGA Championship, and must now wait to see if 11 under will hold up or get him into a playoff.

Martin Kaymer is also at 11 under, but the German, playing three groups behind Watson, still has three holes left. Steve Elkington and Zach Johnson are at 10 under with a hole to play. Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson also are at 10 under, but they have two more holes to try and close the gap.
