Jim Furyk shot a two-under-par 68 on Saturday in the third round of the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, N.Y, and will take a one-shot lead over Jason Dufner into the final round. So far this year, none of the 54-hole leaders at the three majors - - the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open -- have held on to win. Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open champion, is at nine under 201. A pair of Swedes, Henrik Stenson (seven under) and Jonas Blixt (six under) are close behind.

They started near high noon, two gunslingers and a sniper. They were ready, willing and hoping to be able to bring the enemy to its knees, the enemy being the hallowed and harrowing Riviera Country Club. They were Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose and Jim Furyk, a threesome of big-name golfers and a popular choice for the galleries on the second day of the Northern Trust Open. The attraction was obvious. Two of the players, Rose and Furyk, were major winners, each having a U.S. Open title in their resume.

One last birdie for Jim Furyk put him one more stroke under par, which he found more gratifying than being in a share of the lead with Jonathan Byrd on Friday at the Memorial at Dublin, Ohio. A blue sky and a warm sun translated into fast greens at Muirfield Village, leading to a crammed leaderboard going into a weekend loaded with possibilities. Tiger Woods had his worst score in nearly two years -- a two-over 74 -- and still was only six shots behind.

ROCHESTER, N.Y.  - Throughout the week, Jim Furyk had gently chided reporters for asking about his flameout at last year's U.S. Open. Not making cuts at this year's U.S. and British Opens only added to the story line. So after bogeys on Nos. 17 and 18, did Furyk lose the PGA Championship? Or after a clutch par putt on No. 15 and a must-make birdie ahead of Jason Dufner's tap-in on No. 16, did Furyk make Dufner win it? "I lost that tournament," Furyk said of the 2012 U.S. Open.

Maybe it was appropriate that Tiger Woods' charity golf tournament, so emotionally charged when it started with the saga of Woods' personal affairs, ultimately would end up in the hands of Jim Furyk. So stoic and single-minded about his game that he couldn't remember blowing last year's Chevron World Challenge, Furyk this year shut out the noise about the problems afflicting the world's No. 1 golfer -- including Woods' withdrawal from his own tournament -- and went about the business of playing winning golf.

ATLANTA - No statement was necessary. At the same time, Jim Furyk sure didn't mind writing down all those 3s. "To be able to write '3' on your card nine times in the first 11 holes was a lot of fun," Furyk said after Friday's six-under-par 64 propelled him to a one-stroke lead over Justin Rose at the midway point of the Tour Championship. Furyk strung together seven 3s to begin his day at East Lake Golf Club, then tossed in a pair of 4s as he made the turn in six-under 29. Heading to the back nine, the 42-year-old pro began with two more 3s before the momentum stalled.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - With apologies to David Hearn, anonymity's recent run in several PGA Championships dissolved a bit in the rain Thursday at Oak Hill Country Club. At least for one day. After a first round delayed 70 minutes by weather, Jim Furyk and Adam Scott sat atop the leaderboard of the 95th PGA Championship at five-under-par 65. Both are seeking their second major championship. Behind them sat Lee Westwood, the Ryder Cup veteran whose nickname could be The Best Player Never to Have Won a Major, and Hearn, a journeyman from Canada, at four under.

Steve Stricker birdied his first two holes, and Tiger Woods could see what was coming. Walking to the next tee Friday at the TPC Boston, Woods said to his caddie, "He's going to shoot 62." Woods' instincts were off by one. Stricker ran off five consecutive birdies and only once came close to a bogey in an eight-under-par 63 to share the first-round lead with Jim Furyk in the Deutsche Bank Championship at Norton, Mass. Furyk, without a victory in more than two years, shot his 63 in the afternoon.

* Hole: 16. * Yardage: 451. * Par: 4. * Stroke average: 4.08 * Rank: 11th. * Key fact: Jim Furyk got up-and-down out of a greenside bunker to save par. With a chance to take a share of the lead, Vijay Singh missed a 15-footer for birdie and wound up with a three-putt bogey, beginning a collapse that left him five strokes behind Furyk.

Andrew Magee and Jim Furyk shot five-under-par rounds of 67--one better than halfway leader Dillard Pruitt--to move into a three-way tie at the top Saturday after three rounds of the Northern Telecom Open. They are at 13-under 203. Furyk, a former University of Arizona golfer who has played the 7,184-yard, par-72 Tucson National course more than 100 times, had five birdies on the back nine. "I felt like I had some good shots on the front nine that I didn't get rewarded for," he said.

Jason Dufner finished bogey-bogey on the two most difficult holes on the Oak Hill Country Club course near Rochester, N.Y., and that was good enough to claim his first major title with a victory in the PGA Championship on Sunday. Dufner shot a final round two-under-par 68 to finish two shots ahead of Jim Furyk, who shot a final-round 71. Dufner, who received a huge hug from his wife, Amanda, as well as a hug from Keegan Bradley, had a four-day total of 10-under 270 in the season's final major.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Beep, beep, beep. That's just the sound from moving day at the PGA Championship, where several of the second-round leaders shifted to reverse and backed up on a sun-splashed Saturday at Oak Hill Country Club. Wind appeared for the first time. It swirled just enough to sweep away the plethora of birdie chances that had defined the first two rounds. Only two of the final six golfers broke par 70. One of them, Jim Furyk, will take a one-shot lead over second-round leader Jason Dufner into Sunday's final round.

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - At least Tiger Woods' defiance is in major championship form. "I'm still right there," Woods said after shooting a one-over 71 Thursday to trail Adam Scott and Jim Furyk by six strokes after first-round play in the PGA Championship at Oak Hill. Woods carded two birdies in his first six holes but played the final 12 in three over. That included a bogey on the par-five fourth, Thursday's easiest hole, and a double-bogey six on the ninth, his final hole. "Overall, I played really well," Woods said.

ARDMORE, Pa. - Jim Furyk was really looking forward to playing the U.S. Open at Merion. Maybe too much. Again. The West Chester, Pa., native now must look back on another disappointing showing in the Philadelphia region. "I had four events in the Philly area, and I never really played well in any of those," said Furyk, 43, who didn't exactly celebrate the 10-year anniversary of his U.S. Open victory at Olympia Fields. Furyk finished up a 77 on Friday morning and followed it in the afternoon with a 79, and he will miss the cut by a projected eight strokes.

When he was a kid in Pennsylvania, Jim Furyk would bug his father all the time about wanting to try golf. Mike Furyk kept telling his son that he wasn't old enough. Mike Furyk had been a club pro, spending the usual long hours to get the job done. He worked on weekends and holidays and felt bad because he couldn't take his family on vacations, as most everyone else could. Mike knew something had to change.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Experience wanted. Other than perhaps "Seeking hot putter," those are the words that would be in bold if U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III were to post a help-wanted entry for his remaining four roster spots. "It's great to have the youth," Love said Monday, pleased with his eight automatic qualifiers from a points race that concluded at the PGA Championship. "Now we need some experience to go with it. " Currently, the roster Love is building for next month's matches at Medinah Country Club in Illinois includes only two men who have played in more than two Ryder Cups: Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.
