LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A glance at Saturday’s third round of the PGA Championship, played at 7,458-yard, par-71 Valhalla Golf Club (all times EDT):

Leading: Rory McIlroy, who shot 67, tops the board at 13 under.

Pursuing: Bernd Wiesberger at 12 under, followed by Rickie Fowler at 11 under.

Key stat: After the last two major winners began their final rounds with big leads - Martin Kaymer, five shots at the U.S. Open; McIlroy; six at the British - the PGA’s last day will begin with a dozen players within five shots of the leader.

Noteworthy: Wiesberger had only made the cut at a major once before - the 2013 U.S. Open - in five tries, including twice previously at the PGA.

Quoteworthy: “It’s not the biggest lead I’ve ever had. But I’m still in control of this golf tournament.” - McIlroy on his one-shot advantage.

Key tee times: 2:45 p.m. - Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson; 2:55 p.m. - Rory McIlroy, Bernd Wiesberger
