SportsPulse: USA Today Sport Steve DiMeglio discusses the potential head-to-head showdown that Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson are currently planning.

Tiger Woods returns for the second time on Saturday for the third round of the 100th PGA Championship, the last major of the season.

While Brooks Koepka (US Open) and Francisco Molinari (Open Championship) are aiming for their second big title of the year, Jordan Spieth finally wants to end his Grand Slam career.

After 4 – in his second round, Woods goes from 13:21 ET alongside Webb Simpson and Stewart Cink. Follows Woods' third round shot for punch.

Thoughts on the turnaround

Today we see something special. Yesterday's round had that feeling before the rainy season was delayed, but with the choice of Tigers on the way he might eventually take the lead. Of course, if he can avoid the collapse of the Nineties, we are used to seeing this season.

Ranking Update: Brooks Koepka has joined Gary Woodland at 10-under the leaderboard, followed by Tiger, Justin Thomas, Thomas Pieters, Adam Scott, Rickie Fowler and Kevin Kisner at 8-under. [19659009] Hole 9 – Par 4

Handle it. Tear it up. Swirl it. He beats his iron from the tea and it is pure, right in the middle. How well? Stewart Cink's 3-Wood is 15 yards behind TW's Iron. Tigers approach is a bit long and comes to a halt at the edge, after he has reached directly to the needle point. His putt did not make it to the cup, but he still rolled to the left, but he was able to beat two puts to par. 4-under at the turn (8-under for the tournament).

Hole 8 – Par 5

Three shots from the lead: Will he go in two? His ride is unfortunate, lands in the fairway, but jumps in the right direction. He is forced to lay down from there, and it's a great decision, because once again his approach to the green is perfect. He puts it next to the mug with another great view of Birdie. These are five birdies in eight holes, you look confident. 4-under 8 (8-under for the tournament).
