It’s setting up as Stars and Stripes vs the Rainbow Nation in Sunday’s sprint for the Wannamaker as three Americans and three sons of South Africa fill out the top 6 on the leaderboard and make up the final three pairings.
Phil Mickelson, the 50-year old legend, sits 7-under par, one ahead of Brooks Kopeka, who’s at 6 under.
The two American superstars will comprise the last group in Sunday’s finale of the 2021 PGA Championship. They’ll go off at 2:30 pm (est).
South African Louis Oosthuizen and a third American, Kevin Streelman, make up the penultimate pairing. The mixed pair have a tee time of 2:20 pm.
Then two more South Africans fill out the third to last group with Branden Grace and Christiaan Bezuidenhout going off at 2:10 pm.
The next six players are more diverse with two Americans (Gary Woodland and Bryson DeChambeau), alongside Chilean Joaquin Niemann, Paul Casey of England, Korean Sungjae Im, and Corey Conners of Canada.
The 2021 PGA Champion is more than likely to come out of the top-12 on the 54-hole leaderboard, from Mickelson and Koepka at 7- and 6-under par, respectively, down to the trio tied at -1, so here are the tee times and odds for the Sunday’s final six groups at the famed Ocean Course.
