The pairings are set for Saturday’s third round at the 2021 PGA Championship, and there are some great ones ahead on Moving Day. Phil Mickelson and Louis Oosthuizen share the lead halfway through the tournament at 5 under, and Brooks Koepka sits just one shot back of that duo as he looks to win his third PGA Championship in the last four years.
The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island has already proven to be a fickle beast, especially when the wind picks up. How will these stars attempt to slay it over the weekend? Let’s start at the end with the five-time major champion Mickelson and one-time major champion Oosthuizen. They have two of the more unique, interesting swings (and games) in the sport over the last two decades, and it’s a tremendous third-round final pairing. They’ll push and pull on each other all day, Oosthuizen with his short, stately move and Lefty with his long, lumbering swing. They’ll score differently and get it done in various ways, but two great champions with juxtaposed games is always a thrilling proposition.
Ahead of those two, Rory McIlroy and Adam Hadwin will play together. So will Tyrrell Hatton and Scottie Scheffler. Then you have Tony Finau and Patrick Cantlay, which should be interesting. Rounding out the intrigue is a great Collin Morikawa-Abraham Ancer pairing as well as Bubba Watson-Will Zalatoris and Ian Poulter-Shane Lowry. Koepka links up with Branden Grace in the penultimate tee time.
Toss in one of the great major tracks in recent memory, and Saturday is going to be an absolute show as the leaders (and the chasers) try to run down the second major championship of 2021.
Here’s a look at all the tee times and pairings for Saturday’s third round at Kiawah Island.
