Can anyone catch Brooks Koepka?

Still.

Koepka had a 7-shot lead entering Round 3 of the PGA Championship on Saturday following an historic run thus far at Bethpage Black.

He now heads into Sunday with that same seven-shot lead over four golfers tied for second: Harold Varner III, Jazz Janewattananond, Luke List and Dustin Johnson.

The 29-year-old, three-time major champion and defending PGA Championship winner shot a 36-hole, major-tournament record of 128 in the first two rounds of the year's second major.

Any early-round excitement that might have filled the gallery early on Saturday was smote once Tiger Woods finished his second round at +5 overall, one shot afoul of the cut line.

6:29 p.m.: Luke List finished the third round with back-to-back bogeys. His bogey on 18 means he to shoots a 69 on Saturday and is in a three-way tie for third entering the final round.

6:27 p.m.: With a birdie on 18, Harold Varner III jumped to T-3 to end the third round. Varner shot a 67 for the second-straight day.

6:24 p.m.: Luke List recorded a bogey on 17 to T-2 with Dustin Johnson at 6 under.

6:07 p.m.: Dustin Johnson's had some trouble on the back nine, but maybe he's turning it around. Johnson bogeyed holes 10, 11 and 14, but recorded birdies on 12 and 15. His birdie on 15 puts him at 6 under, one stroke behind Luke List in second.

5:40 p.m.: Jordan Spieth birdied No 12 and is T-8 at 3 under. He is 2 over through 12 holes on the round.

5:38 p.m.: That's three-straight birdies for Luke List. List made his third birdie in a row on 14 to sit in solo second at 7 under, five strokes behind Koepka. List is 3 under through 14 holes.

5:24 p.m.: List recorded a birdie on 13 and Johnson recorded a birdie on 12. They both jump to T-2 at 6 under.

5:11 p.m.: Koepka recorded back-to-back bogeys on 9 and 10 for the first time on the PGA Tour since The Players Championship. He sits at 12 under through 10 holes and is even par for the round.

5:10 p.m.: Janewattananond joins List and Johnson at 5 under after bogeying 14.

5:09 p.m.: Luke List birdied No. 12 to sit T-2 with Janewattananond at 5 under.

3:23 p.m.: Dustin Johnson adds a birdie on No. 4, his second of the round, and moves into solo second place, seven shots behind his pal. D.J. may be the only golfer within reach equipped to keep pace or gain on the powerful Koepka.

3:15 p.m.: A birdie at No. 2 has elevated Koepka to 13 under. The lead is now eight shots. What is routinely called "moving day" is on the verge of becoming "Coronation Day." There are still 34 holes to play for Kopeka. The possibilities are historically tantalizing.

3:02 p.m.: He's almost human after all. Koepka squanders a perfect birdie opportunity at No. 1 after his birdie putt sails 20 inches past the hole. Settles for par.
