PGA Championship Standings 2012: Players Who Could Steal a Victory from Leaders

The third round of the 2012 PGA Championship isn't quite finished, as play was suspended on Saturday and will be resumed on Sunday at 7:45 a.m. ET.

With just a little more than one round remaining, there are three golfers who are just behind the leaders and could make a push to win the event in the fourth round.

If you'd like to follow these guys as they try to top the leaders, play begins on TNT at 7:45 a.m. ET.

Bo Van Pelt

After an impressive round of golf on Saturday, Van Pelt went from T24 to T5. He went from two-over to three-under and is now within striking distance.

While he might not be able to pull out another round at five-under, he has proven that he can deal with this course.

He's currently two strokes back of the leaders, but one more good round could have him holding the trophy when it's all said and done.

Carl Pettersson

A poor eight holes in the third round has Pettersson sitting at four-under, just like he did after two rounds. However, now he can regroup and get back to the form that had him tied for first heading into the weekend.

Pettersson has proven that he can play well on this course, but he failed to do so in the beginning of his third round.

Having play suspended was a great thing for Pettersson, as now he will try to mount a comeback from two strokes down to win the Championship.

Tigers Woods

Never count Tiger out.

Sure, he's been struggling in his first seven holes, giving back three strokes after being four-under through two rounds.

However, even from five strokes back Tiger has enough time to make up a ton of ground, and a flash of brilliance or two could help him win his first major in four years.

No, I don't expect him to win, but he has a chance from the middle of the pack.
