Days 1 and 2 provided plenty of intriguing storylines at the 2013 PGA Championship, but the real action starts on Day 3.
That's when the pressure will start to mount as the contenders attempt to separate themselves from the pack.
The Wanamaker Trophy represents the final opportunity for players to claim a major championship in 2013 so the competition down the stretch is sure to be fierce. Here's a look at who sits atop the leaderboard as Saturday's action gets started.
With Jason Dufner attempting to parlay his historic round into a major victory, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson looking to make weekend runs and a slew of surprise contenders looking to remain alive you don't want to miss any of the action.

What to Watch For
Jason Dufner's Encore Performance
To say that Dufner was locked in on Friday would be putting it lightly. He fired a 63, posting a course record that ties him for the best round in major history, per Bleacher Report's Twitter feed.

Dufner's performance gave him the lead at nine-under par. However there's still plenty of golf left to play. As Mike O'Malley of Golf Digest points out, we've been down this road with Dufner at the PGA Championship before.
Dufner had 5-shot lead with 4 to play in 2011 PGA before bogeys at 15-16-17 and birdies by Keegan at 16-17. Since, T4 at last 2 U.S. Opens.— Mike O'Malley (@GD_MikeO) August 9, 2013
Shooting a great round on Day 2 is one thing, but capitalizing on the opportunity to contend is another thing altogether. Whether he can remain hot on Saturday is a key storyline to watch.
Tiger's Final Stand
Woods remains an interesting player to watch on Saturday. He came into the tournament as a favorite but has done nothing to show he can live up the hype.
However, he gets one last chance to put himself in the hunt on Day 3.
It's not that Woods has been awful this week. He's just one-over through the first two rounds. The problem is that the field is posting low scores thanks to favorable course conditions in New York.
A comeback isn't entirely out of the question. Woods had six birdies in two rounds, but has been plagued by inconsistency at Oak Hill; he also has five bogeys and a double. If he can make the right adjustments and play better on the greens he could post a great score to get back in it.
If not, he might as well pack it up because the field is leaving him in the dust.
Adam Scott and Justin Rose Angle for Second Major in 2013
With 12 players within six strokes of Day 2 leader Dufner, there are many with a legitimate shot to claim the Wanamaker Trophy. But Scott and Rose have extra incentive. They could accomplish the rare feat of winning two majors in one year.
Scott won the Masters back in April by scoring 69 in three of four rounds and beating Angel Cabrera in a playoff, while Rose won the U.S. Open by two strokes over the likes of Phil Mickelson and Dufner.
As Jason Sobel of Golf Channel points out, the two are making a strong case to be the player of the year.
Might want to hold off on that "Tiger vs. Phil" talk for Player of the Year. Top of the leaderboard right now: Adam Scott and Justin Rose.— Jason Sobel (@JasonSobelGC) August 9, 2013
Scott, who led after Day 1, is just two strokes behind Dufner entering the third day at seven-under while Rose sits three back at six-under.
With both players proving capable of coming through in the clutch, they're worth keeping an eye on in Day 3.
