This is Garrett Tucker and I will be with you to cover Sunday's PGA Championship at Whistling Straits. I hope you are all looking for a good day in golf!

Yesterday, we saw Nick Watney come out of the gates strong and he now leads by three strokes over young guns Dustin Johnson and Rory Mcllroy.

Can he keep it up, or will the future of the PGA Tour catch him?

Along with that, here are some more questions I leave you with:

How will mother nature effect the field?

Will we see a surprise player make a late surge?

How will Tiger and Phil finish up?

Martin Kaymer becomes the second German to ever win a major.

I would like to thank all of those that joined me for the last two days of some great golf action. I'm signing off until next time.

7:14 CST: Martin Kaymer sinks that putt and he wins the 2010 PGA Championship!

7:09 CST: Watson looks to be falling off and killing himself on the 18th. Not a good decision on that drop-ball in my opinion.

How unlucky is that?! Watson needed to hole that and it goes in and out!

6:59 CST: Wow that is going to really hurt Bubba Watson.

6:51 CST: It's going to all be decided on the 18th. We're tied at -1 right now.

6:40 CST: Bubba Watson birdies on the tenth hole to take the early lead.

6:23 CST: Well, it seems as if Dustin Johnson will have to erase the five on his card from the 18th and change it to a seven.

Just to say, the PGA loses my respect because of that. It's ridiculous. That was by no means a bunker. Since when do fans in the gallery watch from a "bunker?"

6:15 CST: The PGA had better not penalize Dustin Johnson for that "grounding." It will be absolutely ridiculous!

6:09 CST: Johnson finishes it up after two-putting.

Dustin Johnson, Martin Kaymer, and Bubba Watson will now be duking it out in a three-player playoff.

6:05 CST: Dustin Johnson continues to baffle me.

Nick Watney finishes with an 81 today. Tough luck for him.

6:00 CST: Tough luck for Rory Mcllroy. Misses the birdie of the 18th and will finish -10.

You can only think about all the chances he had Thursday and the putts he missed today.

5:54 CST: Dustin Johnson starts off the 18th terrible. He'll keep it interesting right here because of that.

Will he continue to be clutch?

5:52 CST: Martin Kaymer converts par on 18 and now he just has to wait.

5:47 CST: Dustin Johnson takes the lead with a birdie on 17! Clutch putting! He has three birdies in his last five holes.

5:40 CST: Rory Mcllroy needs a birdie on 18 to have any hopes of winning this as he sits at -10 for the tournament.

Zach Johnson finishes at -10 for the tournament. Looks like he'll miss an automatic Ryder Cup spot, but he still can make it on the team.

Martin Kaymer barely misses the green there. Very interesting.

5:37 CST: Right when I say that about Johnson he comes back and is tied for the lead.

5:28 CST: Mcllroy could have had a birdie on 16 to tie for the lead, but will settle for par.

It looks like Dustin Johnson is playing himself out of contention. Not as bad as at Pebble Peach, but I say he's out.

Jason Dufner becomes the first to birdie on the 18th hole.

5:23 CST: Bubba Watson has set the stage for everyone else. Get to -11 or you fall to Bubba!

5:15 CST: No. 17 is killing everyone right now.

Martin Kaymer wasn't even close on that birdie putt on 16. He needs this par to stay in a good position.

5:10 CST: Zach Johnson birdies to go to -10.

Rory Mcllroy bogeys and falls back to -10.


5:02 CST: We now have a three-wat tie for first place: Martin Kaymer, Bubba Watson, and Rory Mcllroy are all tied at -11.

4:58 CST: Bubba Watson with a nice save off the side, now he needs a miracle to sink this par putt on 17.

Holes 17 and 18 are going to be the factors in who is going to win this. You have to at least make par on these two if you're wanting a win.

4:53 CST: Rory Mcllroy birdies again and is now a stroke off the lead.

This is going to get interesting!

4:47 CST: Bubba Watson barely misses his eagle putt on 16! Should be interesting to see how he finishes up. He is now tied for the lead with that birdie.

Dustin Johnson pulls within two strokes with a birdie on 13.

Martin Kaymer has yet to have any blemishes on his scorecard; he has three birdies and the rest pars.

4:42 CST: If Rory Mcllroy could putt, he'd easily be our leader today. However, you can't forget that first day where he struggled.

Bubba Watson is set up really well for an eagle on 16. This will be huge for the outcome of the championship.

4:36 CST: Bubba Watson continues to hit these HUGE drives. I never knew someone could hit a golfball that far!

He could use a birdie here on 16. Two birdies on the last three holes would put him in a good position.

4:31 CST: Watson just misses a birdie putt on 13. That would have put him in a tie with Kaymer for the lead.

Nick Watney is nine-over for the day! Wow. Not a good finish for this youngster.

4:15 CST: Bubba Watson pulls to one stroke of the lead.

3:54 CST: Rory Mcllroy is coming on strong through the back nine. He gets a birdie and is now back to ten-under.

3:46 CST: Kaymer is starting to challenge the others to come get him. They may run out of time and luck with this wind.

Vijay Singh finishes at even par as he shoots a 76, just like in 2004 when he won this in a playoff.

3:43 CST: Martin Kaymer is set up for another birdie to gain another stroke.

3:37 CST: Steve Elkington and Zach Johnson are making runs towards Martin Kaymer now. Should be interesting!

3:22 CST: Dustin Johnson misses a par putt and will lose a stroke to Martin Kaymer, our leader as we head into the back nine.

3:17 CST: The wind is killing everyone right now.

3:06 CST: Tiger finishes at two-under for the tournament with a 73 in the Final Round.

2:57 CST: Rory Mcllroy has yet to find a birdie. He seems to be finishing like he started on Thursday.

Tiger hits a nice shot out of the rough on 18 to get back into good position. Thank goodness he's almost done!

2:47 CST: Jason Day birdies on six and is now a shot off the lead.

2:38 CST: Jim Furyk is doing well while the leaders are having trouble. He gets another birdie on seven and is now only a stroke back at -10.

2:34 CST: Jim Furyk converts a birdie on six to go to nine-under. He is two strokes off the lead.

2:32 CST: The wind is really blowing right now. Whoever can beat the wind will come away victorious.

Jason Day gets a bogey and will lose a stroke off the lead.

2:21 CST: Bubba Watson is another to watch today. He showed us Thursday that he an play on this course. He's only two strokes back right now.

2:16 CST: Nick Watney could really use a birdie here on four to take sole possession of the lead.

1:57 CST: Jason Day could not get a share of the lead, but he is still a shot back.

Bubba Watson has a nice approach shot and has a shot at eagle. If he makes that, he will go to nine-under, two shots back of the lead.

1:47 CST: Nick Watney is pulling a Dustin Johnson from the U.S. Open; Watney opens the day with a double-bogey and Johnson has now made a strike at the lead. Both are tied at -11.

1:43 CST: Dustin Johnson looks to be giving Nick Watney a run for his money as Johnson is really coming out of the gate good. Watney, however, isn't looking good.

Jason Day and Martin Kaymer are looking to get to double figures and move into second place. They are both now three strokes off the lead.

1:39 CST: Rory Mcllroy just had an amazing save on one to get a par. Could have easily had a double-bogey.

Liang starts off with a bogey after missing a short putt.

1:35 CST: Rory Mcllroy isn't looking too good to start. First shot went into the bunker and then his next was over-shot and he is in another bunker.

Nick Watney and Dustin Johnson have now teed off.

1:26 CST: Rory Mcllroy and Wen-Chong Liang have both now teed off. Mcllroy is coming out aggressive using a driver on one where it isn't necessary. He'll keep it interesting.

1:18 CST: Zach Johnson birdies on one to go to nine-under.

Jason Day and Martin Kaymer have both now teed off; both could use a birdie to start out on one.

1:11 CST: The wind is going to be a huge factor as the days goes on, so those that have later tee times could be in trouble. Am I saying Nick Watney will not win?

Nah, but definitely watch out for the wind and how it will effect everyone as the day progresses.

1:05 CST: Phil Mickelson is playing strong, as he has converted two straight birdies on the back nine.

The leaders will be teeing off shortly, so make sure to tune in!

12:45 CST: Tiger settles for a three-putt bogey. Not a good sign.

Brian Gay hits a great birdie shot to move to even par on the day.

12:37 CST: Ernie Els and Simon Khan have started and both have good approaches to one.

Like Phil, Tiger is trying to make a run as he has started out well, especially with a birdie on seven. He is at five-under for the tournament.

12:35 CST: Phil has looked good today. Probably his best round of the week.

12:32 CST: I apologize, I have had some technical difficulties this morning, but let's get started!
