In much calmer afternoon conditions at Southern Hills, Will Zalatoris (65) and Mito Pereira (64) put on a display of glorious golf to cruise to the top of the leaderboard at -9 and -8 respectively. Zalatoris hit arguably the shot of the day at the 17th. After splatting his tee shot into the right hand rough, Zalatoris demonstrated his power and creativity with a high fade over the trees to seven feet out of heavy rough.
Justin Thomas moved a shot ahead of Rory McIlroy after registering an excellent 67 at Southern Hills.
U.S. golfer, Cameron Young could have the pedigree to win a major in his first year on the PGA Tour. Having failed to miss the cut in his major debut at The Masters, the 25-year-old from New York has finished in the top three of both tournaments since. At 65-1, he’s an excellent outside bet to go one better at Southern Hills.
