Tracking Ryan Moore at the PGA Championship for Aug. 15, 2015

This week: PGA Championship, Thursday through Sunday, Whistling Straits, Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

Second-round score: 2-under-par 70.

Third-round score: 3-over 75.

Position: Moore (2-over 218) is tied for 64th, 17 strokes behind leader Jason Day (15-under 201).

Recap: Moore finished his second round in the morning with two pars to shoot 70, then went out for the third round under superb scoring conditions and fell back. It started with a bogey on the first hole, a relatively straightforward par 4 where he pushed his drive into a fairway bunker. The Puyallup golfer battled back with three birdies to get to even par on his round through 14 holes, but he sputtered at the end with bogeys at No. 15 (drive into right bunkers, had to lay up second shot on par-4 hole), No. 17 (tee shot at par 3 landed in a front-right greenside bunker) and No. 18 (approach shot went into front greenside bunker).

Tee time Sunday: 6:30 a.m. (PDT) off the first tee.
