They say good things come to those who wait. Today some of those god things came to Rory McIlroy. He finished his 3rd round in the PGA Championship by making birdie at the 17th hole and chipped in for birdie at the 18th.

McIlroy is at 3 under par and with a good round tomorrow, he could win this thing. The leaders have fallen back today and this is the best thing that has happened to McIlroy all season. You could see the excitement that has been missing this year, appear on McIlroy’s face just off the 18th green.

5 or 6 under par could be the winning score at this years PGA. If that is the case McIlroy is already in the mix. In his round today, he made 4 birdies and only one bogie. There is nothing that brings a golfer back to the course for their next round like making a birdie on the final hole.

Tomorrow’s 4th round is going to be exciting for McIlroy who hasn’t been in the mix often this year. We all know what this kid is capable of when he has his confidence. If he can keep the ball on the fairway tomorrow and hit some crisp iron shots, he could walk off the course owning the Championship trophy.

Of course some others may need to move back a bit for that to happen, but the way things are going today, it could happen.
