PGA Championship 2012: Vijay Singh, Rory McIlroy Take Lead

The leaders are just beginning their rounds at the 2012 PGA Championship, and there has been some slight shuffling at the top of the board. Vijay Singh now shares the lead with Rory McIlroy at 5-under, with Tiger Woods standing alone only one stroke behind. Carl Pettersson has taken a slight tumble after starting the day in a tie for first, bogeying his third hole and dropping into a tie for fourth.

Among the day's big movers are Steve Stricker, David Lynn and Bo Van Pelt, who all currently find themselves part of a seven-way tie for sixth place. Stricker is playing for a spot on the Ryder Cup team, and his 5-under performance in the third round will definitely bolster his resume.

Another Ryder Cup hopeful, Phil Mickelson, has had a quieter day so far. Through six holes, he's shooting par and finds himself in a seven-way tie along with other big names like John Daly and Keegan Bradley.
