CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Latest on the PGA Championship (all times local):
The co-leaders of the PGA Championship are on the course for the third round.
The final group of Kevin Kisner, Hideki Matsuyama and Jason Day went off at 2 p.m. Kisner and Matsuyama began the round sharing the lead at 8 under. Day was joined by Chris Stroud at two strokes back.
It’s hard enough to make an eagle at Quail Hollow.
It’s even more difficult for two players in the same threesome to do it on back-to-back shots on the same hole.
Marc Leishman chipped in from 85 feet from the back of the green for an eagle on the par 5 10th hole on Saturday. Not to be outdone, Billy Horschel followed a few seconds later by making eagle on a chip from 29 feet from the front of the green.
The other player in the threesome Jason Dufner must have felt a little embarrassed — he only managed a par.
The only other eagle on the day belongs to Hideto Tanihara.

Spieth entered the third round of the PGA Championship 11 shots back and needing a big round to get back into contention. Instead, he’s heading in the opposite direction after making bogey on two of the first five holes. He’s currently 5 over for the tournament and 13 shots back of the leaders.
Spieth was hoping to become the youngest player to win all four majors. But he followed a first-round 70 with a 75 on Friday to fall back in the pack.
Instead of making up ground in the PGA Championship, Bernd Wiesberger missed the cut for the first time in a year.
Wiesberger was on the cut line of 5-over par when he returned to complete the rain-delayed second round at Quail Hollow. He had three holes to play, including the two easiest holes on the front nine. But he missed a 7-foot birdie on No. 7, failed to birdie No. 8 with a wedge in his hand and then fell out of the top 70 and ties by three-putting for bogey on the ninth hole. He shot 75 and finished at 6-over 148.
That ended his streak of 28 consecutive cuts made dating to last year’s PGA Championship.
Adam Scott, meanwhile, was spared a missed cut. If Wiesberger had…
