The American sank a hat-trick of birdie putts at the seventh, eighth and ninth to hit the turn at 14-under-par for the championship.

Louis Oosthuizen had led after every round this week, but the South African looks set to be the bridesmaid once more at a Major as he was two over for his first nine holes to slip back to 10 under.
