Former world number one Dustin Johnson charged into the lead on a thrilling third day at the 2020 US PGA Championship in San Francisco.

The lead changed hands several times during the penultimate round, with the American hitting eight birdies in a five-under 65 to move to nine under.

Scottie Scheffler also shot a 65 at TPC Harding Park to trail by one with Cameron Champ, who hit a 67.

Paul Casey is two shots back, alongside defending champion Brooks Koepka.

English compatriots Justin Rose and Tommy Fleetwood are also still in the mix a shot further back on six under par after both posting 70s.

The pair were two shots behind the overnight leader, China’s Li Haotong, whose three-over 73 saw him drop to five under for the week.

Fleetwood was also set to lose ground but claimed two birdies in the final three holes to salvage a level-par 70 and keep himself firmly in contention heading into the final day.

The 102nd US PGA was put back from May because of the coronavirus pandemic and is being played with no spectators.
