LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (Gary B. Graves/AP) — Rickie Fowler is giving himself so many chances in the majors, he's bound to break through one of these days.

He has been the runner-up in the past two majors and was fifth at the Masters, so it's not shocking that Fowler is within reach of leader Rory McIlory at the PGA Championship.

Wiesberger, it turns out, is an accomplished skier. But at the moment, he'd like to be better known for his golf. After following up back-back-to-back 68s with a 65 in the third round to reach 12 under, Wiesberger will get the chance when he goes off in the final pairing Sunday with leader Rory McIlroy in the season's final major.
