Following the conclusion of round two at the PGA Championship, Scottie Scheffler, Corey Conners, and Viktor Hovland are tied for the lead at 5-under par.

Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Suh (3-under) sit in a tie for fourth, with Brooks Koepka and Callum Tarren (T6) within striking distance at 2-under.

Sungjae Im, Jason Day and Matt Fitzpatrick are among the top players that missed the cut at 5-over and failed to qualify for the weekend.

In this article, we’ll provide a matchup tip for round three.

PGA Championship Day 3 prediction: H2H Matchup

The following betting tip is for Brooks Koepka to record a lower score than Bryson DeChambeau in round three.

After tipping Koepka to defeat Rory McIlroy yesterday successfully in round two, I’m taking the two-time PGA champion (2018-2019) once again. Koepka shot a 4-under 66 (low score of the day) on Friday to climb back into contention. DeChambeau recorded a 1-over 71.

Koepka and DeChambeau are paired together for round three and will tee off at 2:30 p.m. ET.

What was once one of the most notable feuds (Koepka vs. DeChambeau) on the PGA Tour which involved jabs left and right from both parties, as well as fans calling DeChambeau “Brooksy” has been put to rest.

Over the past two years (primarily since 2022) Koepka has performed much better than his compatriot and has even become “friends” with the fellow LIV Tour member.

Since October 2022, Koepka has won twice on the LIV Tour and captured five top-11 finishes. During the same span, his competitor has only achieved one top 10 (last week) and hasn’t won since the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March 2021.

The differences in finishes are significant. Koepka (undefeated) has done better four times and tied once (4-0-1).

At the last major championship, the Masters, Koepka held the lead through the first three days and finished in a tie for second. DeChambeau recorded back-to-back rounds of 74 and missed the cut.

The chart below compares the two players’ scores during the third round of their previous five starts.

In the last 15 majors the two have played in, Koepka has recorded a better result 12 times (80%). When DeChambeau won the 2020 U.S. Open, Koepka wasn’t in the field.
