LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Cue up “My Old Kentucky Home”, the horses are headed to the post.

In the home of horseracing, the PGA Championship looks like it’s going to be decided down the backstretch of Valhalla Golf Club on Sunday.

The odds-on favourite, Rory McIlroy, leads the way at 13-under par after a second consecutive four-under par round of 67, but there are also a few longshots in the mix in the run for the Wanamaker Trophy.

Bernd Wiesberger, an Austrian who missed the cut at the PGA Championship the past two years, sits just a shot back following a six-under 65, while Rickie Fowler, who had been dreaming of a final pairing with McIlroy in second consecutive major, is another shot back at 11-under.
