PGA Championship leaderboard: Brooks Koepka on the brink of title defence with seven shot lead

Brooks Koepka is on the verge of defending his PGA Championship title as he takes a seven shot lead into the final day.

Koepka, who successfully defended the US Open last year, shot an even par 70 after rounds of 63 and 65 earlier in the week. Back-to-back bogeys either side of the turn on Saturday, his first consecutive dropped shots on tour since the Players Championship in March, hinted at a potential wobble but the Floridian does not falter in Majors, having one three of his last seven and finished second at the Masters last month.

Rory McIlroy made the weekend by just one shot, but made little ground on those above him with a one under par 69 leaving him 14 shots shy of Koepka.

England's Matt Wallace matched Koepka's round on the day and stayed at four under par, taking the shot of the day for a magnificent blind approach on his way to a birdie three on the 15th.

Here is the leaderboard ahead of the final day at the 101st PGA Championship...
