SHEBOYGAN, Wisconsin (AP) — Dustin Johnson has birdied the 17th hole to take the lead at the PGA Championship.

Johnson made a 12-footer on the par-3 to get to 12 under. That puts him a stroke ahead of Bubba Watson, who is already finished, and Martin Kaymer, who scrambled to save par on 18 with a 15-footer.

Watson, playing five groups ahead of Johnson, had gone to the practice range after he finished in hopes of a playoff. But when Johnson made birdie, Watson turned and asked, "Did he make that?"
