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.

But winning his first major will again require clearing the world's best player, a tall order considering McIlroy isn't letting up.

Then again neither is the 25-year-old former Oklahoma State star from California, who shot 4-under 67 on Saturday in the third round at Valhalla. He stands alone in third, two shots behind McIlroy at 11-under 202.
