CHARLOTTE — Golf fans tuning into final round coverage of the 2017 PGA Championship will see a leaderboard dotted with names they’re no doubt familiar with. Kevin Kisner, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Thomas, Louis Oosthuizen, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day a touch further back.

But sandwiched in-between them all is Chris Stroud, a 35-year-old journeyman with a real shot of stealing the major away from all of them.

“It’s just a dream come true to be here, to be up here, talking to you guys at the PGA Championship, one of the greatest tournaments in the world,” he said in his press conference after his third round. “I’ve been waiting on this a long time. I didn’t think it was going to take me this long but I’m glad I’m here.”
