Stewart Cink's bogey-free 66 moved him from a tie for 16th to a tie for third. "You know, I never thought I wouldn't find myself here, because the two over par I shot Thursday might have been the round this week that I was the most proud of," Cink said. "I was all over the lot. I got up-and-down all day long." • More on Stewart Cink

Sergio Garcia birdied 14-17 to finish in second place. But a drop on the second hole was questioned by Garcia's playing partner, and Garcia said it hurt his play. "They were calling me a cheater on that," Garcia said. "You never like that. I've never cheated in my whole life. I'd rather shoot 85 than shoot 65 cheating." • More on Sergio Garcia

"I'm excited about the way my ball-striking seemed to get better as the week went on," Mickelson said. "It seemed to get better from Dallas to Wachovia, it seemed to get better from Wachovia to here, and so I believe that if I keep working at these things and progressing, I should be ready to take on the ultimate tough challenge at Oakmont." • More on Phil Mickelson • Dave Pelz: Free tips from Mickelson's short-game coach
