ATLANTA: A record American major golf victory drought was poised to end as unlikely US heroes Brendan Steele and Jason Dufner topped an American-filled leaderboard at the 93rd PGA Championship. Steele, trying to become the first man to win a major debut on US soil since 1913 US Open, and Dufner, winless in six US PGA seasons, shared the lead on seven-under par 203 after 54 holes at Atlanta Athletic Club. “To have a chance to win in my first major is something special,” said Steele. “It was nice to play well and roll some putts in.”
