Alex Noren and Viktor Hovland dropped more than 20 spots during the third round.

Matthew Wolff is knocking on the door for a top-10 finish in his first major.

The former Oklahoma State standout golfer shot a 2-under 68 (four birdies, two bogeys) Saturday for a 5-under total for a share of 13th entering the final round of the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.

Wolff birdied Nos. 4, 7 and 10 then had two bogeys at Nos. 13 and 15 before he got another birdie at No. 17 to move up three spots during the third round. He’ll tee off the final round at 2:40 p.m. with San Diego State product Xander Schauffele.

Alex Noren, who was paired with Wolff for the third round, and Viktor Hovland didn’t fare as well.

Noren slid 23 spots to a tie for 34th with 3-over 73 (one birdie on No. 4, four bogies), which left him at 1 under. Hovland dropped 28 spots into a tie for 58th at 2 over after shooting a 3-over 73 with four bogies before he birdied No. 15.

Hovland is paired with Duke grad Kevin Streelman again for the final round (10:10 a.m.), and Noren will be with California Riverside product Brendan Steele (12:20 p.m.).
