Saturday at the PGA Championship was basically just about a total wash-out, with only 37 out of 86 players posting scores in the third round. At around 2:15pm, the horn sounded across Baltusrol GC, suspending play for what turned out to be the rest of the day.

After making the turn, he made an eagle on no. 2, followed by five consecutive birdies. From holes 15-7, he was 11-under. Here’s a screenshot of his scorecard:

Yes, that is indeed Bill Murray, sporting an interesting beard!

Of course that’s a reference to Bill Murray’s facial hair. The Pebble Beach National Pro-Am regular is making a scene, per usual. He’s partnered up with D.A. Points, who won the event in 2011 — the pair were also victorious in the pro-am portion of the tournament.

Murray and Points played at Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course on Thursday, and posted a team effort of five-under 65, putting them in a tie for 51st after the opening round.

Here’s a closer shot of Murray’s beard:
