Cameron Smith is set to duke it out with Phil Mickelson in the final round of LIV Golf's event in Bedminster.
Smith will take a four-shot lead into the final round at Trump National Golf Course in New Jersey.
The Aussie is looking for his second LIV Golf win of the 2023 campaign, having tasted success at Centurion Club just outside of London before the 151st Open.
Smith carded a second round of 4-under 67 to reach 9-under par after 36 holes.
He recovered from an early double bogey at the third hole and fired a further seven birdies, dropping another stroke at the par-3 14th.
Mickelson, who has been making headlines over his alleged gambling debts, sits in T-2 at 5-under alongside South Africa's Dean Burmester.
Lefty has released a statement about the claims he was wagered $1bn gambling over three decades.
And he saw the funny side of this chirp from a fan in Bedminster. Mickelson fired five birdies in his second round of 67.
He is yet to record a victory since bolting to the breakaway tour and this is the first time he will play in a final group in a LIV event.
A host of players are sitting on T-8 at 2-under. They include Jason Kokrak, Marc Leishman, Kevin Na, Abraham Ancer and Carlos Ortiz.
In the team element, Stinger and Ripper are T-1 at 11-under, leading Watson's RangeGoats by four.
Mickelson said he will be nervous in the final round, adding:
Lefty defied age once again at the 2023 Masters with a superb final round at Augusta National to finish T-2 with fellow LIV pro Brooks Koepka.
Mickelson was asked why things have come to fruition this week.
Mickelson will be roared on by a boisterous New Jersey crowd.
Smith said of the showdown with Mickelson: "Yeah, I don't mind a rowdy crowd. I actually quite enjoy it.
"I think it's nice down the fairway, but once you're over the ball and you're trying to hit your shot, it's always just about committing to your shot and doing what you have to do to get it in there tight and keep making birdies."
