PGA Championship: Tiger Woods in contention as Brooks Koepka leads

PGA Championship: Tiger Woods in contention as Brooks Koepka leads

Back-to-back bogeys from the 14th saw Koepka's lead cut to one, before a two-putt birdie at the 17th doubled his advantage over Scott - who mixed six birdies with a sole blemish during his round.

"I was just trying to make the thing, and I really thought I made it", Koepka said. "I've got to make adjustments better than I did [Saturday]". You know the outcome, but you don't care. Adam Scott, the former Masters champ with leading-man looks, is right there, and so is burgeoning star Jon Rahm, at 23 the most promising young Spaniard since Sergio Garcia.

The 25-year-old is without a win since victory in the Open at Royal Birkdale last year and 12 months on there would be no repeat at Carnoustie, where he went into the final round with a share of the lead but stumbled to a closing, birdie-free 76.

"It was a long day".

Jordan Spieth found that out on a hole that effectively ended his second bid for the career Grand Slam.

Resuming his weather-delayed round on the 12th hole Saturday, the Lehi resident made two more birdies and two bogeys to finish. He said so many times he felt the yardage he had into a green matched up nicely with the club he wanted to hit, meaning full, fluid shots. His resulting attempt to punch back out in to play hit another tree and ricocheted out of bounds.

Koepka gave the field a glimmer of hope after moving to 13 under with back-to-back bogeys at Nos.

'I actually played well on the back nine in both rounds, ' insisted Woods, with good reason.

Despite being eight shots back and tied 28th the Texan was not throwing in the towel. Rickie Fowler had just birdied the 10th hole and was at 7 under. It's like, 'Yeah, OK.' I don't know what to say to that.

Finau was among five players who accompanied Furyk to France this summer for a scouting trip at Le Golf Nacional, the host course of the September 28-30 Ryder Cup matches.

Spieth wasn't the only player to have a triple bogey nightmare.

FBI Seeks Motive After US Airline Worker Stole Plane And Crashed It
A plane that reportedly took off without permission has sparked a major security incident at Seattle-Tacoma worldwide airport. Two F-15 fighter jets scrambled from Portland "minutes later" to intercept it , according to Pierce County Sheriff's Office.

Then there was the par-5 17th.

Tiger will have a short break and then get back on the course for his third round later this afternoon. "Kevin played beautifully today".

Here's reaction from the top two golfers in the clubhouse, Woodland and Kisner.

"It was nice", Woodland told reporters.

For the third round in succession Woods looked set to bogey the hard par-four 10th hole, which plays as a par five for the members, when he could only hack out from heavy rough to the right of the fairway. It might be that he's back to using a modified version of his long putter, or perhaps it's a peace of mind that came with rehiring his brother-in-law, Brad Malone, as his swing coach after a couple of years apart.

But he was already having the time of his life. All of the other nuances of playing the year's final major have been washed away by downpours on Tuesday and Friday.

"Best shot of my life probably".

Woodland has a one stroke lead after a four under round of 66 on Friday.

He then won the Open de Portugal in 2017 and has two wins this season at the Hero Indian Open and BMW International Open. 'It's just that all the putts I made came on the front nine'.

"He's a cool dude and very good fun out there".
