Tiger Woods' PGA Championship arrival had the golf world shook

Tiger Woods was the center of attention during Round 3 of the PGA Championship. More

After atoning for his earlier misses with birdie putts from 10 feet and six feet on 15 and 16, Koepka offered a glimmer of hope to playing-partner Scott when he misread his putt for a four on the 17th, but the Australian could not take advantage as he lipped out from close range. But God, I hadn't played in two years.

In peak Tiger fashion, the crowd erupted after he drained a 19-foot birdie putt on his final hole to end the tournament at 14-under par.

"I'm just focused on me". Woods was finally here and it is fair to suggest that, outside of the Ryder Cup, the Sunday roars have never been more vocally expressed.

"I played hard, " he said.

Former world number one Woods, who on Saturday morning finished off the last 11 holes of a storm-halted second-round 66, made a sizzling afternoon start, opening with back-to-back birdies and, after a bogey at five, adding two more at the par-3 sixth and par-4 seventh.

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.

He would birdie four of six holes starting at the eighth to move into solo second place, just a shot away from the inconceivable. "I'm getting a lot of support, which is nice". Hearing the crowd, and Tiger's performing great. "It was like turning back the hands of the clock".

Erdoğan urges Turks to sell dollars and euros to support lira
This is double the level the president imposed on a range of countries earlier this year, including European Union member states. Erdogan downplayed the currency crisis in a speech on Friday, advising Turks not to be anxious over exchange rate fluctuations.

Still, it is the first time since the 2005 Masters that Woods has shot consecutive rounds of 66 or better in a major championship. Woods hit 10 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens.

Having grabbing the lead at Bellerive Country Club with a record-equalling halfway score, Woodland's hard work was almost undone at the par four 10th where his approach found a greenside sand trap.

Woods occupies another larger group behind on eight-under, heading into an exciting final day of the final major of the year.

There, he needed some help from the leaders to make it interesting, and the same might be required here.

Birdies were not only everywhere, but necessary to stay in contention, and Spieth knew it, particularly at 17 - a par 5 where eagle is in play and birdie is a must. That's just the nature of the way it's playing right now. "It looks like I'm going to come up a little short". It's not often that you see an athlete impact a sport the way Woods does. It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags.

"As much as I can", Brown said of trying to follow Woods throughout his round. "Because of that, you got to make birdies".
