Koepka takes 2-shot lead at PGA and goes for another major

Share

"I'd like it to be kind to me this weekend".

All the big names have chance to win @PGAChampionship! "So the good news is 10 birdies in a major is pretty good".

Of the 14 w/in 5 shots, 8 are major champs w/ @TigerWoods giving himself chance!

Kenyon also works with Open champion Francesco Molinari, who is five shots off the lead after a 67, with world number three Justin Rose another stroke back following a 69. This time, Woodland's shot landed on grass, on the upslope in front of the green, 44 feet from the pin.

Woods, a 14-time major champion in his comeback season from spinal fusion surgery, fired a 66 to share fourth on 202 with second-ranked defending champion Justin Thomas, 2009 British Open victor Stewart Cink, Ireland's Shane Lowry, Australia's Jason Day and South African Charl Schwartzel. "It just felt like all that I remembered playing with Tiger all those years, you know, when he was winning tournaments".

That is just what Woods has in mind.

Day, who finished second at the 2016 PGA and tied ninth previous year, shares sixth with five others including defending champion Justin Thomas (68) and Tiger Woods (66).

"I feel like I've got a 63 in me tomorrow. Hopefully I can go out and do a better job this time than I did the last time".

Woodland and Kisner played in the same group, and they offered a great example that Bellerive is accommodating to just about any game. I struggled to hit it as the greens were getting slower.

Gary Woodland set a tournament record before storms suspended play during the second round of the 2018 PGA Championship Friday in St. Louis. Can the Tiger of old show up Sunday, emerge from a crowd of star-studded hopefuls and knock that tough-guy look off Koepka's face?

"Not just myself, but everyone's going to have to shoot low rounds", Woods said. The 45-year-old Cink played a lot like he did in his younger days, shooting a 4-under 66 in his third round at the PGA Championship to climb into contention heading into the final round at Bellerive Country Club.

"It's been fantastic", Scott said.

"It was nice to have that in my back pocket, been there in that same situation and came out on top".

Hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy could be a major tribute as well. I'm done. I'm done with the golf side of it today.

He holed only one lengthy putt, the other four birdies coming from tap-in range, or close to it.

If the appearance of this duo at the leaderboard's summit is something of a surprise, the same can not be said for the men in pursuit. It carried him through those lonely months of inactivity as he recovered from a left wrist injury and those far flung early days of his career when he chased his dream to the four corners of the globe on the European Challenge Tour.

"It's been such a hard thing for us to get our heads around because we've been removed from Jarrod and his family back in Australia, and everything happening so suddenly last week, and then this week, you know, I don't even know if we've really had time to reflect on it and let it sink in. It takes it out of you not just physically but mentally".

England's Wallace produced one of the most memorable moments of the tournament by claiming a "mindblowing" hole in one on the par-three 16th.
