PGA Championship: Tiger Woods in contention as Brooks Koepka leads

Scott fired a day three best 5-under-par 65 at Bellerive Country Club to jump to outright second at 10 under, just two shots back of 54-hole leader Koepka (66).

Woods, who changed his sweat-soaked shot after four holes, lost ground with a three-putt bogey on the fifth, but bounced back in style with birdies on the sixth and seventh. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there", Woodland said. "They were like, 'Did you see that, No. 1 player in the world was here.' It's like, yeah, OK". "So we'll see some putts go in".

He had a raffish five o'clock shadow after playing 29 holes and carding a pair of 66s that put him just four strokes back at 8 under par, and that represented the finest charge he has mounted in a major championship in several years.

Despite Fox's long day three, he managed to find some of the form and ball striking that saw him rush out to a tie for 16th in his opening round, sinking four birdies in his third to leave him at four-under for the tournament.

"Everything will need to be sharp but if I have to pick one it will be driving and putting", Day said. In reality, I should have played the smart shot, just accepted par or bogey instead of trying to take the green.

"I didn't think we were going to get called off yesterday and I was going along lovely so I was probably a little bit disappointed. Sometimes you are in your own mind and don't know where you are at". As I said last week, I'm trending. And I made sure on 17 I did.

That's the same position he was in going into the final round of the British Open at Carnoustie, where he led briefly in the final before fading. "I was throwing darts at it", Kisner said. "I was hitting a lot of drivers".

Tiger Woods had three birdies through seven holes as he tried to get in range.

Adam Scott two shots behind leader Brooks Koepka at US PGA Championship
The four-time US PGA champion is 10 under on the front nine for the tournament, but two over on the back nine this week. He was six shots back of the lead heading into the third round. "I feel like we're in a good spot", Fowler said.


And although he repaired some of the damage caused by dropped shots on the 14th and 15th with a birdie on the 17th, a third round of 66 left the 28-year-old American on 12 under par, just two shots ahead of former world number one Adam Scott.

"He's rolling the rock and really striping it", Kisner said.

"It's good but it's also disappointing at the same time", admitted Woods after his third round.

The kinds of excited whispers typically reserved for those peering through the large crowds for a glance at Woods on the course were being used to single out one among those very crowds Saturday.

"It seemed like that was the only way I was going to make birdie, hit it to tap-in distance or chip in", McIlroy said. Koepka was in the penultimate group at the U.S. Opens he won.

Taking advantage of the marshmallow-soft greens, he hit a series of precise approach shots and converted with the putter to plunder five birdies.

"I know I can shoot around a 7 or 8 under around here. I would have liked that". Schwartzel, Dustin Johnson, Thomas Pieters and Rickie Fowler are tied for fourth place, but Fowler only completed hole No. 10 before leaving the course on Friday for the delay.

Matt Wallace was already enjoying his day alongside three-time major victor Jordan Spieth when he made a hole-in-one on the 16th from 232 yards. But the 25-year-old American shot 67 to stand on 137. Woods was one of the golfers to not complete his second round.
