Tony Finau made 10 birdies to tie a PGA Championship record

Poulter's playing-partner Rickie Fowler set the early pace Poulter's playing-partner Rickie Fowler set the early pace

He was playing with Kisner, who shot 29 on the back nine and was in the middle of the ninth fairway - his final hole - needing a birdie to become the first player to shoot 62 in the PGA Championship.

Four-time major victor Rory McIlroy, whose morning 67 was highlighted by a 58-foot chip-in at 14, had three bogeys against two birdies over the first 10 holes in round three.

Australian Scott produced a ball-striking round of impeccable quality, a 65 the best score of the afternoon, marred only by a couple of missed putts, including a seven-footer at the last.

Koepka rallied with a birdie at the 17th for a two shot lead over Australian Adam Scott, who shot a fine 65, with Spanish slugger Jon Rahm (66) three off the pace alongside another big hitter in American Gary Woodland and majors almost man Rickie Fowler.

The biggest buzz, as always, belonged to Woods.

If Woods is to win his first tournament anywhere for five years and his first major for double that length, he is going to have to figure out how to improve his scoring on the back nine.

He did sprinkle in the triple, which came after he missed dry land by a foot at the par-3 sixth, and three bogeys, including one at the par-4 18th. Thats probably another story for a different time, but it warrants mentioning that we're looking at a scenario in which Koepka has four wins, and three of them are majors if he takes the PGA on Sunday.

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. "Most majors the weekends get hard, but I think this course you're going to have to keep shooting birdies".

"I felt I was headed in the right direction", said Woods, who was at 3 under. This golf course is very gettable.

Koepka was at 12-under 198 and will play in the final group of a major for the first time.

A 12-under 198 total still left Koepka within sight of his third major title in 14 months, but the two-times U.S. Open champion's grip on the Wanamaker Trophy had loosened. The 36-hole score of 130 is a record for the competition.

He has only one other PGA Tour victory, one in Europe and two in Japan. Built like a boxing heavyweight, no-one could lay a glove on him on this course that plays into the hands of the big hitters.

This test figures to be different.

"I'm a little bit exhausted". "He ran away with a few, for sure, but he hung around for a lot". I'm delighted to be where I am and looking forward to the afternoon and tomorrow.

"After this week I could just retire, it's been so fantastic".

ST. LOUIS - Who knows what time Tiger Woods woke up on Saturday morning, but like all of those who had to finish the second round, it was in the dark. It's fun, " Cink said. Hearing the crowd, and Tiger's performing great.

And he made it look ever so easy, bludgeoning his drives massive distances and honing in on the pins with unerring accuracy.

MAJOR MELTDOWNS. Jordan Spieth will nearly certainly have to wait at least another year to complete his career grand slam bid after a hot run up the leaderboard was destroyed by an eventful triple bogey.
