US PGA Championship: Brooks Koepka leads, Tiger Woods in contention

"It's going to be a long day", Fowler said. But Koepka proved as hard as the course was soft.

But his experience on the back nine at Bellerive was different, in part because of storms that took him off the course in the middle of his second round Friday and brought him back for a 7 a.m. restart Saturday. This time, Woodland hit two bad green-side sand shots and one not very good one to score a 7 on the par 4.

"It's not necessarily the physical, it's mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat, " he said. Kern was just one of three players who made it through his round without a bogey, joining Daniel Berger (66) and Jon Rahm (66). The gym is his refuge, a place where he can go and get away from golf and expectations; just not the feeling that he's overlooked among the game's best.

Golfers aren't really swayed much anyway by what happens outside the ropes.

When people mocked Erin Hills as an unworthy U.S. Open test, Koepka answered them two months ago by acing what the USGA conceded was an unfair test at Shinnecock Hills, and he became the sport's first back-to-back national champ since Curtis Strange three decades earlier.

Of course, we've all been there, save the part about playing in a major and actually being good enough to warrant being ticked off at missing a fairway.

"I feel like if I do what I'm supposed to do, I should win the golf tournament", he said.

Woodland is second to Brooks Koepka (1.59) in the tournament in strokes gained off the tee (1.255). "You can really control the spin, the flight".

After a two-putt birdie on the 17th Woods was faced with another lengthy putt on the last, but this time safely made par to complete a satisfactory morning's work.

"It would be more than twice the thrill for me, but I think no matter who wins tomorrow I think if that person has met Jarrod Lyle, then they will have felt something with him passing this week", Scott said. Among the other chargers and faders were Rickie Fowler, in a three-way tie for third at 9 under, the eighth time in his career that he is in the top five entering the final round of a major. He tied Gary Player's record for the most birdies in a round in the PGA Championship.

"So to then birdie the last and play those hole in three under and six under overall was nice". No one made more in one stretch than Woods, who electrified the gallery with a 31 on the front to start his third round. The crowds crooned to him, imploring him to keep it going.

Woods' front nine charge - 4-under - came to a screeching halt on the back.

Spieth was two shots off the lead when he triple-bogeyed No. 12 with an errant shot into the woods then hit a shot from the woods that caromed out of bounds.

"It's plugging; we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags", he said.

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

He won't get to No. 1 in the world with a victory on Sunday, but he'll certainly make a statement that will be impossible for anyone to ignore.

"It can show its teeth if you're not driving it well", Thomas said.
