Tiger Woods lurking at PGA Championship

Golf Channel host praises Gary Woodland, throws shade at Mizzou during PGA Championship | The Kansas City Star

Eldrick Woods wasn't the only "Tiger" turning heads Saturday during the third round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive.

What followed was another chapter in a consistent trend: Woods has played the front nine in 10-under par this week, but has played the back at 2 over.

Meanwhile, Koepka will take a two-shot lead over Australian Adam Scott into the final round on Monday after shooting a four-under 66 that left him at 12-under for the tournament.

Then he drilled his tee shot at the 10th right down the middle.

Koepka's lapse also brought many more players into the frame, with halfway leader Gary Woodland, Spain's Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler on nine under and Woods four off the pace alongside defending champion Justin Thomas, Ireland's Shane Lowry, Jason Day, Stewart Cink and Charl Schwartzel.

His nearest challenger is former Masters victor Adam Scott of Australia, who carded a fine five-under 65 for 10-under 200, two shots back.

Woods, searching for a first major win since the 2008 US Open, moved into contention after a blistering front nine which contained five birdies and one bogey. "Because of that, you got to make birdies".

"That self-belief has to come out and I feel like the last six to eight weeks has been a real positive for me". Furyk then has four captain's picks to make on September 4. He struck it pure from 240 yards on the 17th hole and started strutting down the fairway, watching the ball land 20 feet from the pin - one good putt away from an eagle that would have vaulted him into second place.

"You're never going to win another golf tournament again".

Now Koepka has to hold off a wide circle of PGA contenders that's heavy on instant name recognition and, in Woods, that includes arguably the greatest golfer ever trying to write one of the game's greatest tales. It went to the fourth hole of the Friday round in Phoenix, when Woodland hit a bad sand shot and carded a triple bogey.

Woods started the day with five birdies in his first eight holes.

The Show-Me State has been showing up big time for the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club. "I feel like I'm where I want to be". Before the rain hit, incredibly low scores were being put up. Yes, it is a course (where) you can make birdies, but I just think this afternoon there's been a couple of big numbers as well. After a par at No. 9, he rattled off three more birdies over his next four holes.

"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", Woods said.

"For some reason I can really tune in in the majors", he said, "and I have no idea why". Woodland missed the ninth green to the right and popped up his chip out of the deep rough, leaving himself a 12-footer that he left short.
