Koepka Holds 2-stroke Lead; Tiger in Top 6

  • Gary Woodland leads US PGA

He shot 4-under 66 to reach 8 under.

His preceding hole, the par four ninth, had also been marred by a bogey, and the total four-stroke hit in two holes could have put him in a tailspin.

There were two rounds of 63, one 64 and six 65s. Brooks Koepka holds a two-shot lead over a stacked leaderboard.

He birdied the next two holes.

It had been years since we've seen Tiger Woods truly on the prowl on the back nine of a major.

Woods has never won a major, and he's won 14 of them, when trailing after 54 holes.

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., was a part of the late wave that had its round suspended by the weather.

Woodland would rather be leading, but in some ways it might be less pressure coming from behind. Woodland needed to hit a crisp enough shot out of the rough to cover the water between him and the green.

Finau began this wild ride Friday afternoon with five straight birdies, four of them from between 20 and 25 feet, the shortest one at 12 feet. This one missed, and only later did Koepka realize it was for 62.

"It's been a pleasure to play in front of them, it really has", Woods said.

"My caddie said something walking off", Koepka said. ". It was the craziest round I think he's ever seen". It's like, 'Yeah, OK.' I don't know what to say to that.

UPDATE No. 5 (3:10 p.m. ET): Brooks Koepka birdies the first to move to 13 under and he now leads by three.

Exhausted and hungry, an old Tiger survived 29 holes Saturday. "You're going to have to make some birdies".

"The overall day, I feel like I played well today", Woods said after his round. "It was nice to have that in my back pocket, (having) been there in that same situation, and came out on top". "They were talking about him as we left, and I was just standing there laughing".

Now he gets another shot, and it most likely will take another round like Saturday. Koepka has parred the second after two-putting from long range.

Charl Schwartzel, Thomas Pieters and Dustin Johnson are all on -7 with Lowry.

Spieth has battled with his game all year, and his confidence isn't at its peak.

He put a handsome swing on it, ending with a pose that would make a ideal photo in a book on golf fundamentals on the page showing what a finish is supposed to look like. "This course would be phenomenal - and probably is phenomenal - if it's not playing soft". Players try to downplay it, and I've downplayed it over the years myself because you're trying to downplay it yourself a little bit, but it's a pretty intense environment out there.

Joining Woods at eight-under were second-ranked defending champion Justin Thomas, fellow Americans Kevin Kisner and Rickie Fowler and Belgium's Thomas Pieters. On a day like this, that meant losing ground. It'll mark the first time he's been in contention at a major tournament on USA soil since the 2015 Masters-and he's in better position at Bellerive than he was then at Augusta. The 36-hole score of 130 is a record for the competition. In conditions like Bellerive, no lead was safe. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".
