Tiger closes PGA Championship with awe-inspiring 64 in final round

Scott, carrying the added motivation of winning for friend Jarrod Lyle who died earlier in the week, battled Koepka toe-to-toe but finished third after a bogey at the last left the Australian with a final round 67 and three strokes adrift. He certainly gets points for showmanship and a willingness to attract some eyeballs, but he doesn't quite get full marks for creativity; Brown said he remembered seeing another fan do something similar about a year ago, and decided this would be the ideal time to go for it.

"I thought I played really clean cards, really clean rounds", said Woods, who made eight birdies and three bogeys over the course of the two rounds. 17 was just, I left every putt short.

"I feel like I played well today", said Woods, who only returned to competitive golf in November after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April a year ago.

Dialled in on the back nine, he dropped an approach into 4 feet on No. 12, got within one shot with a 10-foot birdie on the par-3 13th and, after a bad drive led to bogey, he answered with another approach that hit a foot from the hole. The American shot a 66 to move to 12 under par for the tournament, two shots ahead of Adam Scott.

He would birdie four of six holes starting at the eighth to move into solo second place, just a shot away from the inconceivable.

"You've got to decide what you want to do with it before you get out there, and it was a lot of fun". Can the Tiger of old show up Sunday, emerge from a crowd of star-studded hopefuls and knock that tough-guy look off Koepka's face? "It was like turning back the hands of the clock". He finished with 10 consecutive pars.

Even with two bogeys, Woods shot 64 for his lowest final round in a major, giving him his best shot at a top title since he last won the US Open in 2008. But he needed 18 putts on the back nine for a total of 30, and the difference between being closer to the lead.

Woods occupies another larger group behind on eight-under, heading into an exciting final day of the final major of the year. But there's no question what Woods will need to do.

In fact, he arrived at the Bellerive Golf Course looking utterly cool, calm and collected.

The two Utah club professionals in the field each ended up at 5 over par, missing the cut. He just found a way to bury his friend, playing partner and the world's top player, Johnson, and in doing so won the same tournament at 1 over that he won at 16 under the year before.

And he made it look ever so easy, bludgeoning his drives massive distances and honing in on the pins with unerring accuracy. It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags.
