Tiger Woods roars back into contention at USPGA Championship

Gary Woodland leads US PGA

Gary Woodland joined Nick Faldo Brandt Snedeker Martin Kaymer and Jordan Spieth as the only men to score 130 at the halfway stage of a major

"Tiger's never been to St. Louis".

Everything is on the table on Sunday at Bellerive.

Victor of the past two U.S. Opens, Koepka took the lead at the PGA Championship on Saturday to put himself in position to win a third career major at the age of 28.

The 14-time major victor was three under for his round to that point and carried on where he left off on Saturday morning, pitching to five feet and holing the birdie putt.

Sky Sports lost the rights to golf's "other" major two years ago and in 2017 United Kingdom fans came dangerously close to not being able to watch the tournament at all. He tied Gary Player's record for the most birdies in a round in the PGA Championship. He has a chance to make history in the same town where his great uncle, an old shortstop named Dick Groat, helped the Cardinals beat the New York Yankees in the 1964 World Series.

Spieth second-guessed his decision to try to hit a 5-iron out of the woods en route to the triple.

Koepka seemed an unlikely candidate to falter, but falter he did.

"The whole experience of playing with Jordan, I said to him down maybe the first hole or second hole it's like, you know, mate, this is a real privilege for me to be playing with you, because 18 months ago I was on a mini-tour and I worked really hard to where I got to now and it's a privilege to play with him", Wallace explained.

"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. Glenwild Golf Club's Craig Hocknull shot 72-73 and Davis Park Golf Course's Zach Johnson posted 76-69. "I've been so in the zone, you don't know where you are". "It was like, 'All right'". There's only one way to find out. "So, yeah, special day for me today".

"He was just shaking his head", Finau said after finishing the rain-delayed round this morning with a 4-under 66, a round that featured just four pars. "Sometimes your haters, I guess, are your biggest motivators".

But an even-par back nine leaves Woods having to chase down a four-shot deficit if he is to earn his 15th major title. Brown, whose family traditionally attends the PGA event every two years, was decked out in a full-length tiger costume as he followed around his favorite golfer Saturday. Koepka didn't waste any time and energy complaining about the USGA. That's just the nature of the way it's playing right now.

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.

"I can live with that", he said Friday after a 4-under 66. Yeah, there's a lot of star power, and it should be.

The four-time PGA Championship victor made five birdies and one bogey through eight holes and finished with 10 consecutive pars.

After birdieing five of his first eight holes and playing the front side in 31 strokes, Woods stalled on the back nine, failing to convert any birdie opportunities and squandering a handsome chance at the par-5 17th, where he three-putted for par.

Exhausted and hungry, an old Tiger survived 29 holes Saturday.
