Koepka leads by two strokes after third round at PGA Championship

Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

Weather and production choices led to very little golf being televised on Friday at the PGA Championship

"And I really hit some great shots the next couple of holes, gave myself a lot of chances for birdie, and made a couple of them".

Tiger Woods took route 66 towards a first major title since 2008 as a late stumble from Brooks Koepka threw the 100th US PGA Championship wide open. He settled for his second consecutive 4-under-par 66 to finish at 202, 8 under par. That included Koepka. The back-to-back U.S. Open victor sprinted away from the field for much of the afternoon, at one point grabbing a 5-stroke lead.

"Yeah, could have been a little bit closer", he said, "but I got a shot going into tomorrow".

Ten players were within four shots of the lead, which includes defending champion Justin Thomas (68), Jason Day (67) and Stewart Cink, the 2009 British Open champion who played with Woods and matched his 66. Frankly, everything about this golf tournament in the St. Louis Cardinals' backyard was supposed to be for the birds.

He has not made a putt of longer than 17 feet over three days, and has only made five putts of more than 10 feet all week. He hit a 4-iron so pure on the par-5 17th hole that he immediately began walking off to it, and thousands of fans roared when it settled 20 feet from the hole for an eagle that could have brought him within one of the lead.

"I enjoyed every minute", he said. "And I blew it by about four feet and then pulled the next one". "It was nice to have that in my back pocket, (having) been there in that same situation, and came out on top". Whether it ends up being enough to catch Brooks Koepka and Adam Scott remains to be seen, but it shows that he still has that gear when he needs it. Woods was one of the golfers to not complete his second round.

Fox closed out his round strongly with two birdies on his final three holes, including a 372-yard drive, with the aid of a cart path, to find the green in one on the par-four seventh hole.

Woods' driver has put him in some precarious spots throughout his final round at the PGA Championship, but Woods has managed to get up-and-down nearly every time.

He is now in a six-way tie to round out the top-10 at -8.

Like his final-round surge at The Open last month, excitement mounted as the 42-year-old briefly moved within two shots of the lead. He went double bogey-bogey on 11 and 12 to fall out of the lead and finished tied for sixth.

Having grabbing the lead at Bellerive Country Club with a record-equalling halfway score, Woodland's hard work was almost undone at the par four 10th where his approach found a greenside sand trap. He not only changed shirts this time, he changed colors - from a gray-and-white striped design early in the round to royal blue from the fifth hole on.
