Tony Finau ties PGA Championship record with 10 birdies

Gary Woodland and Kevin Kisner are in prime position halfway through the 100th PGA Championship Gary Woodland and Kevin Kisner are in prime position halfway through the 100th PGA Championship

As usual, he was garbed in his customary red shirt as he arrived at Bellerive Country Club Sunday for the final round of the PGA Championship, looking none the worse for having played 29 holes of golf Saturday in steamy, 90-degree weather at the age of 42.

After making a Sunday charge at the PGA Championship that came up just short of a victory - one that would have locked up his spot - Woods said he wants to do much more than just help Furyk call the shots as an assistant when the Americans head to France next month to defend the cup.

Tiger Woods shot a 4-under 66 Saturday to move himself into a tie for sixth at the PGA Championship.

The powerfully built Koepka also demonstrated his mental strength during an enthralling final round as Woods, backed by a massive howling gallery, kept up the pressure right until the end rolling in a 20-foot birdie at 18. Woodland, even with the lowest 36-hole score in 60 years of stroke play at the PGA Championship, still had a long way to go.

Woods said he had trouble judging the speed of the greens, especially on the back nine, and his three-putt on 17 was the result of an over-correction.

Tiger Woods had three birdies through seven holes as he tried to get in range.

"I've watched Tiger win 14 of these things hanging around a lot of the time", Scott said. 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.

Samsung Galaxy Watch is official, launches August 24th starting at $330
While the Galaxy Note 9 may look similar to last year's Galaxy Note 8 , it's gotten several notable updates over its predecessor. Power users will appreciate the bigger battery and larger storage options which isn't available previously in Malaysia.

The 2-8 PM Eastern window is a limited one, more in line with what the Masters offers on Thursday and Friday, and the PGA doesn't have the Masters' ability to artificially suppress supply in hopes of increasing demand. "And that might mean shooting 5 under again to hang around, but I would love to be in the mix coming down the stretch and have the chance to hole some putts to win".

Koepka was at 12-under 198 and will play in the final group of a major for the first time.

He then closed out a front-nine, 3-under 32 with a birdie at the par-4 ninth. And I made sure on 17 I did.

Woodland put it behind him and made birdie putts of 13 and 6 feet on 12 and 14, and missed birdie putts of 10 feet and 9 feet on 11 and 13. That's just the nature of the way it's playing right now. He missed the birdie putt, but was unfazed.

His 2018 campaign has taken everyone by surprise and came close to winning his first PGA Tour event in five years at the Valspar Championship, finishing one-shot back.

Spieth could join Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Gene Sarazen and Ben Hogan as the only players to win each major crown at least once.
