‘They’ve been unbelievable’ | St. Louis wows Tiger Woods, golfers in PGA Championship

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

Two-time US Open champion Brooks Koepka took a step toward adding a third major to his short list of victories but it was Tiger Woods who stole the limelight as he roared into contention.

Stewart Cink enjoyed his first top 10 finish in a major since denying Tom Watson at The Open in 2009 as he birdied the final two holes to return a 67 and close on 11 under alongside Jon Rahm, whose slim hopes were ended by a bogey-six at the 17th.

Even with back-to-back bogeys on the back nine, Koepka had a 4-under 66 for a two-shot lead over Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion who has been struggling through his worst season in almost two decades.

"I'm going to have to play aggressive", he said.

He's been the target of Mizzou hecklers ad nauseam during the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club, was the sole leader after the first and second rounds, and carded a triple-bogey on the 10th hole Saturday.

Australian Scott produced a ball-striking round of impeccable quality, a 65 the best score of the afternoon, marred only by a couple of missed putts, including a seven-footer at the last.

"I felt I was headed in the right direction", said Woods, who was at 3 under. "But the nice thing about the delay and going back out tomorrow morning, we'll get fresh greens". The 14-time major champion came extremely close to winning major championship No. 15 at the PGA Championship. I got to give it a rap up the hill, it's steep, I know that -- there wasn't a whole lot of grass over there on the right side of the green and I thought that I should have played it faster than what I was thinking. "And I made sure I did on 17".

Woodland is second to Brooks Koepka (1.59) in the tournament in strokes gained off the tee (1.255).

Adam Scott, amazingly nearly the forgotten hero of Australian golf, reminded the golf world he's not a spent force at a weather-lashed US PGA Championship today.

The best possible fix in the short-term: show more live golf from more players.

Now he gets another shot, and it most likely will take another round like Saturday. He has been motivated by more serious moments, from being left off the "notable scores" section of TV coverage at tournaments and even last week, when he was not summoned for a TV interview to preview the PGA Championship.

Justin Thomas also had a chance to join Woods as the only back-to-back PGA champions in stroke play, and he was tied for the lead briefly on the front nine when Koepka missed fairways and made two straight bogeys.

Woods was all over the place on the front nine Sunday, and yet he somehow charged toward the lead. Three golfers are at 9-under and Woods is among five golfers tied for sixth.

"I think it starts tonight, being able to hydrate", Day said.
