Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

  • Gary Woodland leads US PGA

"After this week I could just retire, it's been so awesome".

Today, at the PGA Championship, Woods is starting his final round just four shots back of leader Brooks Koepka and he knows he's in the hunt.

"I can live with that", he said Friday after a 4-under 66. 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. As Woods ground out the back nine on Saturday, tens of thousands of fans walked and whispered and roared as if he was marching toward a win, as if he had this thing in hand. "Having said that, I would have shot a much higher score yesterday".

Justin Thomas isn't giving in, either. Frankly, everything about this golf tournament in the St. Louis Cardinals' backyard was supposed to be for the birds.

At Bellerive this evening Tiger Woods may be in contention for his 15th major, Rory McIlroy for his fifth. Koepka has parred the second after two-putting from long range.

Koepka reached the turn three ahead but saw his lead increase further when Woodland triple-bogeyed the 10th, only to watch his compatriot birdie the 12th and 14th.

"Honestly, I haven't hit it great, up to my standards, these first couple days", Finau said. "And I made sure I did on 17".

I asked Woodland if he might have needed one more club for his second shot.

He may even tell you the tournament is simmering nicely, looking as though it could be a hell of a back nine.

Koepka, who in June became the first man to win back-to-back US Opens since Curtis Strange in 1988-89, could become only the fourth player to win the US Open and PGA Championship in the same year, following fellow Americans Gene Sarazen in 1922, Ben Hogan in 1948 and Jack Nicklaus in 1980. Cink, who along with Webb Simpson rounded out the 12:21 tee time, has played with Woods intermittently for decades, and he said the experience Saturday took him back.

Woods had missed only one putt through his first eight holes.

What followed was another chapter in a consistent trend: Woods has played the front nine in 10-under par this week, but has played the back at 2 over.

"The difference between the level I think I've played at and the top level is very fine and really after a little while it's just that little bit of confidence that you lack", Scott said after his six-birdie round was blemished only by a closing bogey on the ninth.

Woods, ranked 51st, won his most recent major title at the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational but showed solid form last month by leading on the back nine Sunday at last month's British Open.
