Jordan Spieth loses his cool at PGA Championship

Golf Channel host praises Gary Woodland, throws shade at Mizzou during PGA Championship | The Kansas City Star

A 12-under 198 total still left Koepka within sight of his third major title in 14 months, but the two-times U.S. Open champion's grip on the Wanamaker Trophy had loosened.

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

Brooks Koepka had his rivals on the ropes but could not deliver a knockout punch and had his lead whittled to two strokes over Adam Scott after the third round at the PGA Championship on Saturday.

Then he drilled his tee shot at the 10th right down the middle.

Tiger Woods shot a 4-under 66 Saturday to move himself into a tie for sixth at the PGA Championship. In fact, after draining a 10-footer for par to keep his front-nine momentum intact, Woods had birdie putts of 20, 16, 14, 8 and 20 feet at the 11th through 15th holes, a 20-footer for eagle at the 17th and a 14-footer for birdie at the 18th - and made none of them.

"Hearing the crowd, and Tiger's performing great, it was like turning back the hands of the clock, " said Stewart Cink, who played with Woods and also shot 4 under to also finish four out of the lead.

Numerous back injuries and personal issues continued to disrupt his career, but fusion surgery previous year has seemingly revived the 14-time major victor. Instead, he was the 15th player to shoot 63 in the PGA Championship. That gave him a sliver of a chance, but he came up short when Koepka didn't flinch with two closing pars. "I blew it by about four feet and then pulled the next one".

After changing his sweat-soaked shirt, Woods lost ground with a three-putt bogey on the fifth, but bounced back in style with birdies on the sixth, seventh and eighth.

Tiger Woods is now playing the kind of golf the entire sports world has been waiting 10 years for him to play. That's exactly what happened on Friday at Bellerive Country Club. He didn't register his first birdie until the 13th hole.

That's what impressed Furyk the most - not so much the five birdies, but Finau's response to the triple bogey.

"I can think of plenty of people along the way telling me I'll be nothing", he had said the other day, "working at McDonald's, doing things like that". "This is the first real "Tiger effect" I guess you could say. You should see the best players in the world come to the top, and that's what you have". Before the rain hit, incredibly low scores were being put up.

After taking relief from a cart path, Woods had to play a huge draw from matted down rough and somehow roped a shot 11 feet right of the pin. Kern was just one of three players who made it through his round without a bogey, joining Daniel Berger (66) and Jon Rahm (66).
