Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

As if this week hasn't been wild enough already for Gary Woodland.

Tiger Woods shot a 4-under 66 Saturday to move himself into a tie for sixth at the PGA Championship. Then there was defending champion Justin Thomas in the crowd of six another stroke back, a group that included Jason Day, Stewart Cink and Charl Schwartzel. I'm getting a lot of KU and Mizzou people yelling back and forth.

"I feel safe because I feel safe where my game is", Woodland said. So it's been good, though.

"Then I thought I had a shot [from the woods] and just didn't quite pull it off, had a tough break [going out of bounds]". No one made more in one stretch than Woods, who electrified the gallery with a 31 on the front to start his third round. It's all about what's going on between the ropes and the ears. The American shot a 66 to move to 12 under par for the tournament, two shots ahead of Adam Scott.

He shook it off better than those bleeding for him.

After playing 29 holes on Saturday, Tiger Woods says the mental aspect of playing the course has been tiring and he'll need to shoot a low round Sunday to contend.

Woodland hit 15 of 18 greens in regulation in the first two rounds, but just 10 of 18 in the third round.

As it turned out, my mind went to the same place as Woodland's at that very moment.

McIlroy's birdie on the par-five eighth was his first since his fourth hole on Thursday and he also chipped in on the 14th after flying the green with his approach.

That put him at 10-under 130, breaking by one the PGA Championship record and tying the 36-hole score for all majors.

What did he tell himself to shake it off? "For me to make triple on 10, to give myself a little bit of confidence, I told myself I did the same thing in Phoenix. It was nice to have that in my back pocket, (having) been there in that same situation, and came out on top".

Woods may not have been happy with his putting but had to be pleased with the performance of his back.

Before getting to how he carded a 7, let's look at what he did up to that point. His tee shot on the par-3 third hole almost hit the hole and bounced just a few feet away.

Not by bouncing back from a 74 to make the cut on the number. "St. Louis has never seen Tiger up close, so it's pretty insane and it makes it a lot more fun".

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.

If he plays like he looks on Sunday, they will.

He put a attractive swing on it, ending with a pose that would make a ideal photo in a book on golf fundamentals on the page showing what a finish is supposed to look like.

"He's got a great head on his shoulders", Furyk said. He chipped it to eight inches and tapped in for a triple. I said to my caddie a couple of holes before it was the most fun I'd ever had and then that happened.

"I'm going to have to play aggressive", he said. "The crowds are insane so we're just trying to plan it out and see what we can see".

Again using his iron, the tee shot lands just short of the water hazard and it's no issue for Tiger. He missed 15-foot birdie putts on 15 and 16 and reached 17, a par 5, in two, but three-putted from 42 feet, leaving the first putt 11 feet short.

Koepka was at 8-under 132, two shots behind.

Still to be determined was whether Woodland's score even holds up as the lead. "I get it all the time, so I'm used to it by now".

"The golf course is playing soft, it's gettable, you have to make birdies, " Woods said. "Hopefully, I'm in his position tomorrow".
