Tiger Woods roars back into contention at USPGA Championship

Finally, the real Charl Schwartzel stands up

Tiger Woods however also got off to a flyer when play resumed in the delayed second round of the 100th US PGA Championship. This course would be phenomenal. if it's not playing so soft.

"Not just myself, but everyone's going to have to shoot low rounds", Woods said. "I played 29 holes in the heat".

For any other golfer, it would have been respectable, impressive, good for an aside.

Meanwhile, Brooks Koepka had dropped consecutive shots midway through his back nine, and that meant Scott was only trailing the U.S. Open champion by two heading into the final round. He'd won the Barclays Classic and three more times after his triumph at Augusta, riding a sweet swing and long putter to the forefront of golf's youth revolution. Koepka just may be that kind of complete, too.

"I want to make the most of this; hopefully it's the start of some (great) form in the big tournaments".

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

Rahm birdied two of his final three holes to get to nine under, with Ireland's Shane Lowry a further shot back after birdieing the last to get within four of the lead.

What they watched was the hole Woods regretted, where he was a 19-foot putt away from eagle. "You can really control the spin, the flight".

Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol.

Meanwhile, Koepka will take a two-shot lead over Australian Adam Scott into the final round on Monday after shooting a four-under 66 that left him at 12-under for the tournament.

As Woods said, "Guys are making birdies from everywhere".

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

Woodland is yet to record a top 10 in 27 major appearances but has reaped the rewards of working with two British coaches, Phil Kenyon on his putting and Pete Cowen on his short game. "You're going to have to make some birdies". To be able to come back out this morning and play nicely was good.

Still, it was the biggest move he has made in a major since the 2011 Masters, when he came from eight shots back to briefly lead before finishing fourth.

The question is whether Woods will be able to keep up such a hot scoring pace for another round and fight through such a sluggers' row of fellow established champions.

"I'm all right with it", Kisner said. This morning two birdies was my goal to get to six under.

"I'm very excited for tomorrow".

He had been on the verge of a low number that would have vaulted him into the thick of it.

"I know I can shoot around a 7- or 8-under around here", he said. Seemed like everybody was between 2- and 4- or 5-under par. He was so rattled that he then chopped his second attempt all the way across the green and into another bunker on the opposite side.

He was the rare outlier, a relatively unproven player among the logjam of established champions who will be chasing Koepka on Sunday.

"There's a lot of star power, and there should be, it's a major championship", Koepka added.

A crowd of reporters laughed at Koepka's retelling, but it's clear this is one golfer who doesn't often find real or imagined slights amusing.
