PGA Championship final round updates as he moves close

13 August 2018, 02:51 | Myron Mathis

Gary Woodland joined Nick Faldo Brandt Snedeker Martin Kaymer and Jordan Spieth as the only men to score 130 at the halfway stage of a major

Gary Woodland leads US PGA

The US Open champion, who had led by five shots, carded a four-under 66 to stay ahead of Australia's Adam Scott. Woods resumed on the eighth hole, where he had a wedge shot from 70 yards that he knocked close for a birdie.

"A long way to go before that happens", Woods said.

Lowry started off the day on -4 but picked up three shots and, heading into the third round, is tied 5th on -7.

It also tied the major championship record that Henrik Stenson set at Royal Troon two years ago in the British Open.

US-based Aussie Craig Hocknull is one over to sit +3 through 12 holes, while Cameron Smith is square through seven and four over, both chasing a projected even-par cut line.

"Twenty-nine holes, it's not necessarily the physical, it's this mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat".

"For some reason I can really tune in in the majors", he said, "and I have no idea why".

"You look at this leaderboard, there are names I've grown up watching, that everybody else loves to watch play", Koepka said.


"I need to assess where I'm at, and I think the best thing for me to do right now is take a couple of days off and reflect on what I need to do going forward".

Then he began the third round with consecutive birdies and an already boisterous gallery at Bellerive became even more engaged.

"It's fun to play well in a major and feel the tingle of excitement", Cink said. It was the four-time PGA champion's lowest final round in a major. Woods hit 10 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens. Glenwild Golf Club's Craig Hocknull shot 72-73 and Davis Park Golf Course's Zach Johnson posted 76-69. Kern was just one of three players who made it through his round without a bogey, joining Daniel Berger (66) and Jon Rahm (66).

Like his final-round surge at The Open last month, excitement mounted as the 42-year-old briefly moved within two shots of the lead.

Spieth had charged into contention with a front nine of 31 but after being fortunate to find his ball following a wild drive on the 12th, he saw his attempted recovery ricochet off a tree and fly out of bounds.

He again got up and down for par after a wild drive at the par-4 fifth. Woods is the most intriguing challenger, of course, because he has made remarkably fast progress in this comeback, and because he was four off the 54-hole lead at Carnoustie - just like he is at Bellerive - before he surged to the top of the board and flipped the sports world on its ear. "All in all, we'll play aggressive and just stick to what we've been doing". It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags.

"You're going to have to keep firing".
