Tiger charges into the hunt as Koepka grabs lead at 100th PGA

Adjust Comment Print

It's an annual expectation for the PGA Championship, which already struggles for an identity and for the interest the other three majors never have trouble generating.

Woods, searching for a first major win since the 2008 US Open, moved into contention after a blistering front nine which contained five birdies and one bogey.

But the world number six played the remaining 11 holes in five under to card an opening 68 and carried on where he left off on day two by chipping in for birdie on the 10th, his opening hole.

Kisner had also had the opportunity to shoot 62 after covering the back nine in 29 and picking up another birdie on the seventh, only to bogey the ninth, his final hole of the day.

He made birdie on the par-four first hole, again on the back of a great approach shot which left him a one-metre putt, but a three-putt on the par-four fourth hole put him back to even par for the round. He hit a 4-iron so pure on the par-5 17th hole that he immediately began walking off to it, and thousands of fans roared when it settled 20 feet from the hole for an eagle that could have brought him within one of the lead.

Tiger will play 11 more holes Saturday morning to complete that round before playing the normal 18 holes of the third round.

Woods, 42, found himself three-over par after the first two holes.

Finau, who double bogeyed No. 6 after his five birdies to start, did not have a par in the second round until the 10th hole.

At 3:35 p.m., when time the horn blew to suspend play because of a severe weather warning, Rickie Fowler was in the best position to make a run at Woodland's lead. Players try to downplay it, and I've downplayed it over the years myself because you're trying to downplay it yourself a little bit, but it's a pretty intense environment out there. From well right of the 12th fairway, he tried to hit through a gap and instead caromed off a tree and out-of-bounds, leading to triple bogey and falling back to 4 under for the tournament.
