Tiger Woods could be leading the PGA Championship, but he's not

13 August 2018, 05:03 | Elsie Buchanan

Tiger Woods made an early move up the leaderboard Saturday at Bellerive Country Club, but a few missed opportunities on the back nine derailed some of his momentum.

On Sunday, it wouldn't budge.

Victor of the past two U.S. Opens, Koepka took the lead at the PGA Championship on Saturday to put himself in position to win a third career major at the age of 28.

But then the golfing gods gifted this marathon Saturday out of left field and left us all with a Sunday at colorless and faceless Bellerive that could be the most memorable golf event of the year, and of many years to come.

"I thought it was ideal and it just came up short in the bunker", he said.

Grassley: Kavanaugh Confirmation Hearings Scheduled to Start Sept. 4
White House spokesman Raj Shah said the Senate has reviewed more documents than for any other high court nominee in history. Leading Democrats in the Senate immediately questioned Republicans' motives for the timing of the confirmation hearing.

Woods finished his round with 10 straight pars, including a sloppy three-putt on the par-5 17th hole. Woods slammed the head of his driver to the ground, then swung it violently in frustration. He scrambled to make par, but by the time he reached the 18th fairway, he was three back of Koepka, who birdied 15 and 16 behind him. I got to give it a rap up the hill, it's steep, I know that -- there wasn't a whole lot of grass over there on the right side of the green and I thought that I should have played it faster than what I was thinking. "A bit of a struggle with my game today, but I hung in there".

Woods lurked a single shot back.

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. And yet, he scrambled. And needed a grand total of 10 putts over nine holes to make the turn at 3-under 32.

As the putts kept dropping, the roars got louder.

Woods is bracketed on eight-under with defending champion Justin Thomas, Australian former world number one Jason Day, Ireland's Shane Lowery and South African Charl Schwartzel.

Idris Elba reignites Bond rumours with cryptic tweet
The first was a heavily filtered selfie of the top half of his head with the caption, "my name is Elba, Idris Elba". Well, Elba followed that up a few hours later with another post simply telling fans " Don't believe the HYPE ".

Open Championship runner-up Kisner holed six birdies as he played his first nine holes in 29 shots to move into the lead on nine under, while Woodland avenged a bogey on the 14th with an eagle three on the par-five 17th. "It was a long day".

If his U.S. Open victories were impressive, and they were, his PGA triumph was next level, a commanding performance with style points as he answered every challenge Tiger could throw his way.

Tiger Woods has a chance to win this thing at age 42, more than 10 years after his 14th and last major title and only three weeks after he held The Open lead with eight holes to play.

His ranking has jumped from 656 to start the year to 26 heading out of Bellerive.

I don't think I'd ever played in front of that many people.
"So I'm sure that I'll be more than just four back by the end of the day, but there aren't a lot of guys up there in front of me".
