Tiger Woods lurking at PGA Championship

  • Shane Lowry is bloody killing it at the USPGA Championships

If he did it once, why can't he do it again?

His 10-under-par 130 score matched the lowest halfway total in major championship history, and he enjoyed a one-shot halfway lead over Kevin Kisner, and a two-shot cushion over Koepka.

What did he tell himself to shake it off? And I made sure on 17 I did. After netting five birdies on the front nine, he'd shot even par since, and to knock his score down to 10 under for the tournament would have done wonders.

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.

It all unraveled so quickly for Woodland and he put it back together with similar swiftness on his way to shooting a 1-over 71.

The Kiwi sits in a tie for 28th at four-under through three rounds after carding a two-under round of 68 on Sunday (NZ time).

McIlroy bogeyed the opening hole after flying his approach over the green and although he responded immediately with a birdie on the next, further dropped shots on the fourth and seventh saw him tumble down the leaderboard. It didn't quite make it. Woodland stuck it to 12 inches and tapped in for a bogey. Woods played 29 holes, while Fowler played 26.

Modi said good neighbourly relations to promote peace and prosperity in the region were vital for New Delhi's Neighbourhood First policy. "I will try to work with all stakeholders", he said.

Not by bouncing back from a 74 to make the cut on the number.

Now he gets another shot, and it most likely will take another round like Saturday. They both birdied No. 8 and Koepka birdied 9 to card a 30 on the front. He runs that by 3-4 feet and the misses the comebacker. He and his caddie read their yardage books, and as Woodland pulled a club out of the bag, he looked uneasily up at the trees to gauge the wind. Woods, who said Saturday's round-and-a-half of golf left him mentally exhausted, will have to make every birdie he missed thus far.

Well, at least when he's not hitting it off the tee. He chipped it to eight inches and tapped in for a triple. He sent the ball four feet from the hole and converted the tap-in to remain at 10-under.

"Yeah, could have been a little bit closer", he said, "but I got a shot going into tomorrow". "All in all, we'll play aggressive and just stick to what we've been doing". As the 42-year-old walked up the 17th fairway, eyeing an eagle putt, a fan scrambled up the cart path in a T-shirt screen-printed with dozens of images of Woods's head: looking every which direction, in the various phases of a smile, always affixed to shoulders clothed in red.

Justin Thomas had a 7-footer for birdie at the ninth to take the outright lead at 12 under. That was four back of leader Brooks Koepka - well within striking range, but not as good as it might've been.

"I can't believe we opened #TheWoodsJupiter three years ago today".

Once Turner finally came on the air at 2, things didn't get much better. "And 18 is playing pretty short as well".
