Woods teeters on edge of title in agonizing 2nd place at PGA

Woods teeters on edge of title in agonizing 2nd place at PGA

But Scott was playing his best golf in years, determined to show his top form in honor of countryman Jarrod Lyle, who had passed away from leukemia the night before the tournament started. He certainly gets points for showmanship and a willingness to attract some eyeballs, but he doesn't quite get full marks for creativity; Brown said he remembered seeing another fan do something similar about a year ago, and decided this would be the flawless time to go for it.

American Koepka moved to eight under for the tournament with seven birdies in his bogey-free 63, missing a 20-foot putt on the ninth that would have seen him match Branden Grace's 62 set at the 2017 Open.

"I'm exhausted. I just need to eat some proper meals tonight and I felt my hydration was good all day, so it just takes a lot out of you", he said.

However, that didn't stop Woods from continuing to hit jaw-dropping shots to send the crowd into a frenzy.

"Oh, God, I didn't even know if I was going to play golf again, so yeah", he said.

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.

But Koepka faltered late in the day and went to dinner and bed at 12 under par with just a two-stroke advantage and the knowledge that a host of proven champions are close behind him, all keen to take advantage should he slip further.

His third attempt was hardly text-book but the ball did manage to hang onto the greenside fringe, allowing Woodland to finally card a seven and slump to three-over for the round.

Romanians protest govt corruption for 2nd straight day

"You've got to decide what you want to do with it before you get out there, and it was a lot of fun". Hearing the crowd, and Tiger's performing great. He finished with 10 consecutive pars.

And the round was solid, perhaps something to build on.

Shane Lowry was one of a multitude of golfers up at the crack of dawn in St Louis to finish out his second round in the USPGA Championships.

There, he needed some help from the leaders to make it interesting, and the same might be required here.

Shot of the day came from England's Matt Wallace, who aced the par-three 16th on his way to a 68 to close on the same mark as Johnson.

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. It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags.

"Another low round", Woods said. "Because of that, you got to make birdies".

    But that's of zero concern to Scott, who carded a superb five-under-par 65 to climb to five under overall and a share of ninth. But he needed 18 putts on the back nine for a total of 30, and the difference between being closer to the lead.
