‘They’ve been unbelievable’ | St. Louis wows Tiger Woods, golfers in PGA Championship

Gary Woodland leads US PGA

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

This look only looks good on Woods. On the day, he was five under par, on his final 18 holes, four under, and by the time the day was done, Woods's score tied him with six other golfers for sixth place.

And Woods knew the putt was bad. He was in nearly exactly the same position three weeks ago at Carnoustie - tied for sixth, four back - and put himself in the lead on the back nine.

Seven of the top 12 players have already won one of the four majors - the Masters, The Open Championship, the US Open and US PGA Championship - while the presence of top-10 players Fowler and Rahm adds to a high-quality leaderboard. He's 8-under par through three rounds and with another round like he had on Saturday, he should be right in the mix until the end.

Woodland made a triple-bogey 7, but he did finish his round with two birdies and will begin the final round at the PGA Championship three strokes off the lead.

"I can live with that", he said Friday after a 4-under 66. As Woods ground out the back nine on Saturday, tens of thousands of fans walked and whispered and roared as if he was marching toward a win, as if he had this thing in hand.

Gary Woodland's charge to his first major championship victory took an unexpected detour on Saturday at Bellerive's 10 hole, the byproduct of a surreal series of events.

He put himself in danger of carding a double on the second hole after pulling his tee shot just enough for his ball to nestle deep into a thick rough with a slight downhill lie.

Through three rounds, Woods is 10 under on the front nine, but he's 2 over on the back.

"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", Woods said. "And I made sure I did on 17. I thought if I didn't pull it off and hit the tree, I'd be somewhere down into the trees and still be able to make five". It's way too early, but remember he almost came from nine back Sunday at the Masters this year.

Meanwhile, Koepka will take a two-shot lead over Australian Adam Scott into the final round on Monday after shooting a four-under 66 that left him at 12-under for the tournament.

"The golf course is playing soft, it's gettable, you have to make birdies, " Woods said.

Woods moved inside the top-10 with five birdies in his first eight holes, as Rory McIlroy slipped further out of contention with an erratic one-over 71.

Woods had never played a competitive round in St. Louis before teeing off this week at Bellerive, so it's understandable that his performance this weekend has drawn a massive swath of patrons tracking his every movement on the course.

British Open champion Francesco Molinari is in a three-strong group on seven-under, the Italian continuing the fine form he showed at Carnoustie last month.

That means Justin Tomas has tied him for the lead at 11 under!
