Spieth momentarily loses cool, shoots 66 at PGA Championship

Syndicate Post image

Tiger Woods of the United States and caddie Joe LaCava prepare to play a shot on the ninth hole during the continuation of the weather delayed second round of the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club on August 11, 2018 in St Louis, Missouri.

Kenyon also works with Open champion Francesco Molinari, who is five shots off the lead after a 67, with world number three Justin Rose another stroke back following a 69.

Australian Scott produced a ball-striking round of impeccable quality, a 65 the best score of the afternoon, marred only by a couple of missed putts, including a seven-footer at the last.

Koepka rallied with a birdie at the 17th for a two shot lead over Australian Adam Scott, who shot a fine 65, with Spanish slugger Jon Rahm (66) three off the pace alongside another big hitter in American Gary Woodland and majors almost man Rickie Fowler.

The biggest buzz, as always, belonged to Woods.

Neither player had gained on leader Gary Woodland, who stood on 10-under par 130 after 36 holes. "And I blew it by 4 feet and then pulled the next one". He added a two-putt birdie at the 17th and ended the second round in a tie for 19th place, six shots back of Woodland. "I like my position going into the weekend".

To get his body ready for Sunday, Woods is likely slated for more ice baths and deep-tissue massages.

"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", Woods said. "It's soft, it's gettable, and you can't just go out there and make a bunch of pars".

Day, the 2015 US PGA Champion, will have to get hot on the closing stretch to give himself a final-round chance at a second career major title.

Only the U.S. Open at $12 million had more on the line.

He has only one other PGA Tour victory, one in Europe and two in Japan.

'I'm exhausted, I'm not going to lie to you, ' said Woods. "He ran away with a few, for sure, but he hung around for a lot". It felt like all that I remembered playing with Tiger all those years ago, when he was winning tournaments.

"It's a pretty intense environment out there".

As easy as it looks at times, Bellerive can still bite at any moment.

No one from the afternoon side of the draw finished more than 12 holes. But a wayward tee shot by someone going for the green could end up in the water guarding the right front.

Woodland still leads the way but there is a glut of talent close behind. He wound up finding it, but things only got worse from there.

"That self-belief has to come out and I feel like the last six to eight weeks has been a real positive for me".

Koepka nearly headed down that direction.

England's Wallace produced one of the most memorable moments of the tournament by claiming a "mindblowing" hole in one on the par-three 16th.

Finau was paired again with Furyk in round three while Schauffele was on three-under.

Woods and Fowler were among those just happy to get off the course. Rickie Fowler had just birdied the 10th hole and was at 7 under.
