Early stumbles blunt charges by Tiger, Fowler at PGA Championship

12 August 2018

Shane Lowry could not repeat the heroics of his second round 64, however, the Offaly man remains in the hunt for his maiden major at the PGA Championship following a one-under 69 at Bellerive Country Club.

"Records are meant to be broken, I guess", said Koepka, who needed to drain a 22-footer for birdie at his last hole to grab the record outright.

A former world number one and the 2013 Masters victor, Scott muscled his way into second place on 10-under, while Spaniard Jon Rahm (66) and Americans Rickie Fowler (69) and Gary Woodland (71) were three behind.

Woodland, who started working with Molinari's putting coach Phil Kenyon at Carnoustie, had held a one-shot overnight lead and recovered from a bogey on the 14th with a brilliant eagle from five feet on the 17th.

In stark contrast, the 132-yard third hole played to an average of just 2.563 thanks to a favourable front pin position which saw 55 birdies and no bogeys from the morning starters. Woods had his mojo back early in the round and was sitting pretty at three-under par before the delay.

'It's not right': Nadal unhappy with controversial Wimbledon decision
Nadal then squandered three break points in the 15th game before saving a match point in the 16th with a pitch-perfect drop shot. The second set was nearly a repeat of the first, and it was the same scoreline as Djokovic opened up a commanding lead.

Through 16 holes, Wallace was tied for 20th at five under par. In second place after 36 holes, he will automatically make the team with a first or second placing on Sunday, and perhaps even with a third.

Other players to finish their round today included US Open champion Brooks Koepka and South African Charl Schwartzel, who each missed putts on the last which would have given them record equalling rounds of 62.

"There have been ups and downs and I just feel like I'm starting to play a better golf game".

Ten years removed from his 14th and most recent major title, he displayed shades of his pre-back surgery greatness with a near-flawless front nine on the rain-soaked layout.

"I thought I played really clean cards, really clean rounds".

That holds true even if the two teams that are playing are arguably two of the most entertaining teams in the tournament. ITV is showing today's match between England and Belgium , with coverage starting at 2.30pm and kick-off set for 3pm.

"Hopefully I can go out and keep playing the way I am, and if I keep playing the way I am, you never know where that will leave me tomorrow afternoon".

Tiger Woods had three birdies through seven holes as he tried to get in range.

'I'm exhausted, I'm not going to lie to you, ' said Woods. I didn't even think of it.

The 28-year-old Englishman seemed to not believe it, throwing his hands in the air. He also answered any questions as to whether he will be able to play two matches in a day at the Ryder Cup next month.

Jordan Spieth's chances of claiming the win he needs to complete the career grand slam looked to have disappeared as he suffered a nightmare triple-bogey seven on the 12th.
