Tiger Woods in contention in final round

Adjust Comment Print

On Sunday at Bellerive Country Club, we finally got that vintage push to the finish from Tiger.

Topping it off, he sank the putt for a birdie (his fourth on the front nine) that put him at 11-under, two strokes off the lead as he makes the turn.

Woods completed a 66 in the delayed second round on Saturday morning and added another in round three, but ran out of steam after a front nine of 31 and 10 closing pars included a three-putt from 20 feet on the 17th.

"I thought I played really clean cards, really clean rounds", said Woods, who made eight birdies and three bogeys over the course of the two rounds.

"I wish my score was closer to the lead but not many guys are up there". 18's playing pretty short as well.

Woods failed to convert on both, despite having given himself excellent chances. Furyk then has four captain's picks to make on September 4. "It was a long day". The Australian is tied with Woods at 11 under as he tries to win for the first time in two years.

"It's not necessarily the physical, it's mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat, " he said.

Kavanaugh could be President Donald Trump's second addition to the high court, following Justice Neil Gorsuch. Kavanaugh was nominated 57 days before the announcement about a hearing date was made Friday afternoon.

The second round was to resume at 7 a.m. local time. But he missed 5-footers for par at the 10th and 12th holes surrounding a birdie at the 11th.

Koepka began two strokes back but quickly moved ahead by following a tap-in gain at the first with another birdie at the next, as Woodland bogeyed the second after finding water.

Birdies were not only everywhere, but necessary to stay in contention, and Spieth knew it, particularly at 17 - a par 5 where eagle is in play and birdie is a must. Brown, who's been to numerous PGA Championships in his life, said he hasn't seen crowds like these before. "Being in Tiger's group is always exciting". And hopefully I go out and play decent tomorrow and see what happens. "I'm getting a lot of support, which is nice".

In the third round, Finau made four birdies and three bogeys.

Being unable to score on the back nine has been a constant for Woods all week. To have Turner essentially go with old syndicated dramas all morning on Thursday and Friday while the year's final major kicks into gear remains a baffling decision.

There, he needed some help from the leaders to make it interesting, and the same might be required here. 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. This golf course is very gettable. He just found a way to bury his friend, playing partner and the world's top player, Johnson, and in doing so won the same tournament at 1 over that he won at 16 under the year before.
