Tiger Woods tied for 6th at PGA Championship after third-round 66

Gary Woodland and Kevin Kisner are in prime position halfway through the 100th PGA Championship

If not for Woodland's triple on 10, they would be co-leaders, which would have really confused those fans who routinely mistake them for each other. "So, yeah, special day for me today".

Lowry hailed his own putting throughout round two and was delighted to post a flawless round with no dropped shots throughout, and holing a very important putt to save par on the sixth hole (his 15th).

After birdieing five of his first eight holes and playing the front side in 31 strokes, Woods stalled on the back nine, failing to convert any birdie opportunities and squandering a attractive chance at the par-5 17th, where he three-putted for par.

"It's not necessarily physical", Woods said.

Birdies were abundant early, a hint that scoring conditions might rival those of Friday, when three players made a run at matching the all-time low major round of 62 by Branden Grace of South Africa from last year's British Open.

Only a three-putt bogey at the fifth hole halted his progress, though he put the setback quickly behind him to birdie the next three holes.

Thunderstorms then forced play to be suspended mid-afternoon and later abandoned for the day, with the second round set to resume at 7am local time (1pm BST) on Saturday.

And the degree of time needed to prepare for a long day of golf at the PGA Championship is undoubtedly tied to the myriad maladies associated with the player.

Perhaps it was easy for Woodland not to be overly impressed.

Tiger Woods gave himself a fighting change of winning his first major in more than a decade with a second straight four-under 66 Saturday to trail PGA Championship leader Brooks Koepka by four shots going into the final round in St. Louis.

Like his final-round surge at The Open last month, excitement mounted as the 42-year-old briefly moved within two shots of the lead. This one missed, and only later did Koepka realize it was for 62.

Idris Elba fuels speculation that he’s the next James Bond
Elba, 45, has previously dismissed rumours and said he had not had any discussions with the studio about taking over the role. The latest round of speculation appears to have begun with a report in the Daily Star last week.

"I feel like, if I do what I'm supposed to do", Koepka said, "I should win the golf tournament".

"For 29 holes I made three bogeys and played pretty clean - two of those were three putts. You never know what can happen on the weekend".

And then Charl Schwartzel made it 16 players with his eight-birdie round of 63.

A crowd of reporters laughed at Koepka's retelling, but it's clear this is one golfer who doesn't often find real or imagined slights amusing. The plan was to finish the second round, make the cut and then immediately start the third round in threesomes off both tees. 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. There aren't putts that you're afraid that they're going to get away from you.

Bellerive really had no defence. "But being receptive, that's my only hope". The 36-hole score of 130 is a record for the competition.

Woodland and the rest of the field are chasing Koepka, who has won the past two U.S. Opens.

Spieth has battled with his game all year, and his confidence isn't at its peak.

It moved him to five under on his first weekend appearance at a major after making the cut.

"Could've been a little closer, " Woods said. But Koepka proved as hard as the course was soft. Watching Finau make all those birdies, Furyk "didn't say anything, but he was just shaking his head", Finau said. "Having said that, I would have shot a much higher score yesterday".

Woods first had to complete 11 holes of the second round early Saturday morning, also finishing with a 66.
