Koepka holds off Woods to win PGA Championship

It was also the lowest final round in a major championship Woods has shot his entire career.

Adam Scott is playing with Koepka and isn't going away.

Shane Lowry got to ten under par early on the back nine, but again was just too far back from Koepka who kept his aggressive style throughout.

Scott hung around by making big putts, just like he hoped, and was tied for the lead until Koepka's birdies.

Sometimes you win the major and sometimes the major wins you - the former would be an accurate depiction of Koepka's performance.

"I feel like I played well today", said Woods, who only returned to competitive golf in November after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April previous year.

Those errors brought Woods back into contention. Only good ol' Midwestern hospitality could save this PGA Championship from itself, along with appreciative, single-day crowds that seemed big enough to fill Busch Stadium for a three-game series with the Chicago Cubs.

But he was there on Sunday, getting stronger as the day went on, and making it very hard for Jim Furyk not to pick him for the Ryder Cup team in a few weeks. Woods shot a 64 Sunday, but it wasn't enough to overcome the victor. It also tied the major championship record that Henrik Stenson set at Royal Troon two years ago in the British Open.

They could have led by three or four in the first half, but only Raheem Sterling found a route past Petr Cech before the break. Sterling in the first half, a double save from a Mahrez freekick, denying Sergio Aguero who was one-on-one in the second half.

After changing his sweat-soaked shirt, Woods lost ground with a three-putt bogey on the fifth, but bounced back in style with birdies on the sixth, seventh and eighth. "It looks like I'm going to come up a little short".

The 42-year-old looked certain to end a string of pars when he fired a superb approach into the par-five 17th, only to charge the eagle attempt four feet past the hole and miss the return.

In fact, he arrived at the Bellerive Golf Course looking utterly cool, calm and collected.

Thousands of spectators watched Woods sink a 17-foot birdie putt on the first hole and drop his approach to four feet setting up a birdie at the second.

She accompanied Koepka as he walked off the 18th hole as the event champion. He has been motivated by more serious moments, from being left off the "notable scores" section of TV coverage at tournaments and even last week, when he was not summoned for a TV interview to preview the PGA Championship.

After failing to hit a fairway in regulation on the front nine, the four-time PGA Championship victor needed only 10 putts in an extraordinary display of scrambling.

Woods said he had trouble judging the speed of the greens, especially on the back nine, and his three-putt on 17 was the result of an over-correction. "I think everyone my age admired him growing up", Koepka said afterwards.
