Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

Adam Scott

The 28-year-old two-time US Open champion sealed his third major title by firing a four-under-par 66 to finish 72 holes on 16-under 264 and defeat Woods by two strokes at Bellerive Country Club with Australia's Scott another shot adrift.

Woodland immediately recovered the stroke he lost to par by draining a 19-foot birdie putt on No. 3 to move back into a tie with Koepka, who birdied No. 5 to regain sole possession of the lead.

Tiger Woods birdied five of the first eight holes and charged into contention for his first major title since 2008 in Saturday's (Aug 11) third round of the PGA Championship.

"Hearing the crowd, and Tiger's performing great, it was like turning back the hands of the clock, " said Stewart Cink, who played with Woods and also shot 4 under to also finish four out of the lead.

He finished the tournament at 14-under 267 and was two back of Brooks Koepka's lead when he finished the round.

"I left pretty much every single putt short on the back nine", he said.

Sunday's final round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive was almost a complete throwback to the days of Tiger Woods' golf dominance. With a front pin on the seventh hole, he went some 25 feet beyond the flag and holed the putt, and then got up-and-down from a bunker on par-5 eighth.

"What he did at Shinnecock, just bombing it, and then he's doing the same thing here".

However, they will certainly need to be more clinical and penetrative if they are to build on last season's fine work. An unlikely goalscorer, N'Golo Kante opened the scoring after 34 minutes with the Blues' first shot on target.

"I told myself exactly that on 11 tee", Woodland said of his triple in Phoenix.

"The crowds here, they let you know what's going on", Koepka said with a big grin. It's an annual expectation for the PGA Championship, which already struggles for an identity and for the interest the other three majors never have trouble generating.

"It's been 16 pars in a row from yesterday to today, so hopefully I can break that run in the morning", McIlroy said.

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.

When people mocked Erin Hills as an unworthy U.S. Open test, Koepka answered them two months ago by acing what the USGA conceded was an unfair test at Shinnecock Hills, and he became the sport's first back-to-back national champ since Curtis Strange three decades earlier.

He now is No. 2 in the world, with a shot at overtaking Johnson in two weeks when the FedEx Cup playoffs start.

Spaniard Jon Rahm, halfway leader Gary Woodland and Rickie Fowler, hunting his long-awaited first major, are a further stroke behind.

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, needing only the PGA to complete a career Grand Slam, opened birdie-birdie but took a double bogey at the par-3 sixth then followed that with three consecutive birdies. Three golfers are at 9-under and Woods is among five golfers tied for sixth. "I was just trying to hit it 185 yards and obviously hit it 180 yards, but I think the wind switched on us a little bit". Look at that front nine.
