Tiger Woods hangs in there at the turn in the PGA Championship

He finished his second round in the morning after play was suspended Friday afternoon, and came right back out on the golf course making birdies.

Armed with a two-shot lead overnight, Koepka made a confident start when he holed from eight feet for birdie at the first, but he opened the door for the chasing pack when errant drives at the fourth and fifth led to bogeys and trimmed his advantage to one. "So I had to kind of figure this out on my own and it's been really hard, it's a lot harder than people think".

"And I really hit some great shots the next couple of holes, gave myself a lot of chances for birdie, and made a couple of them". "And I'm just very pleased at what I've done so far. going from where I've come from, to now over the past year, it's been pretty cool".

Woods, with a 2:35 p.m.

Scott, who had posted only one top-10 in his last 13 major starts, then pulled his drive way left at the last and could not salvage a par to ensure that Woods finished alone in second place, with Scott's 67 leaving him three adrift of the champion.

For the second major in a row the reports of the Woods resurrection proved to be somewhat exaggerated. What you see is what he does on the golf course.

That left Woodland a shot behind Kisner going into the front nine - where the pair continued to exchange the lead in a thrilling battle.

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. That's just the nature of the way it's playing right now. It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags. "Because of that, you got to make birdies".

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 made a bit of a run". Mickelson is still expected to be one of captain Jim Furyk's four at-large picks, with three coming on September 4 and the final one coming on September 10.

"I've worked my way into a chance to win this tournament just to throw it away on a bad decision", said Spieth. "He's the reason I'm playing". He missed only on the first hole at Bellerive Country Club when his putt stubbornly refused to fall.

Bellerive has been lined with massive galleries, and Woods applauded them for their support.

"As much as I can", Brown said of trying to follow Woods throughout his round. "Not only supportive, but just so positive".

"It was nice to have that in my back pocket, been there in that same situation and came out on top".
