Brooks Koepka Leads, Tiger Woods in Contention at PGA Championship

Players have donned yellow ribbons in support and made significant donations towards the Lyle family trust that will help support his two young daughters.

If he plays like he looks on Sunday, they will.

Victor of the past two U.S. Opens, Koepka took the lead at the PGA Championship on Saturday to put himself in position to win a third career major at the age of 28.

"Another low round", Woods said on what it will take to win. "Because of that, you got to make birdies". 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. The locals have enjoyed watching Koepka hit the long ball. His resulting attempt to punch back out in to play hit another tree and ricocheted out of bounds. Woodland needed to hit a crisp enough shot out of the rough to cover the water between him and the green.

Despite being eight shots back and tied 28th the Texan was not throwing in the towel. "I've been so in the zone, you don't know where you are". "I know that that's in the bag".

"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.

Paul Dunne, meanwhile, will also miss the cut as the Greystones native is five over with one to play. Plenty went missing; we saw none of Tony Finau's insane no-par roller coaster front nine (7 birdies, a triple, and a bogey). "And I just wish I could have got myself a couple more shots closer to the lead, especially with the way 17 is playing, moving the tee way up like that. It was nice to have that in my back pocket, been there in that same situation, and came out on top".

A superb approach to the green on the par-four 12th left him with a two-metre putt for birdie, which he duly nailed.

That means Justin Tomas has tied him for the lead at 11 under!

"Best shot of my life probably".

WATFORD finished 14th last season but could struggle to stay in the top tier this term. "But fans come to watch the team". Two Premier League new boys are in action this afternoon as Fulham host Crystal Palace and Cardiff head to Bournemouth .

No one from the afternoon draw completed more than 12 holes.

"I flushed it right into my zone".

"I thought, it's probably Tiger's last time coming to St. Louis, so I might as well go all out", Brown said.

Wallace has jumped from the Alps Tour, to the Challenge Tour to the European Tour in rapid time.

"The golf course is playing soft, it's gettable, you have to make birdies, " Woods said.

"He's a cool dude and very good fun out there".

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. And if the putter feels good and stays hot on the weekend, just try and make some kind of a run.

"So it kept the door open for something to happen like that and it did".

In nearly 40 years as a sportswriter, I can't recall any organization doing as through a job supplying information as the PGA does for the fourth major.
