Tom Keegan: Wild Woodland week to end with a round with Tiger

Today, at the PGA Championship, Woods is starting his final round just four shots back of leader Brooks Koepka and he knows he's in the hunt.

On fire: Brooks Koepka celebrates after making his birdie putt on the 15th hole during the final round of the PGA Championship.

Then he drilled his tee shot at the 10th right down the middle. Former PGA champs Justin Thomas and Jason Day are only four behind Koepka, and one behind them is Open victor Francesco Molinari, who stared down Tiger in their Sunday pairing at Carnoustie.

McIlroy mixed four birdies with as many bogeys in a final-round 70 at Bellerive, finishing outside the top 50 on two under par and extending his major drought to four years.

"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. Woods had to settle for a 66, and by the time everyone else came through the 17th hole, he slipped back to a tie for sixth, four shots out of the lead.

The four-time USPGA victor is four shots off the lead heading into the final round at St Louis, with Brooks Koepka now leading the field.

"You're going to have to keep firing". And hopefully I go out and play decent tomorrow and see what happens. Furyk then has four captain's picks to make on September 4. It failed him all day Saturday, when he could not convert birdie putts to close his second round and throughout his third round during a 29-hole day in the St. Louis heat. The golfer played 28 holes after his second round was cut short due to severe weather on Friday.




There were signs low scoring was ripe for the taking with Spain's Rafa Cabrera Bello and England's Tyrrell Hatton both five-under for the day after 14 holes.

Woods had made the ideal start by holing from 15 feet for birdie on the first and five feet for another on the second, before nearly chipping in on the fourth after finding trouble off the tee.

"As much as I can", Brown said of trying to follow Woods throughout his round. Plenty went missing; we saw none of Tony Finau's insane no-par roller coaster front nine (7 birdies, a triple, and a bogey).

"I don't really feel from memory that I was ever really in contention on a Sunday at the PGA, although I've had some good results", Scott said. "You should see the best players in the world come to the top, and that's what you have".

"I can think of plenty of people along the way telling me I'll be nothing", he had said the other day, "working at McDonald's, doing things like that".

That put him at 10-under 130, breaking by one the PGA Championship record and tying the 36-hole score for all majors. After his third straight birdie, at the eighth hole, that was it.
