Woodland hangs onto lead as rain shortens Day 2 of PGA Championship

Eldrick Woods wasn't the only "Tiger" turning heads Saturday during the third round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive.

Tiger Woods is tied for 23rd at 3-under-par, but only got in seven holes before the suspension.

Joining Woods at eight-under were second-ranked defending champion Justin Thomas, fellow Americans Kevin Kisner and Rickie Fowler and Belgium's Thomas Pieters.

Even with back-to-back bogeys on the back nine, Koepka had a 4-under 66 for a two-shot lead over Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion who has been struggling through his worst season in almost two decades. Woods slid his lag putt by the hole, then missed a short comeback putt for par.

Victorian native Marc Leishman has dropped three shots to sink to two over alongside Queenslander Cameron Smith.

A 12-under 198 total still left Koepka within sight of his third major title in 14 months, but the two-times U.S. Open champion's grip on the Wanamaker Trophy had loosened.

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.

The victor of the 2018 PGA Championship will take home nearly $2 million.

Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round
When he walked off the course, Koepka's two-day total of eight-under 132 was two behind the 10-under pace set by Gary Woodland . Mickelson finished four over to miss the cut at the PGA Championship at Bellerive, his second straight missed cut in a PGA.

"For 29 holes I made three bogeys and played pretty clean - two of those were three putts".

The third round will be played in groups of three, teeing off from hole No. 1 and hole No. 10, about 30 minutes after the second round on Saturday. The previous was the 1980 U.S. Open won by Jack Nicklaus, who shot 63 in the first round at Baltusrol along with Tom Weiskopf. Needing to go low to put himself in contention for the final round, Woods had an ideal start to his round at Bellerive Country Club.

"I've worked my way into a chance to win this tournament just to throw it away on a bad decision", said Spieth. "So I just got to be a little more aware of and make the adjustments better than I did today". "I think we'll see some putts go in". He's the first Utah resident to make the cut in all four majors in one year since Sandy's Mike Weir in 2008.

"I could've been a little bit closer, (but) I've got a shot going into tomorrow".

"You always feel like you've got something to prove, whether it be to yourself or somebody else", said Koepka, who will take a two-stroke lead into the final round following a third-round 66.

'I actually played well on the back nine in both rounds, ' insisted Woods, with good reason. Rory McIlroy opened with seven straight pars, and then he belted a drive 359 yards on the par-5 eighth hole when the rain arrived.

"If you hit the ball in the right spots on the greens, there's not a single putt out here that you are afraid of, " he said.
