Koepka Holds 2-stroke Lead; Tiger in Top 6

Koepka Holds 2-stroke Lead; Tiger in Top 6

Tiger Woods in his Sunday red is creating some more major championship magic at Bellerive.

Brooks Koepka poses with the Wanamaker Trophy after winning the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club.

At four under par Spieth ended the day eight off the lead and Rory McIlroy's hopes of ending his major drought also vanished after a 71 left him 10 behind.

"Another low round", Woods said.

As for Woods? He felt the love, and he gave it right back to St. Louis. Brooks Koepka holds the lead at 14-under through nine holes.

"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. And I made sure on 17 I did. Look at that front nine.

Koepka was responsible for that.

Australian Adam Scott is two behind him on -10, while a trio of Gary Woodland, Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm sit just behind him on -9.

Tiger Woods was the center of attention during Round 3 of the PGA Championship. He added, "A lot happened, but to post 10 birdies in a major championship is pretty special".

Koepka has won three of the last six majors he played, and two of three this year alone.

The 14-time major victor has suffered years of injuries but now, at the age of 42, looks to be heading back to form 11 years after his last taste of major success. He certainly gets points for showmanship and a willingness to attract some eyeballs, but he doesn't quite get full marks for creativity; Brown said he remembered seeing another fan do something similar about a year ago, and decided this would be the ideal time to go for it.

And yes, that includes Tiger Woods, too.

However, after good par saves at 10 and 11, Koepka missed great birdie chances on the next two greens and suddenly found himself tied for the lead with a resurgent Scott, who holed from six feet at the 13th for his fifth birdie in seven holes around the turn.

Thomas Bjorn might have seen it coming. Earlier in the week, as he was cleaning out his locker after withdrawing with an injury, he thought back to Woods getting into contention at Carnoustie last month at the British Open.

"It started with the first putt, just ran it by", Woods said after his round. Woods was finally here and it is fair to suggest that, outside of the Ryder Cup, the Sunday roars have never been more vocally expressed. Seemed like everybody was between 2- and 4- or 5-under par. He did well to advance it, but had to save par from a bunker.

Thousands of spectators watched Woods sink a 17-foot birdie putt on the first hole and drop his approach to four feet setting up a birdie at the second.

Woods broke with his own convention by waiting to warmly congratulate Koepka as the champion walked from the course.

"It's tough to beat when the guy hits it 340 down the middle", Woods said.
