US PGA Championship: Brooks Koepka leads, Tiger Woods in contention

Golf Channel host praises Gary Woodland, throws shade at Mizzou during PGA Championship | The Kansas City Star

That led Rich Lerner of the Golf Channel to make a comment that is sure to bring a smile to the face of Jayhawks fans while drawing a sigh from Mizzou fans.

He lost a stroke on the next hole, though, dropping his first bogey of the day on No. 6.

"It's going to be a long day", Fowler said. Woods spun a wedge from about 65 yards some 5 feet past the cup at the par-4 fourth and coaxed in the putt for a crucial par.

Numerous back injuries and personal issues continued to disrupt his career, but fusion surgery a year ago has seemingly revived the 14-time major victor. He made birdie at the 11th to reach 12 under.

"Twenty-nine holes, it's not necessarily the physical, it's this mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat". Players try to downplay it, and I've downplayed it over the years myself because you're trying to downplay it yourself a little bit, but it's a pretty intense environment out there.

"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", said Woods, who sweated through four shirts in his opening five holes.

That's what impressed Furyk the most - not so much the five birdies, but Finau's response to the triple bogey. And hopefully I go out and play decent tomorrow and see what happens.

"It's fun to play well in a major and feel the tingle of excitement", Cink said.

No one caught Woodland, meaning his 36-hole score of 130 stood as the PGA Championship record.

Woods could not hit a fairway at all on the front nine - in fact he hit exactly zero - but somehow kept pushing forward. After a par at No. 9, he rattled off three more birdies over his next four holes.

"There have been ups and downs and I just feel like I'm starting to play a better golf game".

Woods, ranked 51st, won his most recent major title at the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational but showed solid form last month by leading on the back nine Sunday at last month's British Open.

Woods, whose earlier charge on the easier front nine raised the massive gallery's excitement to fever pitch, was among a logjam of six trailing by four shots.

He again got up and down for par after a wild drive at the par-4 fifth. He just found a way to bury his friend, playing partner and the world's top player, Johnson, and in doing so won the same tournament at 1 over that he won at 16 under the year before.

The quiet American looked set to match the largest 54-hole lead in tournament history when he bolted five shots clear after 13 holes from a large group including Tiger Woods at Bellerive. It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags. "You're going to have to make some birdies".
