Tiger charges into the hunt as Koepka takes lead at 100th PGA

Share

Seeking to add a second major title to his 2013 Masters triumph, Scott will tee off in the last group at the year's final major alongside two-time US Open victor Koepka.

Rickie Fowler, also a close friend of Lyle's, is just three back. Tiger Woods was finished, and so were hundreds of the sunbaked fans who'd camped there all day, waiting as Woods marched around the course and up the leaderboard. "Hopefully, we can come back soon".

"I don't even really know if we have all really had time to reflect on it and let it sink in. But I think that a part of everyone's playing for Jarrod out here this week".

If he's going to win major No. 15 he'll need to outplay a generation that's only seen his greatness on YouTube, and that means he must be aggressive.

"But it was a big thing for me to hole than and go on to make a couple of birdies from there".

MAJOR MELTDOWNS. Jordan Spieth will nearly certainly have to wait at least another year to complete his career grand slam bid after a hot run up the leaderboard was destroyed by an eventful triple bogey.

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

The ball sailed right into the trees and hit a cart path, cannoning deep into the woods. [I] squatted a little on the tee, squatted back, and playing a draw, hit it way off the toe. In reality, I should have played the smart shot, just accepted par or bogey instead of trying to take the green.

Despite being eight shots back and tied 28th the Texan was not throwing in the towel.

It's like, 'Yeah, OK.' I don't know what to say to that.

"The greens were getting fuzzy, they're getting slow, and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough, " Woods said.

To top things off, weather blew in early in the afternoon (thunderstorms are always possible when you have your tournament in St. Louis late in the summer) and canceled play for the day at 4:35 PM Eastern, meaning after a full morning without golf, anyone who had planned on spending the day with the broadcast was out of luck.

Spieth wasn't the only player to have a triple bogey nightmare.

"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. He rained his short irons on the downy greens for five birdies and was two strokes off the lead as he made the turn, setting off a chain reaction of noise across Bellerive.

That's what impressed Furyk the most - not so much the five birdies, but Finau's response to the triple bogey. Another excellent birdie chance coming up for Woods. "It was nice to have that in my back pocket, (having) been there in that same situation, and came out on top". He was at 3-over par for the second round through nine holes and 4 over for the tournament, putting him in a tie for 111th.

Wallace hit a 5-iron from 232-yards for his first professional ace.

"I flushed it right into my zone". And we can't see where it lands into the shade, but when it landed the crowd started cheering and then it rolled in and they went mental and it kind of reverberated back to the tee and then I just went insane.
