Tiger Woods remains in the hunt at US PGA Championship halfway stage

Tiger Woods remains in the hunt at US PGA Championship halfway stage

Five-times major champion Mickelson arrived at the PGA Championship 10th in the standings, and did not even come close to making the halfway cut, shooting four-over-par 144 to miss out by four strokes at Bellerive.

A four-under third round by the 14-time major-winner took him to nine-under and four behind leader Brooks Koepka, who had four holes remaining.

Kisner shot 29 on the back nine - his first nine - and was threatening to shoot a tournament-record 62 but bogeyed the final hole and settled for 64. Woods had his mojo back early in the round and was sitting pretty at three-under par before the delay.

Playing partner McIlroy was a shot further back after returning a 67 when the delayed second round was completed on Saturday morning, but the four-time major victor got off to a poor start in round three.

"It's a good position to be in and there's a lot of holes to be played", Schwartzel said. "I think we'll see some putts go in". And then his round was derailed - but only temporarily - when he came up a foot short of the green on the par-3 sixth hole, went into the water and made triple bogey. "There were good signs that carried over to today, and hopefully tomorrow it gets better and better".

Woods disappointingly closed his back nine with in 35 for a 4-under 66 overall.

The PGA Championship moves to May next year, which isn't going to do the event any favors in terms of standing out; the only possible benefit is coming earlier in the golf calendar, between the Masters and the U.S. Open, but that's not going to make it feel like a bigger event. "I kind of said last night I felt like there was a 65 in the way I was playing and just have to do it".

It accused U.S. negotiators of going against the intentions of President Donald Trump and the spirit of the summit in Singapore. According to the website , the plan has been rejected by North Korean negotiators multiple times over the past two months.

Resuming his weather-delayed round on the 12th hole Saturday, the Lehi resident made two more birdies and two bogeys to finish.

Koepka and Johnson, two Americans who would not look out of place in a National Football League locker room, simply overpowered Bellerive but South African Schwartzel, not known for his work with the driver, showed there are other ways to tame the parkland layout. "I've been so in the zone, you don't know where you are". He converted the eagle putt to get to 8 under.

Asked what Furyk's reaction to all the birdies was, Finau said, "He didn't say anything, but he was just shaking his head". He fought for a 1-over 71 in the first round but had gotten it to 1 under before his struggles at the 17th.

Successive birdies for Woodland on the second and third, however, saw him retake the lead.

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, ranked eighth, can complete a career Grand Slam with a victory this week.

"Everyone's going to have to shoot low rounds", said Woods.

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