Koepka leads by two strokes after third round at PGA Championship

Koepka and Schwartzel match record low score at US PGA Championship Molinari continues rise up US PGA Championship leaderboard

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. Woods, who trailed leader Gary Woodland by six entering the third round, made four birdies on the front nine at Bellerive to go out in 31 and get within a few of the lead.

Lowry posted a magnificent 64 to finish his second round early on Saturday morning but his mixed round of three birdies and two bogeys left him four shots off the leader Brooks Koepka who leads the field on 12 under.

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.

Matt Wallace nailed a hole in one at the PGA Championship on Saturday.

"I think May is going to be a lot better for this golf tournament for sure". "So we'll see some putts go in".

Woods, a 14-time major champion in his comeback season after spinal fusion surgery, and McIlroy grinded to 70s in round one before huge crowds.

He parred every hole on the back nine and his 66 matched his lowest round in a major this year, but he was a little disappointed, not least with a three-putt at the par-five 17th.

"I feel like I've got a 63 in me tomorrow". He hit 8 of 9 greens on the back nine. 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. Watching Finau make all those birdies, Furyk "didn't say anything, but he was just shaking his head", Finau said.

Only a three-putt bogey at the fifth hole halted his progress, though he put the setback quickly behind him to birdie the next three holes. "Sometimes you are in your own mind and don't know where you are at". He converted the eagle putt to get to 8 under.

Koepka ran off three straight birdies after he made the turn and came to the par-5 ninth at seven-under for the round.

Woods himself didn't have an answer earlier this week.

McIlroy bogeyed the opening hole after flying his approach over the green and although he responded immediately with a birdie on the next, further dropped shots on the fourth and seventh saw him tumble down the leaderboard. He was at 7 under, three shots behind Woodland with eight holes to play.

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

"It was a little cut 3 wood back into the wind", Woodland said. "This course would be phenomenal in, and probably is phenomenal, if it's not playing so soft".

Woods was 3 over through seven holes of this championship, and he is 6 under over his next 18 holes and appeared to be gaining momentum.
