Koepka beats Tiger Woods to win US PGA, Scott third

Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round Weather and production choices led to very little golf being televised on Friday at the PGA Championship

Kopeka, who started the day two strokes back and took the lead after the second hole, stood at 13 under on the 11th tee box, Woodland at 7 under.

Woods was among 77 players who returned early on Saturday to complete the weather-delayed second round.

Despite a late slip-up, Brooks Koepka is still on top of the clubhouse at -12, but Adam Scott is trailing just two strokes behind him after shooting 66 on Saturday. Brown, whose family traditionally attends the PGA event every two years, was decked out in a full-length tiger costume as he followed around his favorite golfer Saturday.

Most of all, Koepka had to contend with the astounding level of noise and drama emanating from the group ahead. This, however, was one of those sporting moments it was simply a privilege to witness. Of course, this has been where any thought of a Tiger resurgence has ended this summer. 2018 is Woods' best year in half a decade, and the sport is better off for it.

After another errant drive on the 14th, the four-time PGA Championship victor suffered a costly bogey. That streak continued on the par-4 ninth hole, where his ball found the cart path. Playing out of it required a strong hook shot to the left to avoid two bunkers and darned if he didn't pull it off.

For the moment, all four major titles are now owned by players without full bag equipment deals. He missed only on the first hole at Bellerive Country Club when his putt stubbornly refused to fall.

But that was merely the start.

At the 17th, after ramming his eagle putt through the break, he missed the 4-footer coming back. No matter. Woods birdied the 12th and 13th.

"The greens were getting fuzzy and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough". At times, the entire 200 acres appeared to be jumping.

Woods had a similar outlook after his round: "Not just myself, but everyone's going to have to shoot low rounds". Back to one behind.

"[On Saturday], I was in there with Dustin, and everybody wanted a picture with Dustin", Koepka said. As cool as a Koepka, indeed. Kern was just one of three players who made it through his round without a bogey, joining Daniel Berger (66) and Jon Rahm (66).

Lowry carded six birdies in his six-under round of 64 and is well poised for a crack at his first ever Major win. As for the noise, think Anfield on a joyous Champions League night. The Australian is tied with Woods at 11 under as he tries to win for the first time in two years. He shot 68 and tied for sixth.

"I'm going to have to play aggressive", he said.
