Gary Woodland sets PGA Championship record before storm suspends play

Gary Woodland sets PGA Championship record before storm suspends play”

Can Woods overcome Koepka and finally claim his 15th major victory? Tiger Woods completed his second round late Saturday morning and sat six shots off the lead at -4 overall.

Matt Wallace is playing in his first PGA Championship and the 28 year old Londoner marked the occasion with a truly memorable shot to the par three 16th, as his five iron hopped twice and rolled into the hole for an ace.

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, who changed his sweat-soaked shot after four holes, lost ground with a three-putt bogey on the fifth, but bounced back in style with birdies on the sixth and seventh.

Finau was among five players who accompanied Furyk to France this summer for a scouting trip at Le Golf Nacional, the host course of the September 28-30 Ryder Cup matches.

"Obviously things haven't been going well for me this year".

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.

Finau, who double bogeyed No. 6 after his five birdies to start, did not have a par in the second round until the 10th hole. "Tomorrow is going to be a long day for a lot of us and try and get back at it early".

A former world number one and the 2013 Masters victor, Scott muscled his way into second place on 10-under, while Spaniard Jon Rahm (66) and Americans Rickie Fowler (69) and Gary Woodland (71) were three behind.

However, he could not sustain his momentum on the back nine.

LOUIS Tony Finau tried not to look at the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship as a Ryder Cup audition as he played alongside USA captain Jim Furyk.

"That self-belief has to come out and I feel like the last six to eight weeks has been a real positive for me".

A bogey on the 10th was instantly cancelled out by a tap-in birdie on the short 11th, but Woods then three-putted from 100 feet on the next after his approach from the rough just reached the front of the green. "You never know what can happen on the weekend".

Koepka birdied the eighth but missed a 19-foot birdie putt at nine for a 62, settling for a 63, matching the lowest round in tournament history.

Woods himself didn't have an answer earlier this week. Especially on a course that's playing so far under par. He stood at 7 under with eight holes left to play.

Jordan Spieth's career Grand Slam chances vanished with an ugly - and unusual - triple bogey on Saturday at the PGA Championship.

"A little frustrated at this place in general", Spieth said.

Two holes later, Johnson drove into a fairway bunker but got up-and-down from 86 yards for par.
