Koepka Holds 2-stroke Lead; Tiger in Top 6

Masters concession prices in 2016. More

While Tiger Woods made noise with five birdies on the front nine to move rapidly up the tournament leader board, one of his biggest fans drew plenty of his own attention in the gallery.

Back-to-back bogeys from the 14th saw Koepka's lead cut to one, before a two-putt birdie at the 17th doubled his advantage over Scott - who mixed six birdies with a sole blemish during his round.

Ten and a half hours and 29 holes after he hit his first shot of the day, Woods finds himself again in contention at a major championship, four strokes back of leader Brooks Koepka in a tie for sixth.

You need only to see the tail to understand why.

He holed only one lengthy putt, the other four birdies coming from tap-in range, or close to it. "So I'll be looking to clean that up".

"Hopefully I can go out and keep playing the way I am, and if I keep playing the way I am, you never know where that will leave me tomorrow afternoon".

Conditions are sweltering at the St Louis track and Lowry must now wait until around 7pm (Irish time) to begin his third round, which would allow the Esker Hills man to get back to the hotel for a well-earned break. I'm getting a lot of KU and Mizzou people yelling back and forth.

"It's been such a hard thing I think for us to get our heads around because we have been removed from Jarrod and his family back in Australia and everything happening so suddenly last week and then this week".

He birdied the next two holes. His drive just missed the fairway, and his approach shot left him a 58-foot downhill putt. And so he might, he could, it's so easy to imagine, because of that experience, because of how he's driving the ball, hitting greens, staying steady.

Ronaldo finally reveals why he chose to play for Juventus
Ronaldo could be set to make his competitive debut for Juventus next week when the Serie A gets underway. As for his first goal, he said he has not even thought about it. "That's my job.

"Just very frustrated that I've worked my way into a chance to win this tournament, just to kind of throw it away on a bad decision", he said.

Woods may not have been happy with his putting but had to be pleased with the performance of his back. "So, yeah, special day for me today". Woodland, even with the lowest 36-hole score in 60 years of stroke play at the PGA Championship, still had a long way to go. The last few weeks have been good.

"I have my dad here to watch".

Once Turner finally came on the air at 2, things didn't get much better.

Elsewhere, Rory McIlroy sits well inside the cut on three under par with a solid 67. Former PGA champs Justin Thomas and Jason Day are only four behind Koepka, and one behind them is Open victor Francesco Molinari, who stared down Tiger in their Sunday pairing at Carnoustie.

"To give myself a little bit of confidence, I told myself I did the same thing in Phoenix", Woodland said referencing his win earlier this season at the Waste Management Phoenix Open where he shook off a Friday triple bogey with bounce back birdies. After his third straight birdie, at the eighth hole, that was it. He muscled it three feet past the hole, then pulled the comebacker off line and, after settling for a disappointing par, he briefly grabbed the putter with both hands, as if to bend it, before deciding better of it. Here are some positive and not-so-positive ways to view Woods' plight in the final round at Bellerive Country Club.

Woodland was one over par after seven holes before reeling off seven birdies in the next 10 on his way to a superb 64. I said to my caddie a couple of holes before it was the most fun I'd ever had and then that happened.

Padraig Harrington missed out on a place in round three.
