Tiger Woods gets in the hunt despite his putting problems

Poulter is playing his fifth straight week

"You should see the best players in the world come to the top".

For Woods, that meant stirring hours before the 7 a.m. local tee time to go through a stretching and therapy routine that is required of a guy who has had four back surgeries.

"I can really tune in in the majors and I have no idea why", he said.

To top things off, weather blew in early in the afternoon (thunderstorms are always possible when you have your tournament in St. Louis late in the summer) and canceled play for the day at 4:35 PM Eastern, meaning after a full morning without golf, anyone who had planned on spending the day with the broadcast was out of luck.

"This golf course is stacked right now, and everyone is bunched", he said.

So coming into the 100th PGA Championship, he wasn't exactly burning up the prognosticators picks to win and, in the process, complete the career Grand Slam.

Koepka, who missed the Masters with a left wrist injury, opened birdie-birdie to grab the lead after playing partner Woodland made bogey at the second, but Woodland birdied the third hole to pull level.

The ball sailed right into the trees and hit a cart path, cannoning deep into the woods. [I] squatted a little on the tee, squatted back, and playing a draw, hit it way off the toe. He wound up with triple bogey, and scrambled to get back in the mix.

"He's got a great head on his shoulders", Furyk said. Six shots back, with plenty of possibilities.

"I know I can shoot around a 7- or 8-under around here", he said.

"If I can get off to a hot start there and play the rest of the golf course really well, I know I have a chance to win this golf tournament".

Pogba said "everybody was on the same page" in the France dressing room, from manager Didier Deschamps to the staff and players. It's going to be easier and it makes the team go higher. "I always love this club".

Spieth wasn't the only player to have a triple bogey nightmare.

That left Woods five strokes off the pace of U.S. compatriot Koepka, who birdied five of his first nine holes to make the turn on 13-under par, three shots ahead of Americans Rickie Fowler and Gary Woodland with Australian Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion, and American Kevin Kisner another stroke adrift. Three shots behind at the turn, he and Kevin Kisner were in a front bunker. American Gary Woodland was leading the field with a daunting clubhouse total of -10 but there were birdies to be had.

"It was nice", Woodland told reporters.

Those birdies after his big blunder stood out to Finau, one of only 11 players to make the cut in all four majors this year. "It was nice to have that in my back pocket, been there in that same situation, and came out on top". After making a bogey at No. 4, he rolled in a 33-foot putt for birdie at the par-3 No. 6 hole.

"The only outcome I'm seeing any differently would have been I just shouldn't have hit a 5-iron". An early birdie in his second round pushed him to -5.

"Best shot of my life probably".

Whether the magic is still there, we shall have to wait and see. "So, yeah, special day for me today".

Wallace has jumped from the Alps Tour, to the Challenge Tour to the European Tour in rapid time.

He then won the Open de Portugal in 2017 and has two wins this season at the Hero Indian Open and BMW International Open.

"He's a cool dude and very good fun out there". Woods resumed on the eighth hole, where he had a wedge shot from 70 yards that he knocked close for a birdie.
