Tiger Woods in contention in final round

Gary Woodland

Woods was searching for a Sunday rally and a 15th major championship, plus more: the roars around Bellerive suggested that Woods carried the hopes of the entire sporting world on his back. Rickie Fowler has a chance to win this thing at age 29, and to finally hand off the scarlet letters BPNTWAM (Best Player Never To Win A Major) to some other poor soul.

"They have been unbelievable", Woods said of the fans.

Those errors brought Woods back into contention. And Scotty played unbelievably well and so did Tiger.

By the turn, he held the outright lead at seven under and appeared set to crown a stunning comeback with his 15th major title.

Even with two bogeys, Woods shot 64 for his lowest final round in a major, giving him his best shot at a top title since he last won the US Open in 2008.

"I feel like I played well today", said Woods, who only returned to competitive golf in November after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April a year ago. "They definitely made me question it there for a bit or think about it, for sure".

It looks like we're all going to have a hell of a lot of fun finding out.

Koepka was responsible for that.

Fantastic from the very first ball". "To get that far in front, it is testament to the partnership between Jonny and Woakes". The chances of India surviving this Test match are dim but for a resolute resistance in the second innings.

Shortly after 5 p.m., he had a 20-foot putt on the 16th green that would've tied him with Koepka, who was two holes behind but may as well have been playing on another course compared to the frenzy in front of him.

Despite not walking away with his first PGA Tour win since 2013, the 100th PGA Championship will always be remembered for Tiger's incredible performance.

The five-time major victor has also been on every U.S. Presidents Cup team dating to 1994. He certainly gets points for showmanship and a willingness to attract some eyeballs, but he doesn't quite get full marks for creativity; Brown said he remembered seeing another fan do something similar about a year ago, and decided this would be the flawless time to go for it. "Impossible. Tiger Woods, ladies and gentlemen". Eastern tee time, begins the day at 8-under and is one of 10 golfers within range of Brooks Koepka, the leader at 12-under.

You need only to see the tail to understand why.

Despite the long, hot day, Tiger was feeling the love from the St. Louis crowd.

Woods just missed reeling off three straight birdies at the start of play. Woods resumed on the eighth hole, where he had a wedge shot from 70 yards that he knocked close for a birdie. That was as good as it got. The kicker came at the par 5 17th. He did well to advance it, but had to save par from a bunker.

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.
