Tiger Woods in contention in final round

Shane Lowry is bloody killing it at the USPGA Championships

Shane Lowry is bloody killing it at the USPGA Championships

"I didn't do that, I rapped it past the hole and missed the putt". Three golfers are at 9-under and Woods is among five golfers tied for sixth. The day was over-except no, not quite.

Woodland is second to Brooks Koepka (1.59) in the tournament in strokes gained off the tee (1.255).

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 US captain Jim Furyk.

Gary Woodland's charge to his first major championship victory took an unexpected detour on Saturday at Bellerive's 10 hole, the byproduct of a surreal series of events.

A superb approach to the green on the par-four 12th left him with a two-metre putt for birdie, which he duly nailed.

The best possible fix in the short-term: show more live golf from more players. Big Koepka fan? Huge Justin Thomas enthusiast? And, earlier this summer before The Open, they were seen at Wimbledon.

Woods continued to give himself opportunities with some solid play between tee to green, but was unable to convert any of the birdie chances in a run of 10 straight pars.

"It's not necessarily the physical, it's mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat, " he said. "I didn't really feel like there was a difference at all".

Tiger Woods is about 30 minutes away from playing one of his biggest rounds of golf in about 10 years.

He has not made a putt of longer than 17 feet over three days, and has only made five putts of more than 10 feet all week.

The Offaly man was out on course early this morning and clearly in the zone.

. A little boy in a neon shirt perched on a tree branch above them.

"I felt I was headed in the right direction", said Woods, who was at 3 under. Instead, he may have overcorrected. He's the first Utah resident to make the cut in all four majors in one year since Sandy's Mike Weir in 2008. So there's no feeding putts.

Now, if he can only get the putter to cooperate. At The Open after taking the lead on the back nine, he went double-bogey and bogey before playing the last six holes in 1 under. It's his best finish in a major and this is his 28th. Somehow, he emerged, although his ball found the rough alongside the green. It will take a close-to-perfect round.

He put a handsome swing on it, ending with a pose that would make a flawless photo in a book on golf fundamentals on the page showing what a finish is supposed to look like. He'll have to hope for Koepka to stumble, which he doesn't often do, not once he's wrangled the leaderboard as well as he has at Bellerive. The only person on the course who wasn't convinced, it seems, was Woods himself. The backwards hat and sunglasses scream, "I WANT TO WIN MAJOR NUMBER 15!"

Woods is by no means the favorite.

Woods occupies another larger group behind on eight-under, heading into an exciting final day of the final major of the year.

Today, at the PGA Championship, Woods is starting his final round just four shots back of leader Brooks Koepka and he knows he's in the hunt.
