Tony Finau ties PGA Championship record with 10 birdies

12 August 2018

If not for Woodland's triple on 10, they would be co-leaders, which would have really confused those fans who routinely mistake them for each other. "I'm hoping that it goes on for another two days".

He birdied the next two holes.

"I've worked my way into a chance to win this tournament just to throw it away on a bad decision", said Spieth. We are in business with a great look at an opening birdie.

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., was a part of the late wave that had its round suspended by the weather.

Woodland was one over par after seven holes before reeling off seven birdies in the next 10 on his way to a superb 64.

"The golf course is playing soft, it's gettable, you have to make birdies, " Woods said.

Perhaps it was easy for Woodland not to be overly impressed.

Like his final-round surge at The Open last month, excitement mounted as the 42-year-old briefly moved within two shots of the lead.

Koepka, who in June became the first man to win back-to-back US Opens since Curtis Strange in 1988-89, could become only the fourth player to win the US Open and PGA Championship in the same year, following fellow Americans Gene Sarazen in 1922, Ben Hogan in 1948 and Jack Nicklaus in 1980. This one missed, and only later did Koepka realize it was for 62. Major championship golf is amusing.

"I feel like, if I do what I'm supposed to do", Koepka said, "I should win the golf tournament". "I didn't even think of it". You know what, watch out for that guy; he's hanging around! . The plan was to finish the second round, make the cut and then immediately start the third round in threesomes off both tees.

Bernd Leno is expected to be preferred in goal to Petr Cech , with Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis the centre-back pairing. Given the truncated preseason he's had after heavy World Cup involvement, his energy and enthusiasm were impressive.

It was such a long day at the PGA Championship that some of them had grown stubble by the end of it.

"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".

Bellerive really had no defence.

Here's reaction from the top two golfers in the clubhouse, Woodland and Kisner. Woodland is among the most powerful players in golf. He gave himself numerous chances - and didn't convert enough of them. The 36-hole score of 130 is a record for the competition.

Koepka was at 8-under 132, two shots behind.

Dustin Johnson, the world's No. 1 player, had a 66 and joined Schwartzel and Thomas Pieters (66) at 133.

"A little frustrated at this place in general", Spieth said. But Koepka proved as hard as the course was soft.

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. "Having said that, I would have shot a much higher score yesterday". He's been the target of Mizzou hecklers ad nauseam during the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club, was the sole leader after the first and second rounds, and carded a triple-bogey on the 10th hole Saturday.

"It's been 16 pars in a row from yesterday to today, so hopefully I can break that run in the morning", McIlroy said.

In nearly 40 years as a sportswriter, I can't recall any organization doing as through a job supplying information as the PGA does for the fourth major.
