Gary Woodland matches 36-hole scoring record at PGA Championship

Gary Woodland matches 36-hole scoring record at PGA Championship

Brooks Koepka is the leader through three rounds at the PGA Championship.

Day, who finished second at the 2016 PGA Championship and tied ninth at last year's edition, is joined in a share of sixth by several others including defending champion Justin Thomas and Tiger Woods (66).

Woods is 10 under on the front 9 this week and two over on the back, due in large part to his bogey-double bogey start to the tournament after teeing off on 10 at Thursday.

World number 45 Li had enjoyed a solid major year - making the cut at the Masters, U.S. Open and British Open, and recording top-40 finishes in all three events.

"I knew the golf course would be very playable this morning so I thought if I came out and shot two under it would be a very good score", Lowry told RTE Sport.

He sits five shots back of clubhouse leader Gary Woodland, who maintained his place atop the leaderboard with a 66 elevating him to 10 under and one shot ahead of fellow American Kevin Kisner (64).

Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol. He finally made one at No. 10 and came back with still another birdie at No. 11 before play was suspended for the day.

He scored his first senior team goal with a lovely move around his defender and a fine finish to the far post. (It was) weird. A match where I needed six changes not three, [Three] weren't enough for me.

After completing his storm-delayed second round earlier in the day, Woods thrilled the galleries at the Bellerive Country Club by ripping through the first nine holes in just 31 shots to move within two shots of the lead.

Koepka is trying to become the first player since Woods to capture the U.S. Open and PGA in the same year.

"I've worked my way into a chance to win this tournament just to throw it away on a bad decision", said Spieth.

He made birdie on the par-four first hole, again on the back of a great approach shot which left him a one-metre putt, but a three-putt on the par-four fourth hole put him back to even par for the round.

Thomas shot 34 on his front nine. "St. Louis has never seen Tiger up close, so it's pretty insane and it makes it a lot more fun".

"You always feel like you've got something to prove, whether it be to yourself or somebody else", said Koepka, who will take a two-stroke lead into the final round following a third-round 66.

US Open champion Brooks Koepka fired a blistering 63, equalling the PGA Championship record for lowest round, to leapfrog into outright third at eight under. I said to my caddie a couple of holes before it was the most fun I'd ever had and then that happened. Rory McIlroy opened with seven straight pars, and then he belted a drive 359 yards on the par-5 eighth hole when the rain arrived.
