Woods remains in US PGA Championship hunt but McIlroy challenge fades

"If I do what I'm supposed to, I should win", he said confidently after carding 66 for a 12-under-par total of 198, two strokes ahead of Australian Adam Scott (65) and three in front of Spain's Jon Rahm and Americans Rickie Fowler and Gary Woodland.

Captain's assistant Tiger Woods of the U.S. Team and Erica Herman look on during Saturday four-ball matches of the Presidents Cup at Liberty National Golf Club on September 30, 2017 in Jersey City, New Jersey. "And I blew it by 4 feet and then pulled the next one".

The chances of a home victor with nine Americans in the top 15, including leader Gary Woodland, double US Open champion Brooks Koepka and world number one Dustin Johnson. "You never know what can happen on the weekend".

Tiger Woods has been sensational in the third round of tournaments throughout the 2018 season, and he entered this week with the third-best Round 3 scoring average on the PGA Tour.

Fox started on the back nine at Bellerive Country Club in Missouri, shooting even par through his first nine holes. But he missed 5-footers for par at the 10th and 12th holes surrounding a birdie at the 11th. "I knew I was playing well and had made a few birdies".

"It kind of feels a little bit like home to me, and I'm very familiar with it, the way it's going to react", Cink said. But he demands consideration as a better, more complete and more delicate player than that.

To see Koepka flirt with vaporizing a loaded leaderboard like this one maybe shouldn't be surprising. He is the ultimate big game hunter, and he'll go for his third major win in his last six starts on Sunday.

Even so, one misstep and it might be easy to get lost at this major.

Microchip's shares fell 10.5 percent, the biggest decliner on the S&P, after it forecast disappointing second-quarter revenue. Shares of trade-sensitive companies declined, with Boeing , 3M and Caterpillar down between 2.3 percent and 4 percent.

"It's a good position to be in and there's a lot of holes to be played", Schwartzel said. "They really get my attention". And I made sure on 17 I did. Four wins for a 28-year-old is pretty good. It also tied the 36-hole record for all majors, matching Jordan Spieth at the 2015 Masters, Martin Kaymer at the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 and Brandt Snedeker (Royal Lytham & St. Annes in 2012) and Nick Faldo (Muirfield in 1992) at the British Open.

A crowd of reporters laughed at Koepka's retelling, but it's clear this is one golfer who doesn't often find real or imagined slights amusing.

He was the rare outlier, a relatively unproven player among the logjam of established champions who will be chasing Koepka on Sunday.

"To me, it's just so special to have them aware, because I've won a lot of golf tournaments in my career, but they don't remember any of them". I'm delighted to be where I am and looking forward to the afternoon and tomorrow. It's a major championship.

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

No matter how it goes down on Sunday, it's going to feel important. Either narrative is endlessly compelling, and Sundays at major championships are always the best regardless. He'd won the Barclays Classic and three more times after his triumph at Augusta, riding a sweet swing and long putter to the forefront of golf's youth revolution.

The 42-year-old, who only returned to competitive action in November after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April last year, also holed from six feet on the eighth for his fifth birdie of the round, before a par on the ninth took him to the turn in 31.
