Putts won’t drop, but Woods moves up the board at PGA anyway

Tiger Woods starts Round 2 of the PGA Championship trailing by 10 strokes. More Tiger Woods starts Round 2 of the PGA Championship trailing by 10 strokes. More

Woods, ranked 51st, won his most recent major title at the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational but showed solid form last month by leading Sunday on the back nine at the British Open. "But I've got a shot going into tomorrow".

"It's been such a hard thing for us to get our heads around because we've been removed from Jarrod and his family back in Australia, and everything happening so suddenly last week, and then this week, you know, I don't even know if we've really had time to reflect on it and let it sink in". "I know that that's in the bag".

Showing up to the golf course with a tail might not be for everyone, but Brown was glad to show his support for the competitor everybody's talking about at Bellerive.

"Some things are meant to be", he said. "It's soft, it's gettable, and you can't just go out there and make a bunch of pars".

So coming into the 100th PGA Championship, he wasn't exactly burning up the prognosticators picks to win and, in the process, complete the career Grand Slam.

Finau, who was doing an audition of sorts for a spot on the Ryder Cup team, being paired with Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk, impressed the captain by starting out with seven birdies on the first eight holes, including the first five.

Hitting the ball well and in the hunt. His resulting attempt to punch back out in to play hit another tree and ricocheted out of bounds. He wound up with triple bogey, and scrambled to get back in the mix.

"I hit two trees to get out of bounds, and my tee shot hit the cart path to get over there, and it just was a flawless storm", Spieth said. Six shots back, with plenty of possibilities.

City United: Evolution of a Rivalry
Tottenham became the first side in Premier League history not to make a summer signing since the transfer window began in 2003. Last season he made 30 appearances for Freiburg and scored one goal.

"The greens were getting fuzzy, they're getting slow, and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough, " Woods said. "If I can get off to a hot start there and playing the rest of the golf course really well, I know I have a chance to win this golf tournament".

Spieth wasn't the only player to have a triple bogey nightmare.

One shot back of Scott sharing third are superstars Jon Rahm (66) and Rickie Fowler (69), as well as overnight leader Gary Woodland (71). Woodland's approach spun back into a bunker, and he failed to get it up and out of the sand.

Despite the record showing, he leads Kevin Kisner (9-under-par) by just one stroke.

Koepka began two strokes back but quickly moved ahead by following a tap-in gain at the first with another birdie at the next, as Woodland bogeyed the second after finding water.

"It was nice", Woodland told reporters. Yes, it is a course (where) you can make birdies, but I just think this afternoon there's been a couple of big numbers as well. "It was nice to have that in my back pocket, been there in that same situation, and came out on top". Three-time European Tour victor Matt Wallace had a moment to remember when he claimed a hole-in-one at the Par-3 16th.

Playing with Jordan Spieth was already giving him a thrill such has been the rapid rise of the 28-year-old.

"The only outcome I'm seeing any differently would have been I just shouldn't have hit a 5-iron".
