Topeka-native Gary Woodland in the hunt for PGA Championship

After birdieing five of his first eight holes and playing the front side in 31 strokes, Woods stalled on the back nine, failing to convert any birdie opportunities and squandering a lovely chance at the par-5 17th, where he three-putted for par.

Despite a late slip-up, Brooks Koepka is still on top of the clubhouse at -12, but Adam Scott is trailing just two strokes behind him after shooting 66 on Saturday.

Then he drilled his tee shot at the 10th right down the middle.

Tiger fans and Tiger fans, of the Missouri and Woods variety, will be rooting against Woodland, but Kansas fans have grown by the day and have made their presence felt.

With roars for Woods unheard anywhere this side of Augusta National, Koepka kept his cool and ran off two birdies on the back nine at Bellerive right after Woods closed within one shot.

The 14-time major champion, in the eighth month of his comeback from spinal fusion surgery after years of back injuries, shared third on eight-under-par after seven holes at Bellerive Country Club. Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel both tied the PGA record with a round of 63. If Woods can get back to finding the fairway, he could make a real move here. "I bogeyed the last, but sometimes when you have bad shots, you're going to make bogey". And I made sure on 17 I did. He's the first Utah resident to make the cut in all four majors in one year since Sandy's Mike Weir in 2008.

"It's going to be a long day", Fowler said.

Now Koepka has to hold off a wide circle of PGA contenders that's heavy on instant name recognition and, in Woods, that includes arguably the greatest golfer ever trying to write one of the game's greatest tales.

That's what impressed Furyk the most - not so much the five birdies, but Finau's response to the triple bogey.

The 42-year-old certainly did not lack for pep to start his third round, carding birdies on his opening two holes to send a jolt of electricity through the parkland layout.

Woods had made the ideal start by holing from 15 feet for birdie on the first and five feet for another on the second, before nearly chipping in on the fourth after finding trouble off the tee.

"You look at this leaderboard, there are names I've grown up watching, that everybody else loves to watch play", Koepka said. They were like, 'Did you see that No. 1 player in the world was here? Kern was just one of three players who made it through his round without a bogey, joining Daniel Berger (66) and Jon Rahm (66).

"The greens were getting fuzzy and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough".

"I can think of plenty of people along the way telling me I'll be nothing", he had said the other day, "working at McDonald's, doing things like that". It was the four-time PGA champion's lowest final round in a major.
