Storm-hit PGA resumes with Tiger chasing leader Woodland

  • Ian Poulter fired a three-under 67 despite only one practice day

There certainly won't be a dry eye in the house if he comes up with his own tribute and claims his second major, following his victory in the Masters in 2012.

Gary Woodland shot 66 before rain halted play in the afternoon, and finished at 10-under 130. Bryson DeChambeau three-putted his final hole, missing a 4-foot par putt on No. 9, to miss the cut by one shot. Massive crowds were also out early at Bellerive Country Club and most were tracking the marquee group of Woods, Rory McIlroy and defending champion Justin Thomas.

Playing partner McIlroy was a shot further back after returning a 67 when the delayed second round was completed on Saturday morning, but the four-time major victor got off to a poor start in round three.

Playing an aggressive punchout, Spieth's golf ball caromed hard off a tree and went out of bounds. "Obviously things haven't been going well for me this year (but) the last few weeks have been good".

Bethenny Frankel's On-Again, Off-Again Boyfriend Found Dead in Trump Tower Apartment
Shields and Frankel began dating in 2016, just after Frankel's divorce from second husband Jason Hoppy was finalized. Sonja added that the event especially made her sad because the tragedies seem "to be never-ending for [Bethenny]".

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. "There's no excuse. It's one or two extra putts from 10 feet for par or birdie", Scott said. "This is the first real Tiger effect, I guess you could say".

Woodland has a one-shot lead over Kevin Kisner, with Koepka another shot back followed by Schwartzel, Dustin Johnson and Thomas Pieters in a tie for fourth at 7 under par.

However, he could not sustain his momentum on the back nine.

A 12-under 198 total still left Koepka within sight of his third major title in 14 months, but the two-times U.S. Open champion's grip on the Wanamaker Trophy had loosened.

Paul Pogba explains penalty row with Alexis Sanchez
Mark Ogden, senior writer at ESPN , says that Manchester United and their fans should "brace themselves for a bumpy ride". Jose Mourinho selected a youthful squad to take to America after a number of players were missing due to the World Cup .

Resuming his weather-delayed round on the 12th hole Saturday, the Lehi resident made two more birdies and two bogeys to finish. He eyeballed every shot, twirled every club (I mean every club). and did not make a single putt.

Satoshi Kodaira delivered the first eagle of the PGA Championship when he put his drive at the short, par-4 11th within 5 feet of the hole and rolled in his putt. "Who knows? If I had the answer to it, I would give it to you, but I really don't know".

Successive birdies for Woodland on the second and third, however, saw him retake the lead. He was at seven-under, three shots behind Woodland with eight holes to play.

Jordan Spieth's chances of claiming the win he needs to complete the career grand slam looked to have disappeared as he suffered a nightmare triple-bogey seven on the 12th. It was a little early in the tournament to do any scoreboard watching, not that Woodland needed to because the hottest player on the course was playing with him and Sergio Garcia. Tiger Woods sits tied for 24th at minus-3.
