Koepka grabs PGA lead

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

The masses that have lined the gallery ropes 10 and 12 deep at times this week at Bellerive Country Club got their greatest wish early Saturday: Tiger Woods played well enough to book two more rounds on the weekend.

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.

"For me as a whole, the putting was kind of just the last piece of the puzzle", said the 34-year-old from Kansas, who admits he is in "enemy territory" in neighbouring Missouri, after a 66. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".

You could pardon Woods for looking like he needed a shave and a fresh shirt after nearly 12 hours of golf, with a 7 a.m. start to complete his rain-halted second round followed by the third. "So we'll see some putts go in".

Friday morning at the PGA Championship was a thrilling spectacle for golf fans, as Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzl each shot 63 and Kevin Kisner came up one shot shy of the mark.

"I told myself exactly that on 11 tee", Woodland said of his triple in Phoenix. In reality, I should have played the smart shot, just accepted par or bogey instead of trying to take the green.

News Corp not chasing mergers to compete with Nine-Fairfax powerhouse
Robert Thomson , CEO of News Corp, described FY18 as a year of "operational and transformational success" for the company. Telstra and News Corp merged Fox Sports , formerly 100 per cent News Corp owned, and joint-venture Foxtel in April.

"Then I thought I had a shot [from the woods] and just didn't quite pull it off, had a tough break [going out of bounds]. You're never going to win another golf tournament again". The birdie at 8 moved him to within two shots of the lead at the time.

"I wasn't working the right things", he said. "I knew I was playing well and had made a few birdies".

That's the same position he was in going into the final round of the British Open at Carnoustie, where he led briefly in the final before fading. He settled for his second consecutive 4-under-par 66 to finish at 202, 8 under par.

"I'm just focused on me".

"If you're hitting it down in the fairway with the way the greens are designed, you can get the ball to about 15 feet on nearly every hole".

Gary Woodland lost his way in his footprints in a bunker and made triple bogey on No. 10, falling six shots behind, and still managed a 71 to stay within three shots of the lead, along with Jon Rahm (66) and Rickie Fowler (69).

Jordan Ayew: Why I Don't Like Talking About Relegation
Sources close to Ayew are saying he will leave the Liberty Stadium by the close of the transfer window on 9 August. The Ghana global refused to return to training as he tried to push his move through.

"He's rolling the rock and really striping it", Kisner said.

Koepka blew out the U.S. Open field at Erin Hills a year ago with a record-tying finish of 16 under, this after his short-game coach got right up in his face on the range and told him, "You're no good".

"It seemed like that was the only way I was going to make birdie, hit it to tap-in distance or chip in", McIlroy said. More than the U.S. Open.

Koepka leads by two shots over Adam Scott, and at 28 years old he could very well win his third major in seven tries.

Matt Wallace fired a hole-in-one at the par-three 16th on his way to a two-under 68, with fellow Englishmen Eddie Pepperell and Ian Poulter also in the group seven off the pace.

McIlroy bogeyed the opening hole after flying his approach over the green and although he responded immediately with a birdie on the next, further dropped shots on the fourth and seventh saw him tumble down the leaderboard.
