Tiger Woods electrifies PGA Championship crowd with back-to-back birdies

Day, Scott in mix at PGA as play suspended

Woods sank a 14-foot birdie putt on the second hole, a five-footer for birdie at the par-3 third and a 10-foot birdie putt at the fifth.

Tiger Woods climbed back into contention by with birdies on three of his first seven holes to get to 3-under before play was suspended.

Woodland had a 4-under 66 and set the PGA Championship record with a 36-hole score of 130.

It is only the second time that two players have shot 63 on the same day at a major, after Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf at the 1980 US Open.

Dustin Johnson, the world's No 1 player, had a 66 and joined Schwartzel and Thomas Pieters (66) at 133.

The galleries at Bellerive Country Club for the PGA Championship were so thick that Gary Woodland's parents, Dan and Linda, weren't always able follow the flight of their son's golf ball as it tore off the tee boxes Friday morning. "I played the first holes OK and then the wheels fell off on the third hole".

"I felt I was headed in the right direction", said Woods, who was at 3 under.

Prugh matched the tour nine-hole record with a back-nine 27 in a 60 that left him 16 under.

Koepka birdied the eighth but missed a 19-foot birdie putt at nine for a 62, settling for a 63, matching the lowest round in tournament history.

Kisner, Koepka and South African Charl Schwartzel each flirted with the lowest all-time major round of 62 fired by South Africa's Branden Grace in the third round of last year's British Open at Royal Birkdale.

THE COLOR YELLOW: Fowler donned a bright yellow shirt, and several players pinned yellow ribbons to their hats, in honor of Aussie golfer Jarrod Lyle, who died Wednesday after a long bout with leukemia.

"The golf course is gettable", Woodland said.

EPL: Manchester United vs Leicester City
The club has however released a statement on the current injuries it has ahead of their match against Pep Guardiola's men. However, his high pressing and slick passing style requires a lot of work on the training ground.

"Greens are receptive, so my 4-iron stops as quick as his 7-iron", Kisner said.

"I'm happy with the way I scored considering how I played", said Rose, who did not play a practice round after recent back spasms. "I've been so in the zone, you don't know where you are".

The inclement weather means that Lowry will need to continue his second round on Saturday before playing his third round on what will be a hectic day at the final major championship of the year. "If they were firm, I don't think I would have a chance with the way the greens are situated and the places they're putting the flags". Schwartzel was a shot further back at seven under, as he shot even-par 70 on Thursday.

"My putter has been a little streaky here and there, but when it's on, it's on, " Prugh said. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".

Kisner, playing alongside Woodland, shot 64 Friday. Personally, I would prefer more hard and firmer, faster conditions on the greens.

Said Woodland: "I have a lot of friends out here, a lot of college teammates, a lot of people from college".
