Early stumbles blunt charges by Tiger, Fowler at PGA Championship

Tiger Woods walks off to change his shirt at the 12th hole at a hot and humid Bellerive Country Club in St Louis

That was six shots off the clubhouse lead held by compatriot Gary Woodland, whose halfway total of 130 was a tournament record.

Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel both tied the PGA record with a round of 63.

Kevin Kisner birdied 10, 11, 13 and 15 to move to 7 under, pushing Woodland to second temporarily.

There hadn't been two 63s on the same day in a major championship since the 1980 U.S. Open, when Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf shot rounds of 7 under at Baltusrol.

Defending champion Justin Thomas made one birdie and no doubt felt like he was losing ground.

That will mean a long day for guys like Woods, who could play more than 28 holes Saturday.

"I feel like we're in a good spot", Fowler said. "I don't think I've ever played in front of that many people. But at the same time, it can show its teeth if you're not driving it well".

The 14-time major victor was three under for his round to that point and carried on where he left off on Saturday morning, pitching to five feet and holing the birdie putt.

- Frustrated by the conditions, Jordan Spieth gives his approval for the tournament's schedule change from 2019. It was his fourth round of 66 or better this year, including his third round at the British Open. "I played as nice as yesterday and am slowly getting into this rhythm that I've been working on with Lee, to be patient and not be too downbeat about shots that don't come off".

Mohammad Radmanish said the attack was carried out jointly by the militants from Maidan Wardak, Paktia, and Zabul provinces. The Taliban frequently exaggerate their battlefield gains and downplay losses incurred during fighting.

Asked what Furyk's reaction to all the birdies was, Finau said, "He didn't say anything, but he was just shaking his head".

"They key is to get the ball in the fairway and attack from there", Woodland said. "There's not a single putt out here that you're afraid of". It was 141 at Atlanta Athletic Club in 2001.

Add it all up, and his final-round scoring average (70.45) is almost two strokes higher than his scores in the third round (68.64).

No player in United States history has featured in more Ryder Cups than Mickelson, who has played in a total of 45 matches.

Tiger Woods didn't just play his way into contention to win the 100th US PGA Championship with another stand-out performance in his stunning comeback this summer.

It would be an upset if Mickelson, who essentially serves as an assistant captain, is not one of Furyk's four picks. Furyk then has four captain's picks to make on September 4. It might not bode as well for the others.

Mickelson had qualified automatically for the USA team stretching back to his debut in 1995, making 11 consecutive appearances in the biennial event.

Spieth had just made birdie at the par-3 16th when he faced his tee shot into the creek running along the next hole.

Johnson's run began after a bogey at the second when he knocked a wedge to within 10 feet at the par-3 third. It was still an emotional roller coaster in the second round. "So the good news is 10 birdies in a major is pretty good".
