I'm delighted to be where I am and looking forward to the afternoon and tomorrow.

Tony Finau's run of top-10 finishes in major tournaments likely will end this weekend, but only after the Salt Lake City native has staged another spectacular performance.

Of the 14 w/in 5 shots, 8 are major champs w/ @TigerWoods giving himself chance!

Ninth-ranked Fowler, this year's Masters runner-up seeking his first major title despite eight top-five major finishes, completed a morning 67 to lift himself into the hunt.

Ten players were within four shots of the lead, no name bigger - no buzz bigger - than Woods. This time, Woodland's shot landed on grass, on the upslope in front of the green, 44 feet from the pin.

Woods has mixed five birdies with a bogey to race to eight under and the four-time PGA Champion shares fifth alongside 2017 victor Justin Thomas, Shane Lowry and Pat Perez.

"There's a lot of star power and it should be". "The golf course is gettable".

"I just wish I could have got myself a couple more shots closer to the lead but there aren't a lot of guys up there in front of me".

Woods, searching for a first major win since the 2008 US Open, moved into contention after a blistering front nine which contained five birdies and one bogey.

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

In nearly 40 years as a sportswriter, I can't recall any organization doing as through a job supplying information as the PGA does for the fourth major. "I was just trying to hit it 185 yards and obviously hit it 180 yards, but I think the wind switched on us a little bit". Watching Finau make all those birdies, Furyk "didn't say anything, but he was just shaking his head", Finau said.

French flooding: German missing after hundreds evacuated from campsites
The Gard government said four German children were taken to hospital on Thursday suffering from hypothermia in Bagnols-sur-Cèze. The mayor of Bagnols, Jean-Yves Chapelet, told BFM TV many Dutch tourists were among the 350 campers evacuated in the town.

A late storm on Friday in St. Louis stalled Tiger Woods' charge up the leaderboard at the PGA Championship, and he trailed leader Gary Woodland by six strokes after finishing up his second round on Saturday morning. Hearing the crowd, and Tiger's performing great.

"No matter who wins, if that person has met Jarrod Lyle, they will have felt something with him passing this week", Scott said.

Brooks Koepka opened up a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the PGA Championship, as Tiger Woods stayed in contention at Bellerive.

With the big-hitting Koepka in career-best form and eyeing his second major of the year, Day said he will need to fire on all cylinders to have a chance.

"It's been fantastic", Scott said. But it came to a dead halt on the back nine as he settled for nothing but pars.

Hoisting the Wanamaker Trophy could be a major tribute as well.

For any other golfer, it would have been respectable, impressive, good for an aside. "And I blew it by 4 feet and then pulled the next one".

"You can't hide when you're on the top of the leaderboard", he said.

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.

"It's been such a hard thing for us to get our heads around because we've been removed from Jarrod and his family back in Australia, and everything happening so suddenly last week, and then this week, you know, I don't even know if we've really had time to reflect on it and let it sink in".
