PGA Championship at a glance

Going low Brooks Koepka equalled lowest US PGA round

"I'm happy with the way I scored considering how I played", said Rose. They had to finish their second rounds on Saturday morning because of rain that deluged Bellerive late Friday afternoon. When play resumed, Woods had 28 1/2 holes to complete. Seemed like everybody was between 2- and 4- or 5-under par.

With the afternoon wave just underway, Koepka's 63 left the twice defending U.S. Open champion alone in third at eight-under, just two back of second round clubhouse leader Gary Woodland.

"The golf course is gettable", Woodland said.

He holed only one lengthy putt, the other four birdies coming from tap-in range, or close to it.

Finau was among five players who accompanied Furyk to France this summer for a scouting trip at Le Golf Nacional, the host course of the September 28-30 Ryder Cup matches.

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.

For months, Woods has been as good as anyone through 63 holes.

He was 3 under and in the fairway at the eighth when the sirens stopped play. Kevin Kisner will tee off with him as he is -9 while Brooks Kopeka and Fowler are -8.

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).

United States captain Jim Furyk, who made the cut on the number at level-par, will add four captain's picks next month to complete his lineup - the only remaining Ryder Cup path for those who missed the cut.

Maybe he succumbs to the pressure.

If Woods is to win his first tournament anywhere for five years and his first major for double that length, he is going to have to figure out how to improve his scoring on the back nine.

"It's a good position to be in and there's a lot of holes to be played", Schwartzel said. "I didn't know if it was going to cover enough, but it looked like it just covered the bunker and rolled up there to about 5 feet".

Scott's countryman Jason Day was flirting with a leaderboard charge on moving day, snaring two birdies on his front nine, before a dropped shot at the 10th and and a birdie at the 13th have left him at seven under. "It didn't really feel like there was a difference at all. Today was really no different".

Spieth had just made birdie at the par-3 16th when he faced his tee shot into the creek running along the next hole. In second place after 36 holes, he will automatically make the team with a first or second placing on Sunday, and perhaps even with a third. "And I blew it by 4 feet and then pulled the next one".

- Frustrated by the conditions, Jordan Spieth gives his approval for the tournament's schedule change from 2019.

Schwartzel had 30 feet for birdie at his final hole, which would have given him a 62 and matched Branden Grace's low round in a major. "Twenty-nine holes, it's not necessarily the physical, it's this mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat. It was a long day". You get away with more.

If they can work out the kinks of his back-nine struggles, the final round of the PGA could be one for the ages.
