Koepka takes 2-shot lead into final round of PGA Championship

Tiger Woods was joined by Rory Mc Ilroy and Justin Thomas for the first round

Charl Schwartzel, Thomas Pieters and Dustin Johnson are all on -7 with Lowry.

Woodland added a 66 to his opening 64 to complete 36 holes at 130, the lowest total in the championship's 100 years and bettering the mark of 131, which had been shot nine times. "This is the first real Tiger effect, I guess you could say".

"It kind of reminded me of being in the vortex a lot years ago", said Stewart Cink, who was grouped with Woods on Saturday. "But at the same time, it can show its teeth if you're not driving it well".

Woods, a 14-time major victor in the eighth month of his comeback from spinal fusion surgery, opened Saturday with a birdie at the par-5 eighth.

"Everyone's going to have to shoot low rounds", said Woods. It was his fourth round of 66 or better this year, including his third round at the British Open.

At times he looked and seemed and played younger than his age on a day when he had to play 29 holes in unbearable heat. "There's not a single putt out here that you're afraid of".

The course is so soft - not so much from Tuesday's rain, but the extreme heat that requires more water on the turf - that every flag is accessible provided players find the ample fairways. It was 141 at Atlanta Athletic Club in 2001.

Unfortunately, unless you were at Bellerive, you didn't see any of that thanks to the Turner coverage windows for the first two rounds of the event.

"I was just trying to make the thing, and I really thought I made it", Koepka said.

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

Adam Scott and Tiger Woods are climbing up the leaderboard as the cream rises to the top midway through the third round at the US PGA Championship in Missouri.

Mickelson had a 71 and missed the cut by four shots. US captain Jim Furyk will then make two captains picks on September 4 and another two on September 10. It might not bode as well for the others.

Kisner made bogey on No. 9 and finished the day with a 64, one stroke behind Woodland and one ahead of Brooks Koepka, victor of the past two U.S. Opens.

DeChambeau was ninth on points, one spot ahead of Mickelson, with Kuchar 12th and Stanley 14th.

The top eight players in the standings following the conclusion of the PGA on Sunday automatically qualify for the Ryder Cup team.

Playing with - and likely auditioning for Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk - Finau began with five straight birdies before posting a triple bogey on No. 6.

"It was fine. I'm 3 under par, so I felt I was headed in the right direction, " Woods said. McIlroy returned to complete a bogey-free effort, carding all three birdies on his scorecard on Saturday for a 67 to leave himself plenty of work to do over the weekend at seven shots off the pace.

Finau decribed the round as "an emotional roller coaster".
