Tiger Woods hangs in there at the turn in the PGA Championship

A former world number one and the 2013 Masters victor, Scott muscled his way into second place on 10-under, while Spaniard Jon Rahm (66) and Americans Rickie Fowler (69) and Gary Woodland (71) were three behind.

Four-time major victor Rory McIlroy, whose morning 67 was highlighted by a 58-foot chip-in at 14, had three bogeys against two birdies over the first 10 holes in round three.

His 10-under-par 130 score matched the lowest halfway total in major championship history, and he enjoyed a one-shot halfway lead over Kevin Kisner, and a two-shot cushion over Koepka. He tapped in for par on the final hole to set the PGA Championship scoring record at 264.

He did just that over the first nine holes, making five birdies on the front nine on the way to a 31 that drew him within two of the lead.

"I'm a little bit exhausted".

Being unable to score on the back nine has been a constant for Woods all week.

"It started with the first putt, just ran it by", Woods said after his round.

After failing to find a fairway over his first nine holes - going 0-for-7 - Woods changed his shirt following another miss on No. 9, then hit an incredible shot around a tree from near a cart path to 10 feet to set up a birdie for a front-nine 32.

He had the Bellerive gallery in a frenzy late Saturday, as he moved up the leaderboard with a string of three birdies on 6, 7 and 8. That would go such a long way for everyone. "All in all, we'll play aggressive and just stick to what we've been doing". "It's actually pretty windy today and I'm staying in the shade as best as I can". "And I made sure I did on 17. And when a guy's doing that and hitting it straight, and as good a putter as he is, it's tough to beat".

Now he gets another shot, and it most likely will take another round like Saturday. He missed four months at the start of the year when a partially torn tendon in his left wrist, causing him to sit out the Masters.

However, his efforts were still not enough as Koepka became the first man since Woods in 2000 to win the US Open and US PGA in the same season.

Ranks 47th in FedEx Cup standings and the two-time FedEx Cup champion has not qualified for the playoffs since 2013. He was at 3-over par for the second round through nine holes and 4 over for the tournament, putting him in a tie for 111th.

Koepka's lapse also brought many more players into the frame, with halfway leader Gary Woodland, Spain's Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler on nine under and Woods four off the pace alongside defending champion Justin Thomas, Ireland's Shane Lowry, Jason Day, Stewart Cink and Charl Schwartzel. Three golfers are at 9-under and Woods is among five golfers tied for sixth. ". It was the craziest round I think he's ever seen".
