Tiger Woods lurking at PGA Championship

Gary Woodland and Kevin Kisner are in prime position halfway through the 100th PGA Championship

"I told myself exactly that on 11 tee", Woodland said of his triple in Phoenix. His 72-hole score of 264 set the PGA Championship scoring record and matched the major championship record set by Henrink Stenson at Royal Troon in the 2016 British Open.

There were two rounds of 63, one 64 and six 65s. Storms arrived forcing a two-hour suspension, and the PGA of America declared the rest of the day a wash when rain pounded the course.

It was Woods' first $1 million prize in over four years.

"It could have been a little bit closer but I've got a shot going into tomorrow", he said.

Adam Hadwin of Abbotsford, B.C., was a part of the late wave that had its round suspended by the weather.

At the 10th, Woods found the right rough and pitched to eight feet then made a tension-packed putt to rescue par, a right fist-pump showing his joy at avoiding a third consecutive bogey on the hole.

And it started early, 7 a.m. local time.

Woodland would rather be leading, but in some ways it might be less pressure coming from behind.

Justin Thomas also had a chance to join Woods as the only back-to-back PGA champions in stroke play, and he was tied for the lead briefly on the front nine when Koepka missed fairways and made two straight bogeys.

The Brazilian, regarded as one of the world's best-ever players, owns a house in Ibiza and is a regular visitor to the island. Ronaldo scored 62 times for Brazil , including both goals when they beat Germany in the 2002 World Cup final.

After a bogey at the fifth, Woods responded with an 11-foot birdie putt at the par-3 sixth, a seven-footer for birdie at the par-4 seventh and a six-foot birdie putt at the par-5 eighth, the crowds and buzz around him growing with every hole.

With roars for Woods unheard anywhere this side of Augusta National, Koepka kept his cool and ran off two birdies on the back nine at Bellerive right after Woods closed within one shot. This one missed, and only later did Koepka realize it was for 62. Thereafter it was all about the indefatigable will of perhaps the greatest player the game has ever seen and a peerless putting stroke that has defied the agonies and long passage of time.

"My caddie said something walking off", Koepka said.

"I do want to be on the team as a player. You're never going to win another golf tournament again".

Woods then birdied the first hole on Sunday, but could not generate any momentum thereafter, playing the next 15 holes in one over par with 14 pars and a solitary bogey.

"I feel like we're in a good spot", Fowler said.

Bellerive really had no defence.

After a hard few years with Woods dealing with multiple back problems and personal issues, Woods finally looks like he can return to the top of golf.
