Tiger Woods roars back into contention at USPGA Championship

Shane Lowry is bloody killing it at the USPGA Championships

It's an annual expectation for the PGA Championship, which already struggles for an identity and for the interest the other three majors never have trouble generating.

Tiger Woods had three birdies through seven holes as he tried to get in range.

Finau completed his adventurous second round Saturday morning, finishing with 10 birdies in a 4-under-par 66 that was good enough to make the cut.

A four-under third round by the 14-time major-winner took him to nine-under and four behind leader Brooks Koepka, who had four holes remaining.

Australian Adam Scott is two behind him on -10, while a trio of Gary Woodland, Rickie Fowler and Jon Rahm sit just behind him on -9. In reality, I should have played the smart shot, just accepted par or bogey instead of trying to take the green.

"I really hit some great shots the next couple of holes, gave myself a lot of chances for birdie, and made a couple of them". After the slow start on Thursday saw him play the first two holes in 3 over par, he has played the remaining 52 holes in 11 under.

He had a chance to revive the hysteria with a crack at eagle at the 17th, only to three-putt for yet another par. "And I made sure I did on 17. I hit the shot how I wanted to and just came up short". Iron off the tee and this one is a pull dumped into a fairway bunker. He said there have been no physical issues since the week began with him taking ice baths to combat swelling.

Koepka, who would become just the fifth player to win his third major by 28, may have made it look easy on Saturday, but if history is any indication the game's most relaxed player will have his hands full.

Does exercise actually improve your mental health?
The study focused on previous diagnoses of depression, gender, and age along with the type of exercise effectuated. The investigators found that cycling, team-oriented sports, and aerobic exercise are beneficial for mental health.

"It seemed like that was the only way I was going to make birdie, hit it to tap-in distance or chip in", McIlroy said.

"It's not necessarily the physical, it's mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat, " he said.

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

The second round was to resume at 7 a.m. local time. The birdie at 8 moved him to within two shots of the lead at the time.

And then Charl Schwartzel made it 16 players with his eight-birdie round of 63. "It was like turning back the hands of the clock", said Cink, who's also at eight under for the tournament. "Being in Tiger's group is always exciting".

Tiger stormed into contention with back-to-back birdies to start his third round. He finished with 10 consecutive pars.

And the round was solid, perhaps something to build on. But he needed 18 putts on the back nine for a total of 30, and the difference between being closer to the lead. Just look at this video of Woods arriving at Bellerive for the final round. But there's no question what Woods will need to do. "This golf course is stacked right now and everyone is bunched", Woods said. They were like, 'Did you see that No. 1 player in the world was here?

At the British Open, he shot 34 over the front nine in the final round to briefly get into the lead. That's just the nature of the way it's playing right now. It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags. You get away with more.
