Woods encouraged by runner-up finish

Jordan sizes up the break of his putt at the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive

This marked Woods's highest major finish since being runner-up in the same tournament, nine years ago.

Through it all, Koepka was calm, making shot after shot when it was needed the most.

Tiger Woods hits out of the rough on the 14th hole during the final round of the PGA Championship on Sunday at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis.

A run of pars halted Woods' momentum but there was no stopping double US Open champion Brooks Koepka, who went one better than Woods with a front nine of 30 thanks to birdies on the first, second, fifth, eighth and ninth.

Sunday's play will decide the victor of the fourth and final major of the golfing season with the PGA Championship itself moving to a May date for the 2019 season. The old mark of 265 (15 under par) was established by David Toms in 2001 at Atlanta Athletic Club's Highlands Course.

Koepka now has three wins in the past seven major championships - and he didn't play in this year's Masters because of a wrist injury.

"But you just get on with it. And I seem to do a good job of that in the majors".

A brilliant reception for Tiger as he heads back to the clubhouse.

Woods finally found his first fairway at the 10th, left a birdie putt on the lip at the 11th, then birdied the 12th and 13th holes with approaches inside 10 feet.

Former KU All-American Ryan Vermeer sizes up the birdie putt he made on No. 8 at Bellerive on Friday in the 100th PGA as John Daly waits his turn. Instead Koepka went to the 18th with his two-shot lead intact.

Woods completed a 66 in the delayed second round on Saturday to lie six shots off the halfway lead, with playing partner McIlroy a shot further back after returning a bogey-free 67.

Thomas has received his due plaudits for his accomplishments in the last two years - shooting 59 in Hawaii, 63 at Erin Hills, winning eight times, taking the FedExCup, and collecting a Player of the Year Award.

The crowd was enormous, louder than anything in golf this side of Augusta National or a Ryder Cup, and Woods looked closer than ever to capping his comeback from four back surgeries with another major.

Tiger with his final putt, and he birdies the1th to move level with Adam Scott.

For the second major in a row the reports of the Woods resurrection proved to be somewhat exaggerated. Brown, whose family traditionally attends the PGA event every two years, was decked out in a full-length tiger costume as he followed around his favorite golfer Saturday. I was hanging in there, grinding it out and trying to make as many birdies as possible. "I've made what I thought would take weeks, kind of a turnaround to be able to trust and hit some really quality shots and work my way up to a major championship in a span of hours". Playing together too, you think they could get it right, but I ... guess we're built pretty similar. "I was struggling with my golf swing".

"I told myself exactly that on 11 tee", Woodland said of his triple in Phoenix.

Scott was tied for the lead until Koepka's birdies. As a fan of golf, you should be excited. All week Bellerive had been giving up low scores, and Woods, starting four back, knew that a merely decent round wouldn't get him anywhere. "It was fun. It made it enjoyable".

"No matter who wins tomorrow, if that person has met Jarrod Lyle, then they will have felt something with him passing this week", he said. "I feel like, if I do what I'm supposed to, I should win the golf tournament", Koepka said.
