Highlights from Tiger Woods' Rd. 4 at the 2018 PGA Championship

This look only looks good on Woods.

After a strong start, Woods began to struggle on the par-4 fifth hole, starting a stretch in which he seemed to need a Global Positioning System to find a fairway. On Sunday, it was clear that the gallery at Bellerive Country Club wanted to see Tiger Woods turn back time. He shot 4-under 66 to reach 8 under. Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel both tied the PGA record with a round of 63.

"That self-belief has to come out and I feel like the last six to eight weeks has been a real positive for me".

Joining Woods at eight-under were second-ranked defending champion Justin Thomas, fellow American Pat Perez, Ireland's Shane Lowry and British Open champion Francesco Molinari of Italy.

St. Louis knows how to do big sporting events.

Even with back-to-back bogeys on the back nine, Koepka had a 4-under 66 for a two-shot lead over Adam Scott, the 2013 Masters champion who has been struggling through his worst season in almost two decades.

He has not made a putt of longer than 17 feet over three days, and has only made five putts of more than 10 feet all week.

After wasting one chance to put it away, Koepka ran kept attacking flags and ran in birdie putts of 10 feet on number 15 and 7 feet on number 16 to end the drama.

"They've been unbelievable, not only supportive, but just so positive", Woods said Saturday. That led Rich Lerner of the Golf Channel to make a comment that is sure to bring a smile to the face of Jayhawks fans while drawing a sigh from Mizzou fans. He sent the ball four feet from the hole and converted the tap-in to remain at 10-under. The best thing might be to take that first FedEx Cup week off and work on my game and hopefully come back in a better place.

Woodland is second to Brooks Koepka (1.59) in the tournament in strokes gained off the tee (1.255).

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.

He put a lovely swing on it, ending with a pose that would make a ideal photo in a book on golf fundamentals on the page showing what a finish is supposed to look like.

He was playing with Kisner, who shot 29 on the back nine and was in the middle of the ninth fairway - his final hole - needing a birdie to become the first player to shoot 62 in the PGA Championship. Woods' driver has put him in some precarious spots throughout his final round at the PGA Championship, but Woods has managed to get up-and-down nearly every time.

Being unable to score on the back nine has been a constant for Woods all week. He went double bogey-bogey on 11 and 12 to fall out of the lead and finished tied for sixth.
