What Tiger Woods said after third-round 66 at PGA Championship

Not the First Bitcoin Ransom Requested

Utah's Tony Finau and Zach Johnson play much better in PGA second round

Tony Finau completed his adventurous second round of the PGA Championship on Saturday morning, finishing with 10 birdies in a 4-under-par 66 that was just good enough for him to make the 36-hole cut at even par.

Tiger Woods birdied three of his first five holes played.

After the birdie on No. 8 that got him to within two shots of the lead, Woods carded 11 consecutive pars to finish his round of 66.

Woodland has a one-shot lead over Kevin Kisner, with Koepka another shot back followed by Schwartzel, Dustin Johnson and Thomas Pieters in a tie for fourth at 7 under par.

The two were paired together in the third round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive on Saturday, and apparently, fans couldn't decided who was who, confusing Woodland for Koepka, even as they played alongside each other.

"I felt I was headed in the right direction", Woods said.
"I get it all the time, so I'm used to it by now".

Woods failed to convert on both, despite having given himself excellent chances.

What they watched was the hole Woods regretted, where he was a 19-foot putt away from eagle.

"I left pretty much every single putt short on the back nine", he said.

"I made sure on 17 I did. And I blew it by about four feet and then pulled the next one".

Woods didn't discount the fact that the long day might have had an impact. He started his round at 4-under for the tournament.

Woods, ranked 51st, won his most recent major title at the 2008 US Open and has not won any event since the 2013 WGC Bridgestone Invitational but showed solid form last month by leading on the back nine Sunday at last month's British Open. "It was a long day". Woods resumed on the eighth hole, where he had a wedge shot from 70 yards that he knocked close for a birdie.

He holed only one lengthy putt, the other four birdies coming from tap-in range, or close to it.

Kisner shot 29 on the back nine - his first nine - and was threatening to shoot a tournament-record 62 but bogeyed the final hole and settled for 64.

The third round was scheduled to begin early Saturday afternoon. "It's fun", Cink said. "Being in Tiger's group is always exciting".

"That self-belief has to come out and I feel like the last six to eight weeks has been a real positive for me". "It takes a lot out of you". He was helped by a marvellous stroke at the 14th where he pitched in from the back of the green, but the abiding moment was he flew the putting surface once more with a wedge in his hands.

But Woods could turn it only so far.

And then Charl Schwartzel made it 16 players with his eight-birdie round of 63.

Tiger Woods was the center of attention during Round 3 of the PGA Championship.

He's played 66 rounds of the championship and has played 30 of those rounds under par, a dozen at level par and two dozen over par.

There, he needed some help from the leaders to make it interesting, and the same might be required here. If you do that well, and, obviously, in there you're going to make those putts.
