Tiger didn't get what he needed at all.
Ultimately, his even 70 on Thursday in conjunction with a couple crucial missed puts on Sunday and some outstanding play from champion Brooks Koepka did him in. Round One leader Gary Woodland shot a four under par 66 to get to 10 under for the tournament and hold on to the lead. After taking relief from a cart path, Woods had to play a huge draw from matted down rough and somehow roped a shot 11 feet right of the pin. "I hit the shot how I wanted to and just came up short".
Koepka was responsible for that.
Four years and a day after winning the last of his four major titles in the 2014 US PGA at Valhalla, McIlroy gave himself a glimmer of hope with birdies on the 10th and 11th, only for the 29-year-old to double bogey the next after a wayward drive. It's not often that you see an athlete impact a sport the way Woods does. He tapped in for par on the final hole to set the PGA Championship scoring record at 264. It also tied the 36-hole record for all majors, matching Jordan Spieth at the 2015 Masters, Martin Kaymer at the 2014 U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2 and Brandt Snedeker (Royal Lytham & St. Annes in 2012) and Nick Faldo (Muirfield in 1992) at the British Open.
Charlottesville on edge on anniversary of deadly white-nationalist rallies
Other businesses have taken similar approaches and have said they will deny services to attendees of the Unite the Right rally. His apparent refusal to condemn neo-Nazis and violent white nationalist groups elicited strong bipartisan pushback .
Woodland and Kisner played in the same group, and they offered a great example that Bellerive is accommodating to just about any game.
While it's going to be a hard task for Woods to claim a 15th major win this week, it's not out of the question.
Tiger Woods had three birdies through seven holes as he tried to get in range. Whether it ends up being enough to catch Brooks Koepka and Adam Scott remains to be seen, but it shows that he still has that gear when he needs it.
The four-time PGA Championship victor made five birdies and one bogey through eight holes and finished with 10 consecutive pars.
Northern universities and colleges worry for Saudi students
Saudi neighbours Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have voiced solidarity with Riyadh , according to media reports. The moves, carried on the official Saudi Press Agency , caught diplomats in Riyadh off guard.
Being unable to score on the back nine has been a constant for Woods all week.
Fowler and Players Championship victor Webb Simpson were among the leaders as they fought to maintain positions on the Ryder Cup team on the final day of qualifying for eight berths on points.
Woods was relentless, pumping fists, raising the putter in his left hand, making birdies and charging toward a finish that caused pure pandemonium among one of the largest and noisiest crowds at a major.
He added his fourth birdie of the front nine at 9 after hitting a hook from left of the fairway to inside 11 feet. Crowds eager for an up close and personal look got their fill Saturday. Luckily his ball didn't find the water, but he ended up having to make a 10-footer for par on the par 5. He did well to advance it, but had to save par from a bunker.
Tiger, McIlroy in 'deep end' early in 100th PGA duel
I feel like I'm close and closing in. "Without a doubt, the next step in my career is to win in America and win a major", he said. He can lose the No. 1 ranking to Thomas if Thomas wins and Johnson finishes any worse than a three-way tie for second.
After changing his sweat-soaked shirt, Woods lost ground with a three-putt bogey on the fifth, but bounced back in style with birdies on the sixth, seventh and eighth.
