‘They’ve been unbelievable’ | St. Louis wows Tiger Woods, golfers in PGA Championship

Tiger Woods charged into contention for his first major title in 10 years while two-time US Open champion Brooks Koepka seized a three-stroke lead at the turn in Saturday's third round of the PGA Championship.

On Sunday at Bellerive Country Club, we finally got that vintage push to the finish from Tiger.

Sunday's final round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive was almost a complete throwback to the days of Tiger Woods' golf dominance.

Woods lipped out on a seven-foot birdie putt on the opening hole but sank a four-footer for birdie at the second to reach nine-under, three off the lead.

"It started with the first putt, just ran it by", Woods said after his round.

Brooks Koepka had his rivals on the ropes but could not deliver a knockout punch and had his lead whittled to two strokes over Adam Scott after the third round at the PGA Championship on Saturday.

As for Woods? He felt the love, and he gave it right back to St. Louis.

In so doing, Koepka became just the fifth man to achieve this notable double and, given the other four went by the surnames of Sarazen, Hogan, Nicklaus and Woods, that's the company he has now joined.

"I'm going to have to play aggressive", he said. "It looks like I'm going to come up a little short".

Woods hit a great tee shot at the par-3 16th to about 20 feet, but he was unable to convert the birdie putt.

"I feel like, if I do what I'm supposed to do", Koepka said, "I should win the golf tournament".

Woods, meanwhile, kept himself in the hunt for a first major victory in over 10 years as he turned in 32 with four birdies and one bogey, and he pulled within one of Koepka with further gains at 12 and 13 to set the pulses racing among the vast galleries following the 42-year-old.

In peak Tiger fashion, the crowd erupted after he drained a 19-foot birdie putt on his final hole to end the tournament at 14-under par.

It's not just the American players who are digging the atmosphere. "The greens were getting fuzzy, they're getting slow, and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough, and I made sure on 17 I did".

Having struggled for long stretches this year, Lowry was back to his very best and his putting was sublime.

The four-time PGA Championship victor made five birdies and one bogey through eight holes and finished with 10 consecutive pars.
