Top takeaways from 2018 PGA Championship

Top takeaways from 2018 PGA Championship

Koepka won his second major championship of the year, and Woods finished second for the ninth time in a major, but it was hard not to view the 14-time major champion in a positive light after stirring the masses to the verge of hysteria.

Brooks Koepka reacts after making a putt on the 18th green during the final round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club.

At 12 under, two-time US Open victor Brooks Koepka (66) will take a two-shot lead into the final round over Australian Adam Scott (65) - with the pair to comprise the final group.

In fact, Finau had more birdies than any player in the field for the week and even had two more than victor Brooks Koepka did at this week's major at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis.

As Woods electrified spectators by displaying the form that made him a 14-time major champion, American rival Koepka stayed calm and persevered under intense pressure.

Four back to start the final round, Thomas actually caught Koepka and tied him for the final-round lead as he played his first 11 holes in 4 under par, with five birdies.

Washington braces for white nationalist rally and counter-protest on Sunday
Today, we honor Heather, and all who stood up to hate, by recommitting ourselves to fighting all forms of racism and bigotry. Jason Kessler, one of the organizers of last year's rally is planning another "white civil rights" rally on Sunday.


A trio of players seeking a first major title shared third on 201, including Americans Rickie Fowler and Gary Woodland and Spaniard Jon Rahm.

As Woods made his move, the crowd certainly let the on-course leader know with an ever increasing volume of sound that greeted nearly every shot, reaching a crescendo when Woods birdied the final hole.

And Woods knew the putt was bad.

The PGA was the final event for players to secure one of the top eight spots in the Ryder Cup standings and an automatic berth to the team.

"I feel like I played well today", said Woods, who only returned to competitive golf in November after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April a year ago. The beginning of the back nine, I could hear all of the roars. "Bit of a struggle with my game today".

Amid relentless pandemonium, Koepka ran off three straight birdies to end the front nine and seize control. I was just hanging in there, grinding it out and trying to make as many birdies as possible. "Hopefully, we can come back here in May, get the course a little bit firmer and faster and even more challenging, and it would be a lot of fun to come back for sure". It was nearly as if someone had hit the rewind button on the last few years.

Tiger Woods was much more forgiving of his runnerup finish at the PGA Championship on Sunday than his close call at last month's British Open. On No. 14, just one shot out of the lead, he had 14 feet for par.

Woods missed a 20-foot birdie putt at 16 for a share of the lead and sent his tee shot at the par-5 17th plugged into a hazard on the way to a par.

"Three majors at 28, it's a cool feeling". He didn't register his first birdie until the 13th hole.

"I thought, it's probably Tiger's last time coming to St. Louis, so I might as well go all out", Brown said. His tee shot on the par-3 third hole almost hit the hole and bounced just a few feet away. Starting four back and then having a putt to take the lead on No. 9, I couldn't have really drawn it up any better.

"He's won three majors now, so he's definitely winning the right ones", Scott said.

Woods saves par on the 17th after a awful start to his penultimate hole.
