Two-time US Open champion Brooks Koepka teed off in quest of his third major victory in Sunday's final round of the 100th PGA Championship with Tiger Woods in the title hunt. He finished at 16 under par.

Eldrick Woods wasn't the only "Tiger" turning heads Saturday during the third round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive.

Still, it is the first time since the 2005 Masters that Woods has shot consecutive rounds of 66 or better in a major championship. He then bogeyed the final hole to slip out of a tie for second.

Woods was among 77 players who returned early on Saturday to complete the weather-delayed second round. Among the other four - Tiger Woods.

"They've been unbelievable, not only supportive, but just so positive", Woods said Saturday.

NASA postpones for 24 hours launch of historic spaceship to Sun
As soon as the red pressure alarm for the gaseous helium system went off, a launch controller ordered, "Hold, hold, hold". Eric Christian, a space scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, told UPI .

Topping it off, he sank the putt for a birdie (his fourth on the front nine) that put him at 11-under, two strokes off the lead as he makes the turn. He tapped in for par on the final hole to set the PGA Championship scoring record at 264.

Birdies were not only everywhere, but necessary to stay in contention, and Spieth knew it, particularly at 17 - a par 5 where eagle is in play and birdie is a must.

"I feel like I've been doing all the right stuff, and I just haven't been doing it on the golf course".

He never imagined what it would take for him just to get to the weekend. "Hopefully, we can come back soon".

Koepka joked about working out in a public gym this week with Johnson and not being recognized. He has been motivated by more serious moments, from being left off the "notable scores" section of TV coverage at tournaments and even last week, when he was not summoned for a TV interview to preview the PGA Championship. And with the FedEx Cup Playoffs approaching, Tiger has the golf world on notice.

Taliban launch attack on Afghan city, casualties
Meanwhile, the bodies of three Czech soldiers killed in a suicide bombing claimed by the Taliban in Afghanistan arrived in Prague. Police special forces have also been deployed to help block the Taleban advance on the city, an Afghan security official said.

After failing to hit a fairway in regulation on the front nine, the four-time PGA Championship victor needed only 10 putts in an extraordinary display of scrambling.

At the 17th, after ramming his eagle putt through the break, he missed the 4-footer coming back.

Fleetwood signed off with a 68 for tied 36th place.

Woods hit zero fairways on the front nine but was able to repeatedly pull off miraculous recovery shots, the same ones that made him so great in his glory days.

It left a sense of anti-climax, but Woods is still within reach of his 15th major, a situation few would have predicted at the start of a year which has seen the 42-year-old resurrect his career after debilitating injuries.
