With a victory, Woods would match Jack Nicklaus and Walter Hagen with a record five PGA titles and qualify to play in next month's Ryder Cup in France.

His putting let him down on the par-four 15th as he three-putted from 12 metres.

Unfortunately, unless you were at Bellerive, you didn't see any of that thanks to the Turner coverage windows for the first two rounds of the event.

As a neutral observer/Iowa State grad, I'd like to point out that Mizzou won the last regular-season game between the schools in the state of Missouri.

Stats Canada labour survey show slight rise in Windsor jobless rate

"I feel like we're in a good spot", Fowler said.

Ten years removed from his 14th and most recent major title, he displayed shades of his pre-back surgery greatness with a near-flawless front nine on the rain-soaked layout.

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, needing only the PGA to complete a career Grand Slam, opened birdie-birdie but took a double bogey at the par-3 sixth then followed that with three consecutive birdies. To have Turner essentially go with old syndicated dramas all morning on Thursday and Friday while the year's final major kicks into gear remains a baffling decision.

Woods, whose earlier charge on the easier front nine raised the massive gallery's excitement to fever pitch, was among a logjam of six trailing by four shots. Seemed like everybody was between 2- and 4- or 5-under par. It's soft, it's plugging, we're able to hold 4-irons, 5-irons, whatever we want, at the flags. "It's soft, it's gettable and you can't just go out there and make a bunch of pars, you're going to have to make some birdies".

He excelled in Conte's system during their title-winning season of 2016-17, with protection from the defenders either side of him. So now we are not at the top. "The best capacity was to suffer, but then I think the second half maybe they were exhausted ".

"Hearing the crowd, and Tiger's performing great, it was like turning back the hands of the clock". "And I made sure I did on 17". He struck it pure from 240 yards on the 17th hole and started strutting down the fairway, watching the ball land 20 feet from the pin - one good putt away from an eagle that would have vaulted him into second place.

They streamed from the grandstands on Bellerive's 18th hole, filing out before Stewart Cink could hole his putt for par. "And I blew it by about four feet and then pulled the next one".

Once Turner finally came on the air at 2, things didn't get much better. "But I've got a shot going into tomorrow".

"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", Woods said. "Not only supportive, but just so positive". "They've been supportive of all my playing partners and myself these first three rounds".

Kavanaugh's SCOTUS confirmation hearing set, but Dems call it a 'mad rush'
Members of the committee will be able to make opening statements on September 4 and questioning will commence the next day. With support from Democrat Senator Joe Manchin and Republican Rand Paul, Kavanaugh's confirmation is all but certain.

Woodland played his fourth shot from the bunker behind the green, another poor attempt that rolled back into the bunker in front of the green and came to rest in a collection of footprints, most likely Woodland's own from his first trip to the hazard.
