Tiger Woods electrifies PGA Championship crowd with back-to-back birdies

Ahead of PGA Championship in St. Louis hackers grab hold of computer servers per report. More

When play was stopped for impending rain at 3:35 p.m. Friday at the PGA Championship, Tony Finau had the wildest scorecard of anyone on the golf course. Another at 64. Six rounds of 65.

Just ahead of them, two-time US Open champion Brooks Koepka narrowly missed a 20-foot birdie putt at No 9. "I didn't know that was such a rivalry".

Fair play to the plucky Kevin Kisner from SC, therefore, who managed to keep pace with this trio of monstrous sluggers despite lieing a rather modest 142nd in driving distance this season. He's absolutely striping it and rolling the rock, so if he's going to keep that up we're going to have a pretty good battle if I can too. Considering he went from just making the halfway cut at the Open to finishing joint second, he won't be giving up on his chances just yet, either.

"I was just trying to make the thing, and I really thought I made it", Koepka said.

Koepka was at eight-under 132, two shots behind.

The Euros? They're not out of it, with forgotten man Thomas Pieters from Belgium leading the way on seven under after following his opening 67 with a 66. Woodland is among the most powerful players in golf. The iron game, the distance control this week has been phenomenal.

The course is so soft - not so much from Tuesday's rain, but the extreme heat that requires more water on the turf - that every flag is accessible provided players find the ample fairways. I was putting nice. "But being receptive, that's my only hope".

When play was suspended by storms on Friday afternoon, Spieth sat seven shots behind red-hot leader Gary Woodland (64-66).

Spieth has endured a horrendous year with the putter (he entered the PGA ranked 165th in strokes gained: putting), and as his focus turned to addressing that part of his game, his long game has suffered. It's the nature of the course that makes him feel he has a farther climb than the seven shots that separate him from Woodland.

"A little frustrated at this place in general", he told reporters after his round.

"So you can just fire in and you get away with more, like you don't have to be as precise", Spieth continued. You don't have to be as precise. "So personally I would prefer more hard and firmer faster conditions on the greens".

"I was able to grind out a score today", Woods said. Along with his three birdies, he saved par from a bunker on the par-3 sixth hole from about 18 feet.

Speaking of which, it looked like it was going to be a rare weekend off for Tommy Fleetwood until he birdied his last two holes to be on the right side of the mark on one under. He was only 2 under.

After a par at the fourth, Woods hit a booming 318-yard drive into the fairway at No. 5, then stuck an approach shot to inside of 10 feet.

Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters victor, didn't threaten the lead with his 62 bid but sank a seven-foot birdie putt at the par-3 16th to reach 7-under.

At The Open three weeks ago, Woods also opened with a score of even-par 70. In conditions like Bellerive, no lead was safe. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there". Said Koepka: 'When you think where I was in April and having to miss the Masters with a wrist injury, to win two majors in the same season would be incredible'.
