Brooks Koepka Leads, Tiger Woods in Contention at PGA Championship

Masters concession prices in 2016. More

Welcome to the first breakfast version of Lunch Break. "I didn't do that, I rapped it past the hole and missed the putt". Major championship golf is amusing.

Koepka began two strokes back but quickly moved ahead by following a tap-in gain at the first with another birdie at the next, as Woodland bogeyed the second after finding water. His third shot out of the bunker was a beauty - it hit the green and rolled back toward the hole for a very makable par putt.

This is his seventh PGA. It'll mark the first time he's been in contention at a major tournament on USA soil since the 2015 Masters-and he's in better position at Bellerive than he was then at Augusta.

Koepka and Scott tee off at 2:55 PM in Bellerive.

Perhaps it was easy for Woodland not to be overly impressed. He knows what he'll need to do to regain the lead.

"The whole experience of playing with Jordan, I said to him down maybe the first hole or second hole it's like, you know, mate, this is a real privilege for me to be playing with you, because 18 months ago I was on a mini-tour and I worked really hard to where I got to now and it's a privilege to play with him", Wallace explained. "Tomorrow is going to be a long day for a lot of us". That's just the nature of the way it's playing right now.

Will he make things interesting in the final round at Bellerive? "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".

Scott's countryman Jason Day struggled to hit top gear during a 67 which left the 2015 US PGA Champion at 8-under the card - but still in the hunt for a second major victory.

As word spread that Woods was on the charge, those who weren't already following the former world number one were soon scrambling to join crowds that were 12-deep and lined almost every hole from tee to green. He bounced back immediately moments later at the par-3 sixth, hitting a brilliant cut shot to inside of 10 feet to set up his third birdie of the day. They also had a few technical difficulties throughout (including a ghost in the shot tracer that's plagued both online and broadcast coverage), and they zeroed in on group that were already available online as featured groups, which is a problem for more than just the PGA Championship but it's even more frustrating on this stage.

Ranks 47th in FedEx Cup standings and the two-time FedEx Cup champion has not qualified for the playoffs since 2013.

The 38-year-old was also hot with the putter, rolling in six birdies to keep Koepka within striking distance.

LOUIS Tony Finau tried not to look at the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship as a Ryder Cup audition as he played alongside USA captain Jim Furyk.

Ben Kern, the only club professional to make the cut, shot a 67 Saturday to move to 3-under for the tournament. Woods capitalized on that for his first birdie, moving to 9-under par and three shots behind leader Brooks Koepka, who just teed off at No. 1.

Vermeer's 6-over was fifth best among club pros. ". It was the craziest round I think he's ever seen".
