Storm-hit PGA resumes with Tiger chasing leader Woodland

Storm-hit PGA resumes with Tiger chasing leader Woodland

Woods has made 15 of them this week, one for every major championship he hopes to have late on Sunday at Bellerive. Tiger Woods had completed seven holes in three under par, with playing partner Rory McIlroy carding seven pars.

Woodland added a 66 to his opening 64 to complete 36 holes at 130, the lowest total in the championship's 100 years and bettering the mark of 131, which had been shot nine times.

The 2018 Ryder Cup takes place at Le Golf National in France with Europe aiming to win back the trophy after being thrashing in Hazeltine two years ago. "So I'm not saying that my score would be any better, I'm just saying what you would like to see in a major championship".

With a front pin on the seventh hole, he went some 25 feet beyond the flag and holed the putt, and then got up-and-down from a bunker on par-5 eighth.

LOOK UP: Perseid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend
If bad weather does spoil your view, you can also watch the Perseid meteor shower live here on Sunday (Aug. 12) starting at 5 p.m. You'll be able to see a few meteors in the sky over the next few nights, but the Perseids meteor shower peaks Sunday night.

It happened on the par-3 16th hole. "There were good signs that carried over to today, and hopefully tomorrow it gets better and better". He was helped by a marvellous stroke at the 14th where he pitched in from the back of the green, but the abiding moment was he flew the putting surface once more with a wedge in his hands. The previous was the 1980 U.S. Open won by Jack Nicklaus, who shot 63 in the first round at Baltusrol along with Tom Weiskopf. "I know he's a little frustrated on the back nine with not making a some of those putts, but made a few on the front nine, and it all evens out".

Koepka, who started on the back nine, birdied the par-5 eighth and had a 20-foot birdie putt at the ninth for 62 but rolled it three feet past and made the comeback to shoot 63.

But after pitching to 10 feet he holed the putt for par, celebrating with a fist pump before the ball had actually dropped into the cup.

But a couple of loose swings led to consecutive bogeys and suddenly it was game on, a four-under-par 66 not exactly what Koepka had in mind a couple of hours earlier at Bellerive.

Steve Bruce tells Tottenham to find more if they want Jack Grealish
However, Villa have since been rescured by the investment from business investors Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens. Aston Villa have told Tottenham Hotspur to "double" their offer for midfield star Jack Grealish .

Only a three-putt bogey at the fifth hole halted his progress, though he put the setback quickly behind him to birdie the next three holes. Of course, we've all been there, save the part about playing in a major and actually being good enough to warrant being ticked off at missing a fairway. He fought for a 1-over 71 in the first round but had gotten it to 1 under before his struggles at the 17th.

Rory McIlroy could not put the same pressure on the leaders however as a single birdie on the fourteenth only enough to leave him on two-under for the tournament with his second round almost completed.

At times he looked and seemed and played younger than his age on a day when he had to play 29 holes in unbearable heat.

- Frustrated by the conditions, Jordan Spieth gives his approval for the tournament's schedule change from 2019.
