Can Woods overcome Koepka and finally claim his 15th major victory?
Kisner birdied the seventh hole, his 16th of the day, to reach 7-under but found a bunker to par the par-5 eighth and chipped 25 feet beyond the cup and two-putted to bogey nine for a 64.
Dustin Johnson has five birdies in a six-hole stretch on his second nine, sending the world's top-ranked player to 4 under for his second round at the PGA Championship. Kevin Kisner also played early and was a shot back. The third round will be played in groups of three, teeing off from hole No. 1 and hole No. 10, about 30 minutes after the second round on Saturday. "I don't think I've ever played in front of that many people. I bogeyed the last, but sometimes when you have bad shots, you're going to make bogey".
The 42-year-old, who only returned to competitive action in November after undergoing spinal fusion surgery in April last year, also holed from six feet on the eighth for his fifth birdie of the round, before a par on the ninth took him to the turn in 31.
Woodland took a one-stroke lead into the day after shooting a 64 Thursday and chipped his way to a birdie on his second hole Friday, No. 11. I'm delighted to be where I am and looking forward to the afternoon and tomorrow. 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 PGA Championship moves to May next year, which isn't going to do the event any favors in terms of standing out; the only possible benefit is coming earlier in the golf calendar, between the Masters and the U.S. Open, but that's not going to make it feel like a bigger event. McIlroy returned to complete a bogey-free effort, carding all three birdies on his scorecard on Saturday for a 67 to leave himself plenty of work to do over the weekend at seven shots off the pace.
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. "Sometimes you are in your own mind and don't know where you are at". "We're going to have a pretty good battle if I can keep up with him".
Koepka is in third place at 8-under-par for the tournament.
But it is the first time in 14 tournaments this year that Woods has faced more than 18 holes in one day due to a weather delay.
"So in eight holes, he had seven birdies", Furyk said.
Successive birdies for Woodland on the second and third, however, saw him retake the lead. Especially on a course that's playing so far under par.
Spieth needs to win the PGA to complete a career Grand Slam.
"It was a little cut 3 wood back into the wind", Woodland said. Tiger Woods sits tied for 24th at minus-3.
