Koepka takes 2-shot lead at PGA and goes for another major

Poulter is playing his fifth straight week

"The energy in that place was unbelievable".

"There were a lot of roars happening and it was good fun to be out there".

Australia's Adam Scott has a limited shelf life to realistically win another Major and knows he needs to seize the moment in the final round at the PGA Championship.

That putt slid just past. Woods slammed the head of his driver to the ground, then swung it violently in frustration.

Scott clawed into a tie for the lead with five holes left but could not match Koepka's consecutive birdies at the 15th and 16th holes at Bellerive Country Club.

On No 18, Woods offered one final flourish. Woodland missed the ninth green to the right and popped up his chip out of the deep rough, leaving himself a 12-footer that he left short.

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.

Teeth Belonging to Prehistoric Mega-Shark Uncovered in Australia
The species, still alive today, likely fed on the remains of the megatooth shark after it died. After prying the almost 3-inch tooth loose from a boulder, he came back and found more teeth.


Woods will be hunting his first major title since the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines.

For Woods, this will be a tournament of what ifs, which is always the case when you lose, but in this case, they won't go away quickly.

On his ability to come through on the big stage, Koepka told CBS Sports after accepting the trophy, "I think it's my focus".

"I feel like, if I do what I'm supposed to do", Koepka said, "I should win the golf tournament".

He parred every hole on the back nine and his 66 matched his lowest round in a major this year, but he was a little disappointed, not least with a three-putt at the par-five 17th.

Did he worry that a day like this might not ever come again?

"I don't know what to say to that".

It also seems like a good decision when you take into account that Manchester City work with a director of football. He adds: "When people trust you, then you're good in your own head, and it's going to be easier".


The last one was a laser of a 4-iron from 248 yards that settled 6 feet away, sending him to a dream finish of a year that began with the 28-year-old Floridian wondering if a wrist injury that kept him out four months would ever allow him to compete again.

Woods birdies the 15th, he's now back to one behind the front pair. And yet, he scrambled. This was not a man agonizing-not publicly, at least-over a birdie putt left balanced on the rim of the 11th hole, a ball that nearly certainly would have fallen in by now if they'd left it there. He finished with six birdies and two bogeys in the final round. "When Tiger started making his little run, and Scotty made his run, it got loud".

Woods missed a 20-foot birdie putt at 16 for a share of the lead and sent his tee shot at the par-5 17th plugged into a hazard on the way to a par.

When people mocked Erin Hills as an unworthy U.S. Open test, Koepka answered them two months ago by acing what the USGA conceded was an unfair test at Shinnecock Hills, and he became the sport's first back-to-back national champ since Curtis Strange three decades earlier.

But he was there on Sunday (Monday NZT), getting stronger as the day went on, and making it very hard for Jim Furyk not to pick him for the Ryder Cup team in a few weeks.

There are some changes in the rankings - Brooks Koepka moving to No. 1 with the win and some shuffling between spots five and seven - but Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and Webb Simpson are all now officially on the team.

His ranking has jumped from 656 to start the year to 26 heading out of Bellerive.

Family of man who stole, crashed plane in 'complete shock'
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said this morning that President Donald Trump is " monitoring the situation ". Video footage on social media showed a large plane flying above the Seattle area with a F-15 fighter jet following it.


Woods has never been someone who was satisfied with second. He's put on one hell of a show these past two days, and looked as close to his old self as we've seen in a long time. "And I made sure I did on 17".
