Tiger Woods lurking at PGA Championship

Shane Lowry is bloody killing it at the USPGA Championships

Golf Channel host praises Gary Woodland, throws shade at Mizzou during PGA Championship | The Kansas City Star

Welcome to the first breakfast version of Lunch Break.

In nearly 40 years as a sportswriter, I can't recall any organization doing as through a job supplying information as the PGA does for the fourth major. Instead, he was the 15th player to shoot 63 in the PGA Championship.

Birdies were not only everywhere, but necessary to stay in contention, and Spieth knew it, particularly at 17 - a par 5 where eagle is in play and birdie is a must.

This is his seventh PGA.

Meanwhile, Koepka will take a two-shot lead over Australian Adam Scott into the final round on Monday after shooting a four-under 66 that left him at 12-under for the tournament.

But after changing his drenched shirt in a players' bathroom between the 11th green and 12th tee, Woods fought back to card a level-par 70 to lie six shots off the clubhouse lead held by fellow American Gary Woodland.

Woodland would rather be leading, but in some ways it might be less pressure coming from behind. He knows what he'll need to do to regain the lead. "I played 29 holes, made - I think I dropped three shots today and two of those were 3-putts". It's going to take that tomorrow. He checked all the right boxes, had all the firepower Bellerive could ask for and a two-pack of majors to prove his pedigree; but with all the other power players perfectly aligned for what promised to be a long drive competition he blended into the crowd.

Woods had a similar outlook after his round: "Not just myself, but everyone's going to have to shoot low rounds". Its soft, it's gettable and you can't just go out there and make a bunch of pars. For most of the time he was winning his 14 majors, Tiger was a supreme player who got out front and didn't make mistakes. Woods makes his second birdie through three holes and is now 10-under par.

Ryan Fox is battling away well at the PGA Championship, seven shots off the lead with one round to play.

Shane Lowry was one of a multitude of golfers up at the crack of dawn in St Louis to finish out his second round in the USPGA Championships.

In his third round, he hit 10 of 14 fairways, 15 of 18 greens in regulation, was 3 for 3 scrambling and stroked 30 putts.

To say Brady Brown of Robinson, Illinois came prepared with his attire for this PGA Championship would be an understatement.

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

Taking advantage of the marshmallow-soft greens, he hit a series of precise approach shots and converted with the putter to plunder five birdies.

Sky Sports lost the rights to golf's "other" major two years ago and in 2017 United Kingdom fans came dangerously close to not being able to watch the tournament at all.

Shot of the day came from England's Matt Wallace, who aced the par-three 16th on his way to a 68 to close on the same mark as Johnson.

Vermeer's 6-over was fifth best among club pros.

They have previously picked up rights to global events in smaller countries, but in 2018 have taken three-year deals to broadcast La Liga, Serie A, Eredivisie and Chinese Super League matches in the United Kingdom - as well as the PGA Championship.

Unfortunately, unless you were at Bellerive, you didn't see any of that thanks to the Turner coverage windows for the first two rounds of the event.
