US PGA Championship 2018 LIVE leaderboard for round three at St Louis

The Offalyman then birdied the third hole, his 12th, and two more birdies followed to bring Lowry to seven-under for the tournament, three behind leader Woodland on ten-under.

Charl Schwartzel, Thomas Pieters and Dustin Johnson are all on -7 with Lowry.

Right in front of them was U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, who had a 20-foot birdie putt he wanted to make for no other reason than he likes to make birdies.

"The golf course is gettable", Woodland said.

Defending champion Justin Thomas was at 2 under through seven holes, while Rory McIlroy was frustrated with all pars in his seven holes. I mean, there's a lot of Mizzou people out there.

Woods got up-and-down from 69 yards for birdie on the par-5 eighth when he resumed, but his momentum was slowed at the start of the back nine when he twice missed par putts from about 5 feet, sandwiched around a birdie.

"And on top of that, if you hit the ball well enough, then you're going to leave yourself in the right sections".

With the event playing catch-up following the weather delay yesterday, Woods had to wait until the field finished up before discovering his tee time for the third round.

"Obviously things haven't been going well for me this year".

That put him at 10-under 130, breaking by one the PGA Championship record and tying the 36-hole score for all majors. The third round featured threesomes off both tees, meaning close to five-hour rounds on a course that feels even longer to walk because of the soggy conditions.

"I didn't know", Koepka said.

It's the 34th and 35th time a player has shot 63 in a major championship and the first since Tommy Fleetwood did it in the final round of this year's U.S. Open at Shinnecock.

Kisner shot 29 on the back nine - his first nine - and was threatening to shoot a tournament-record 62 but bogeyed the final hole and settled for 64.

He's played 66 rounds of the championship and has played 30 of those rounds under par, a dozen at level par and two dozen over par.

Finau, who was doing an audition of sorts for a spot on the Ryder Cup team, being paired with Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk, impressed the captain by starting out with seven birdies on the first eight holes, including the first five.

After opening his day with a gain at the par-five eighth he dropped back to two-under with an immediate bogey at the next but a flawless back nine, including a late birdie at the par-five 17th moved him into contention.
