Highlights from Tiger Woods' 66 on Saturday at PGA

Brooks Koepka lines up a putt on the 15th green during the third round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at Bellerive Country Club. And then the birdie, settling for par that, inside, had to have felt like bogey (or worse).

Asked to play 29 holes in stifling heat on Saturday, the 42-year-old completed one round of 66 in the morning before following it with another in the afternoon.

"A kid legit just passed out right before Tiger teed off on No. 12", Kyle Porter tweeted.

A roar resounded across the 7,316-yard layout when Woods dropped a six-foot birdie putt at the par-5 eighth to pull level with the chase pack behind Koepka and Woodland. It's an annual expectation for the PGA Championship, which already struggles for an identity and for the interest the other three majors never have trouble generating.

His nearest challenger is former Masters victor Adam Scott of Australia, who carded a fine five-under 65 for 10-under 200, two shots back.

Woods heads into the third round on four under par.

Gary Woodland lost his way in his footprints in a bunker and made triple bogey on No. 10, falling six shots behind, and still managed a 71 to stay within three shots of the lead, along with Jon Rahm (66) and Rickie Fowler (69).

Tiger Woods sits tied for 24th at minus-3. Then play was suspended and the day got weird.

While Tiger Woods made noise with five birdies on the front nine to move rapidly up the tournament leader board, one of his biggest fans drew plenty of his own attention in the gallery.

Birdies were abundant early, a hint that scoring conditions might rival those of Friday that saw three players make a run at matching the all-time low major round of 62 by Branden Grace of South Africa from last year's British Open.

"Yeah, could have been a little bit closer", he said, "but I got a shot going into tomorrow".

More than anything, this is just a guy flailing when he knows he can do better.

And it was only good for a one-shot lead over Kevin Kisner.

That put him at 10-under 130, breaking by one the PGA Championship record and tying the 36-hole score for all majors.

"That self-belief has to come out and I feel like the last six to eight weeks has been a real positive for me".

"I hit it good on the back nine today, I just didn't make anything. Having said that, I would have shot a much higher score yesterday". It nearly goes without saying that until he can find some consistence with his scoring clubs - namely his wedges and his putter - he will continue to fall short in the majors.

He won't get to No. 1 in the world with a victory on Sunday, but he'll certainly make a statement that will be impossible for anyone to ignore.
