Looking to join Gene Sarazen, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus and Woods as the only players to win the US Open and US PGA in the same season, Koepka had raced to the turn in 30 and briefly enjoyed a five-shot lead at Bellerive Country Club.

Woods, a 14-time major and 4-time PGA champion shot his lowest final-round in a major ever with a six-under 64 that electrified crowds all day.

Woods finished his round with 10 straight pars, including a sloppy three-putt on the par-5 17th hole. Adam Scott is alone in second place, two strokes back. "The beginning of the back nine, I could hear all the roars". This time, Woodland hit two bad green-side sand shots and one not very good one to score a 7 on the par 4. 'The bottom line is that I had the best result of my career in all four majors, so I've got to be happy with that, ' said the 27 year old Englishman. His tee shot sailed into a hazard, forcing Tiger to grind out a par.

"I never would've foreseen that two years ago", Woods said.

US-based Aussie Craig Hocknull is one over to sit +3 through 12 holes, while Cameron Smith is square through seven and four over, both chasing a projected even-par cut line.

Koepka opened birdie-birdie to grab the lead after Woodland made bogey at the second but Woodland birdied the third hole to pull level on 10-under. "For me to make triple on 10, to give myself a little bit of confidence, I told myself I did the same thing in Phoenix". With a front pin on the seventh hole, he went some 25 feet beyond the flag and holed the putt, and then got up-and-down from a bunker on par-5 eighth.

"I feel like I've been doing all the right stuff, and I just haven't been doing it on the golf course". But he answered with four solid rounds at Bellerive, capped by a 69 Sunday that left him with a top-20 finish, while closest pursuers Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson missed the cut.

Schwartzel's only top-five finish since his Masters triumph came past year when he finished third at Augusta National behind the head-to-head duel of victor Sergio Garcia and Britain's Justin Rose.

He looks up to the task, based off his last couple of tournaments.

At the 17th, after ramming his eagle putt through the break, he missed the 4-footer coming back.

He was playing with Kisner, who shot 29 on the back nine and was in the middle of the ninth fairway - his final hole - needing a birdie to become the first player to shoot 62 in the PGA Championship. "Most majors the weekends get hard, but I think this course you're going to have to keep shooting birdies".
