Rory closes PGA with 70, may skip FedEx event

Tiger Woods began the final round of the 100th PGA Championship four shots off the lead and went flag hunting early.

He hit his opening approach shot from a left fairway bunker to 7 feet. He missed the birdie putt, but was unfazed.

On the second hole, Woods hit this approach shot from a hanging lie to within 4 feet.

He then nearly jarred his tee shot on the par-3 third.

The back-to-back birdies got him to 10 under par, which quickly became solo second place, three back of Brooks Koepka.

After a couple of poor shots on the par-4 fourth, Woods kept momentum on his side with this par save.

After overshooting the green at the par-3 sixth, Woods couldn’t get up and down from the back bunker and made bogey. He dropped to 9 under, but still only two back of Koepka, who slipped as well.

He got that stroke back by getting up and down from a bunker at the par-5 eighth. At 10 under, he remained two back of Koepka, who birdied the seventh.

He then closed out a front-nine, 3-under 32 with a birdie at the par-4 ninth. Check out this shot that set up birdie at No. 9.

And the putt …

For the record, Woods didn’t hit a fairway on the front nine. But, at 11 under par, he was two back of Koepka, who birdied No. 8.

After a par at the 10th, Woods had this putt for birdie at the 11th … and, incredibly, it did not fall.

But his next birdie attempt did, at the par-4 12th. That got Woods to 12 under par, however, he remained two back of an unflinching Koepka.
