"There's no excuse. It's one or two extra putts from 10 feet for par or birdie", Scott said.
The putt tracer clearly lied to us because Tiger's attempt to save par followed that track perfectly.
Koepka was the 54-hole leader.
In second place after a second consecutive round of 65 is Adam Scott, the likeable, dignified Australian who used five years...
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.
Speaking after his third-round 66, Woods admitted the delay in play over the course of the weekend has taken it's toll on him. "They were talking about him as we left, and I was just standing there laughing".
Woods failed to convert on both, despite having given himself excellent chances.
Six birdies in his first 13 holes offset a solitary bogey and lifted Woods, who started the day 10th, to within a shot of the lead amid increasing excitement.
He missed. And then he missed the next from 4 feet for birdie and ended his day with 10 straight pars.
Patrick Reed and Bubba Watson missed it, but nobody outside the top eight made a big run, and that means the Masters champion and will join Watson on the team. Furyk then has four captain's picks to make on September 4.
Neves inspires Wolves to draw with Everton
The 32-year-old played for his old club Everton last season and recently moved to the MLS where he joined D.C. Pochettino decided keeping players was the priority after a third successive top-three finish.
Koepka may have won, but this was Woods' day nonetheless. He said there have been no physical issues since the week began with him taking ice baths to combat swelling.
"Honestly, I haven't hit it great, up to my standards, these first couple days", Finau said. "Twenty-nine holes, it's not necessarily the physical, it's this mentally grinding that hard for 29 holes in this heat".
"The crowds here, they let you know what's going on", Koepka said with a big grin.
There were also some mesmerising iron shots that resulted in tap-in birdies at the second and third that got his round off to the ideal start. 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. "Being in Tiger's group is always exciting". "I'm getting a lot of support, which is nice".
But Woods could turn it only so far.
And the round was solid, perhaps something to build on.
On No. 18, Woods offered one final flourish.
Woods said he had trouble judging the speed of the greens, especially on the back nine, and his three-putt on 17 was the result of an over-correction.
With two birdies over his first three holes, and seemingly the entire leaderboard moving backward, Tiger was in contention early. But there's no question what Woods will need to do. "The golf course is playing soft, it's gettable, you have to make birdies". Plenty went missing; we saw none of Tony Finau's insane no-par roller coaster front nine (7 birdies, a triple, and a bogey).
