It'll mark the first time he's been in contention at a major tournament on USA soil since the 2015 Masters-and he's in better position at Bellerive than he was then at Augusta.
Woods had a similar outlook after his round: "Not just myself, but everyone's going to have to shoot low rounds".
He wound up shooting 73 at Carnoustie and was never in contention on the back nine.
It certainly had been a while.
Four other players in the world's top 10 are within four shots. But defending champion Spieth shot 5 over on the final day, and the final two pairings combined to shoot 13 over.
Maybe it was the ban on that long putter, or maybe it was some problems with his swing that sent him churning through coaches. It's my favorite day of the year, four times a year, and this time for the last time in 2018.
That included a missed cut at the U.S. Open and a tie for 61st at the PGA.
This exciting Liverpool squad is just what the Premier League needs
You need to have the right personality for that very hard job. "We are still Rocky Balboa, not Ivan Drago", said Klopp. The first Sunday of Premier League action brings a nice little matchup to start the day: West Ham at Liverpool .
"The greens were getting fuzzy, they're getting slow, and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough, " Woods said.
"Because, if it's another five (years), basically you're wheeling me out to pasture at that point".
Not by matching a PGA Championship record with 10 birdies in the second round.
"A couple years have slipped by where I really haven't contended and I'm going to relish it tomorrow", Scott said after producing the best round of day three. "Sometimes you are in your own mind and don't know where you are at". It's been very not technical, the stuff we've been working on. "If I can get off to a hot start there and playing the rest of the golf course really well, I know I have a chance to win this golf tournament".
"People will be like, 'Oh, that's a stupid move, '" he said, "but I threw it in and then I met the guy after that hole and I signed it for him and he said, 'Are you sure you don't want it back?' And I said, 'You keep that, mate.' I keep the balls that I win with and they're all on the mantel piece, so that one will just live in my memory for being pretty cool out there". He got on a run of pars after the turn before a bogey at the par-4 15th, but Scott bounced back to go birdie-birdie with a par to cap his round. But he now has the chance to win his second major of the season, having previously defended the U.S. Open in June. He just found a way to bury his friend, playing partner and the world's top player, Johnson, and in doing so won the same tournament at 1 over that he won at 16 under the year before.
Scott was close with fellow Australian Jarrod Lyle, who twice beat cancer while working his way onto the PGA Tour.
Asked if that would make winning mean anything more, Scott paused for a long while.
"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", Woods said.
"As much as I can", Brown said of trying to follow Woods throughout his round. "I thought if I didn't pull it off and hit the tree, I'd be somewhere down into the trees and still be able to make five".
