Koepka's lapse also brought many more players into the frame, with halfway leader Gary Woodland, Spain's Jon Rahm and Rickie Fowler on nine under and Woods four off the pace alongside defending champion Justin Thomas, Ireland's Shane Lowry, Jason Day, Stewart Cink and Charl Schwartzel.

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

The crowds are already amped for what could be an historic Sunday and multiple golfers have noted that this is the most fans they've ever played in front of.

"I've worked my way into a chance to win this tournament just to throw it away on a bad decision", said Spieth.

"For some reason I can really tune in in the majors", he said, "and I have no idea why".

With roars for Woods unheard anywhere this side of Augusta National, Koepka kept his cool and ran off two birdies on the back nine at Bellerive right after Woods closed within one shot. Spieth didn't get under par for the tournament until his seventh hole Friday - the par-3 16th hole - and he managed to do enough right for a 66 to get within seven shots of the lead. The plan was to finish the second round, make the cut and then immediately start the third round in threesomes off both tees.

Three-time major champion Jordan Spieth, trying to complete a Career Grand Slam with a victory this weekend, got to within four of the lead but was undone with a triple bogey at the par-4 12th after going out of bounds with his second shot. A bogey at the first, then five straight pars made him, it seemed, an afterthought amid all the drama around him.

"Hopefully we can come back soon", Tiger said.

"I've watched Tiger win 14 of these things hanging around a lot of the time", Scott said. "On the second hole, when I hit it in the water, that was a big boost to knock it in there tight and only make bogey".

Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol.

The PGA Championship moves to May next year, which isn't going to do the event any favors in terms of standing out; the only possible benefit is coming earlier in the golf calendar, between the Masters and the U.S. Open, but that's not going to make it feel like a bigger event.

"That self-belief has to come out and I feel like the last six to eight weeks has been a real positive for me. And I blew it by about four feet and then pulled the next one".

Woodland and the rest of the field are chasing Koepka, who has won the past two U.S. Opens. It's like, 'Yeah, OK.' I don't know what to say to that. He had another good look at No. 8, a birdie that would have put even more pressure on Koepka.
