Brooks Koepka, USA, has the 54 hole lead at the 100th U.S. PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St Louis.
“I’m just focused on me.”
“If I do what I am supposed to do, I should win the gold tournament.”
“There’s a lot of star power and it should be, it’s a Major Championship.”
“You should see the best players in the world come to the top and that’s what you have and that’s what’s going to make this event very exciting to watch tomorrow.”
“You would expect two or three of them to really make a push to get off to a good start and challenge me, I guess.”
“Everybody out here is so good and you look at this leaderboard and they are names that I’ve grown up watching, that everybody else loves to watch play.”
“I feel like I’m extremely confident. I like the way I’m hitting the ball, I’m putting much better and my short game’s on point this week.”
“So when all those add up, I could see why I played so well.”
If Brooks Koepka can maintain his lead for 18 more holes, he’ll become the first player to win the PGA Championship and U.S. Open in the same year since 2000, and that was Tiger Woods.
Sitting in second place on his own is Adam Scott, from Australia, a third round -5 under par 65 elevating him up the leaderboard;
“It’s been quite a while since I was really in contention, which has been quite frustrating.”
“But I’m glad I got a dose of it today, because I want a whole lot tomorrow.”
Three players are tied in third spot at -9 under par, Rickie Fowler, USA, -1 under 69 today, Jon Rahm, Spain, -4 under 66, and leader for the first two days Gary Woodland, USA, shooting a disappointing +1 over 71 third round.
Lets not forget Tiger, -4 under 66, equaling the low round of the day, getting him to T6 at -8 under par, along with a posse of players on the same score.
