After birdieing five of his first eight holes and playing the front side in 31 strokes, Woods stalled on the back nine, failing to convert any birdie opportunities and squandering a handsome chance at the par-5 17th, where he three-putted for par.

Australian Scott produced a ball-striking round of impeccable quality, a 65 the best score of the afternoon, marred only by a couple of missed putts, including a seven-footer at the last.

Woodland had a chance to show what he's made of after losing four strokes to par in a two-hole stretch with a bogey on No. 9 and a triple on 10.

It's been a big year for Woods.

He made 152 feet, 5 inches of putts Thursday, 72 feet, 5 inches Friday, and 49 feet Saturday.

He missed. And then he missed the next from 4 feet for birdie and ended his day with 10 straight pars.

Woods, searching for a first major win since the 2008 US Open, moved into contention after a blistering front nine which contained five birdies and one bogey.

Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol. Watching Finau make all those birdies, Furyk "didn't say anything, but he was just shaking his head", Finau said.

Koepka was at 12-under 198 and will play in the final group of a major for the first time.

Woodland and the rest of the field are chasing Koepka, who has won the past two U.S. Opens.

He has only one other PGA Tour victory, one in Europe and two in Japan.

Brown bought the costume on Amazon, and said it arrived about a week ago-in plenty of time for the big event.

Bellerive is so soft that a charge can come from anywhere.

"The overall day, I feel like I played well today", Woods said after his round.

"[The wet conditions take] the creativity of the greens away, for sure", he said.

The kinds of excited whispers typically reserved for those peering through the large crowds for a glance at Woods on the course were being used to single out one among those very crowds Saturday. 17 was just, I left every putt short.

Joining Woods at eight-under were second-ranked defending champion Justin Thomas, fellow American Pat Perez, Ireland's Shane Lowry and British Open champion Francesco Molinari of Italy.

"It's a pretty intense environment out there".

"It was awesome", said Stewart Cink, who also shot 66.

Woods, in the eighth month of his comeback from spinal fusion surgery after years of back injuries, began four back.

He never imagined what it would take for him just to get to the weekend.

Having grabbing the lead at Bellerive Country Club with a record-equalling halfway score, Woodland's hard work was almost undone at the par four 10th where his approach found a greenside sand trap.
