PGA Championship 2018 live blog: Everyone chasing Brooks Koepka as final round underway at Bellerive

News

This is it. This is major. This is the final round of the 100th PGA Championship. We’ve got a stacked leader board and a perfect weather forecast (Provided you’re sitting on your couch). So keep it right here for all the latest scores, news, highlights and shirt changes.

(All times ET)

1:03 p.m.: It’s going to take a flawless round from Jordan Spieth—actually, a 60 or a 61 is most likely necessary for the 25-year-old to have a chance at the Wannamaker. But early in his round, Spieth is playing nearly flawless golf. The young Texan birdied the first and second holes, and his birdie putts at the third and fourth holes just slid by.

Spieth hit another good approach at the fifth hole and has about a 35-footer for birdie. He’s currently 6-under and T-15.

12:55 p.m.: With hardly any wind and the course still soft from rain earlier in the week, more low scores are expected on Sunday at Bellerive Country Club. Already Cameron Smith and Chris Stroud have posted 66. Here’s a look at the current leader board with the final pairing of Brooks Koepka Adam Scott still two hours from teeing off:

1 . Brooks Koepka (-12)
2 . Adam Scott (-10)
T-3 . Jon Rahm (-9)
T-3 . Rickie Fowler (-9)
T-3 . Gary Woodland (-9)
T-6 . Tiger Woods and five other guys not named Tiger Woods (-8)

12:50 p.m.: One course change that could have a huge effect on Sunday’s proceedings is the moving up of the tees on Bellerive’s 11th hole. Like it did in the second round, this par 4 will play under 300 yards and tempt players into taking a crack. Our man on the ground Joel Beall has a nice breakdown here of what we can expect to see there today.

12:38 p.m.: OMG TIGER IS HERE AND HE LOOKS LIKE A BOSS:

Try to stay calm, people. And by people, I mostly mean me. . .

12:35 p.m.: Tiger Woods is two hours from teeing off, but I wanted to share this fortune I got with my Chinese take-out order last night. True story.

Of course, I have no clue what any of this means or whether this is a good or bad omen for the 14-time major champ.

12:13 p.m.: Nothing to see here, folks. Just a couple of superstars having a pretty involved conversation ahead of their final rounds at a major championship:

We don’t know exactly what Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy were talking about, but we found the clip oddly fascinating. Neither will be a factor today, but on the bright side, a bunch of other big names are in the hunt to win the season’s final major. Strap in and enjoy!
