Playing in the final group with American Koepka, 2013 Masters winner Scott took a share of the lead for the first time on the 13th hole, birdying before Koepka missed his own birdie opportunity.

Koepka took the lead back by birdying the 15th hole and 16th holes, putting the pressure back on the Australian.

A swashbuckling Woods has drew regular, deafening roars from the enormous Missouri crowds at Bellerive Country Club while manufacturing birdies from the trees, having not hit a single fairway on the front nine.

But the four-time PGA Championship winner, in search of his 15th major title, dramatically drained a birdie on the 18th to finish on 14-under.

Scott’s fellow Australian Day was fighting to keep his head above water until a bogey at the 10th hole dropped him to eight under — putting his hopes of a second PGA Championship title on life support.

Meanwhile, Australian Cameron Smith signed off on the year’s final major in style with a four-under-par 66 bringing his 72-hole total back to one under.

Smith’s countryman Marc Leishman was three shots back after a 71 left him at two over.
