Scott in shoot-out with Koepka and Woods for PGA Championship

Australian Adam Scott is fighting with Brooks Koepka for the US PGA Championship lead midway through the final round, while a vintage Tiger Woods is lurking just behind.

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.

A swashbuckling Woods has drawn 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.

Brooks Koepka lines up a putt on the 3rd green.

But the four-time PGA Championship winner, in search of his 15th major title, is at 12-under-par and two shots back from the leaders.

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.
