Brooks Koepka won the US PGA Championship with a minimum score of 36 holes in major championship history as Tiger Woods missed the cut.

The defending champion shot a 12-under-par 7 to finish at 5-under-par 65 in Long Island's Bethpage Black.

Masters champion Woods has missed the sixth cut at five overtime in the past 11 major league games.

Jordan Spitze (66) was tied for second with Adam Scott (64) and England's Matt Wallace backed off a shot at 5-under par.

Wallace, who had six birdies in the seventh hole, shot a 6-under-par, but joined a four-under-par total in the seventh, eighth, 16th and 17th holes in the second round with a 67.

Early starter Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland scored 71 points with 71 birdies on 71 games, wondering if the 3-overs would be cut off.

In the end, the cut-off marks a four-over-all, meaning Woods missed one shot.

"I made too many mistakes and I did not do small things that I had to do," Woods said. "I did a lot of small things wrong.

"I enjoyed playing again as a Masters champion, and the PGA was a fast turnaround. Unfortunately I did not play well."

Brooks Koepka finished 27 holes before recording his first shot.

Woods and Coffea Poles

After waiting 11 years to win the championship in November, Woods, who is following the 16th major event, has played his first match in 72 games.

He has not played since Augusta National, but his run was inconsistent and the putt did not fall. After finishing second through number nine, he started nine with four views on the fifth hole.

At 43, he missed the second shot in 43 seconds. He shot 17 in his fellow American Koepka.

The winner of the competition tried to win the fourth major championship after winning the US Open in 2017 and 2018.

His driving constantly laughed at one of the hardest courses in golf, and his approach continued to sound and put.

The 29-year-old had three buddies, the tenth in his first 27 holes. And despite the 17th, there will be a big event to stop the successive US PGA Championship.

"This may sound bad, but it was a battle," Koepka said. "I did not hit the ball well. I had some leaking to the right, but I fought with it hanging there.

"I think it would have been more impressive than Thursday, you can still score a good score, not your A-game."

In addition to his 36-hole major record, he has 18 holes, 36 holes and 72 holes in the US PGA Championship.

Matt Wallace will make his sixth hole (Buddy) in the seventh hole (ninth hole)

Wallace shows lessons as McIlroy is hanged.

Wallace, who won three times in the European tour last season, missed a victory in the British Masters last week,

At one time, 29-year-old Koepka followed Koepka and took second place, but just like Tommy Fleetwood, he was 6-under-par.

The Southport golfer hit a four-under-par 70 and the par 71 hit 2-under par.

England's Matt Fitzpatrick scored a 5-under-par 65 to take Olympic champion Justin Rose ahead of Fleetwood.

McIlroy dropped five shots from the 10th to the seventh hole, but in 2012 and 2014 the US PGA champion was proud to have fought back to make the cut.

"I dropped my head off the plane in Florida and I could run, but I wanted to spend the weekend," he told Sky Sports.

"Two years ago, I played in the fourth quarter of the tournament in Boston and won the championship, so I went into my head."

Adam Scott lost his first nine-foot to 119-foot putt in his second round.

Spieth and Scott make contact.

Spieth, who struggled for this season, showed a major pedigree by setting clubhouse goals among early starters.

The 25-year-old will win the US PGA and become the only sixth golfer to win a grand slam in four major competitions.

"I put beautifully inside especially 12 feet," Spieth said. "You can be patient with this golf course. This week's goal is to win at 9:00 on Sunday."

He joined the 2013 Masters champion Scott Masters at 5-under par. Scott scored four birdies in the first five holes and finished the monster putt several times.

The third birdie followed the 4th hole at the back nine hole and the only scratch on the 17th hole (par 3) at the 38th hole putt hole.

Former champion Phil Mikeelson, alongside McIlroy and Australian Jason Day, found occasional irregular tee shots, but the fifth winner still joined the weekend with a par 71 for more than a week.

Under-par 67 and a total of 4-under-par 74, Danny Lee had a poor 4-under 74.
