FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) — Brooks Koepka has turned a public golf course into his private domain at the PGA Championship.

Along with setting the 36-hole scoring record in major championships, Koepka has opened a seven-shot lead over Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott going into the third round at Bethpage Black.

He has made only two bogeys all week. Koepka has been alone in the lead since his 12-foot birdie putt on his 12th hole of the opening round.

Among those playing early Saturday in the third round was Rory McIlroy, who had to rally to make the cut. McIlroy made eagle on the par-5 fourth hole.

Koepka was in the final group with Spieth, who hasn't been in the last group at any tournament since the final round of the British Open last summer.
