ST. LOUIS — They came to Bellerive to believe.
To believe that the clock had been turned back to 2006, when Tiger Woods was the No. 1 player in the world. To believe that the player that nearly every golfer used to fear when he appeared on the leaderboard would work his magic in the standings once again.

Woods gave the raucous gallery at the PGA Championship something to believe in during his third round on Saturday. A string of three birdies in a row pushed Woods to 4-under through his first eight holes of the round. That final birdie, at No. 8, got him to 8-under for the tournament and just two shots back of the leaders, who were just getting their rounds underway.
