Matsuyama cards 64 to tie Kisner for second-round PGA lead

Matsuyama cards 64 to tie Kisner for second-round PGA lead

Turns out there is a plan for Kisner to play the sprawling North Carolina gem; it just took a little research and a monsoon of patience - which has not always been among the 33-year-old's strengths.

The grouping of Phil Mickelson, Jason Dufner and Jimmy Walker combined to shoot 23 over par during the first two rounds. (Insert your Day slow-play gripe here.) Despite this hurry, Day posted three pars, turning in his best prime-time display-a five-under 66-since last year's final round at Baltusrol. Koepka missed a half-dozen putts from 12 feet or closer, and while it looked as though he hit the ball well enough to go low at Quail Hollow, he wasn't the least bit frustrated. His brother-in-law's father is a founding member of the exclusive club that not only is hosting the PGA this week but also is slated as the venue for the 2021 Presidents Cup.

Co-leader Hideki Matsuyama has an "extra gear" in common with numerous greats, Ernie Els said on Friday after playing the second round of the PGA Championship with the Japanese player.

You're forgiven if you forgot how good Day can be.

Kisner really likes the golf course, and he came up to check out the changes about a month ago. Kisner's a shotmaker, not a bomber, after all. "But I've got to play well in them is the thing".

The idea is I have to get rid of negativity and also not be over enthusiastic in cases like back-to-back birdies or similar.

"I've been upset with how I've played in the majors so far in my career", Kisner said. "I feel like I have the game to compete in majors, and tons of 30th to 40th, 50th-place finishes". That's kind of been our goal for the year.

But they have been an integral part of the PGA Championship since its start in 1916, and perhaps even more so since the tour players broke away in 1969 to form what is now the PGA Tour.

Norges Bank Modifies Its Investment in Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) Last Quarter

"I remember in my prime and a lot of other guys' primes when you needed it there was that 20 yards and he's got that ability", continued former world number one Els. He still hit the ball so well that he grabbed two birdies late in the round that enabled him to keep the damage to a minimum.

Soft fairways and rock-hard, ultra-fast greens yielded some major casualties, none more so than five-times major victor Phil Mickelson, whose 79 was his highest ever score in 95 rounds at the PGA Championship.

After all, McIlroy already has two victories at Quail Hollow.

Olesen finished tied for 10th at last week's WGC-Bridgestone after firing a five-under 65 in the final round.

Osweiler could not get a first down in the first quarter but did get the Browns to the seven in the second quarter. The Saints got on the board with a 22 yard field goal by Wil Lutz after the offense bogged down in the red zone.

Still lurking in range, McIlroy fell apart early on the front nine with four bogeys in five holes and had to rally with birdie on the two easiest holes on that side. He's 2 over for the tournament, which is a distant 10 strokes behind Kisner, but he still signed his scorecard with positive vibes.

"Obviously, Kiz is on fire right now", McIlroy said. "There's still 36 holes to go and a lot of golf to be played". It's more in between the ears, and not get ahead of myself.
