Day thanks Johnson for 'most clutch thing' at US PGA

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Phil Mickelson managed a quick smile and a tip of the cap to the crowd after his second round at the PGA Championship. I feel like my game truly suits the other three majors maybe more than a PGA Championship.

"I'm disappointed the way I played today", Matsuyama said. And I just walked up to him and said, 'That's the biggest, or most clutch thing I've ever seen anyone do for me'. Then he hit a root on a shot with an 8-iron and bent the club, meaning he couldn't use it when he needed it late in his round. Stuck behind a tree right of the 18th fairway, Day chose not to pitch out to the fairway and tried hooking the ball around the tree and the gallery to the right.

After a double-bogey at the last ruined a late hat-trick of birdies, he signed for a 71 for three-over 216, 10 strokes behind.

The world No.25, who had a share of the lead with Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen at the start of the day, also birdied the par-four 12th en route to shooting a 67 for the second straight round. Hideki Matsuyama almost ties for the lead but his birdie putt stops one roll short of the cup and he stands on six-under along with Chris Stroud.

Trump Pushes Back Against Reports He May Fire Special Counsel Mueller
And in June, Trump's friend Chris Ruddy said the president was considering asking the Justice Department to get rid of Mueller. The president said he was surprised to learn about the search, saying it was something federal authorities "very seldom" do.

Justin Thomas, the son of a PGA professional, had the right formula. "I think that's why I feel like I'm ready to win a major championship now versus previous year, when I probably didn't have that."That's what Tiger [Woods] did so well". What I did [Saturday] was definitely a confidence boost'.

Nobody wants to do that, but there's a small loophole in the rules of golf which makes it preventable: if play is suspended due to darkness, players have the option of finishing the hole they're now playing. He drove the green and left himself a tap-in for eagle. He finished with a 68 and is 2-under for the week.

But even though he continues to look a shadow of the player who won made it back-to-back Majors with that 2014 victory in this event, the Quail Hollow course record holder refuses to accept this as a lost cause. "It's something I'll probably always remember when I look back at my career".

McIlroy was so encouraged by the way he played his version of the Road Hole that he went on to play his opening nine holes in one under par.

He still has a chance to add to that British Open title at St. Andrews in 2010.

Jon Rahm got to as low as 5-under par in his third round and was on the cusp of contention at 2-under for the tournament before giving it all back.

"I had to give him a hug for it". He shot 72 Saturday and is 4-over for the week.

Kisner had the lead going into the final round, a great spot to pursue his first major championship.
