Matsuyama tied for PGA C'ship lead after 2 rounds

He also bogeyed the par-4 18th after he sent his tee shot into a fairway bunker, then clipped the lip of the trap when he tried to escape and sent that shot left of the green and left his chip short, prompting him to take an extra swing of his wedge in frustration.

Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy's one-over 72 left him 10 shots off the lead on two over.

McIlroy came into the event as the pre-tournament favourite on the back of top-five finishes in his last two starts and a brilliant record at the host venue Quail Hollow. "So it's a tough track where they're putting these flagsticks".

The 33-year-old Kisner attacked the par-five holes in second-round action, carding an eagle on the seventh and birdies on the 10th and 15th.

Canadian Graham DeLaet eagles the par-four 14th and par-five 15th to surge to the edge of contention.

Bernd Wiesberger returned to complete three holes.

Day, the 2015 PGA Championship victor and runner-up past year, had dropped a shot on day two but a stunning tap-in eagle at the par-5 seventh hole at Quail Hollow preceded three consecutive birdies as he raced to a five-under-par total.

The second-round effort by the Farmington resident who grew up playing Oakridge Country Club vaulted him into a tie with Lehi's Tony Finau for 23rd place at 1-over par heading into Saturday's third round. For once McIlroy had an off day with the driver, which compromised his approach shots to the greens and, averaging only 46 feet proximity to the hole, piled the pressure on the putter. After a delay of 1 hour and 43 minutes, McGirt returned to birdie the par-4 fifth hole to get back in the mix at even par and 6 over for the tournament, but carded bogey on two of his final three holes to post a 2-over 73.

On Thursday, Lahiri played solid but the scores did not reflect the same. So, I was again three-over. Three-over, he still found himself at three-over after 15.

Of his first round, Lahiri said, "Frankly I played solid but it was only in the second nine (front nine of the course) that I got going".
