Stormy weather halts play at PGA Championship

Stormy weather halts play at PGA Championship

Kiwi golfer Ryan Fox has rocketed up the leaderboard at the PGA Championship in North Carolina after firing a sublime five-under second round 66. That was in 2009.

Chip Shots learned that Quail Hollow received a visit Wednesday from another person connected to the Nelson tournament.

"It was on my mind today to play this weekend", he said.

No, I'm not anticipating anything so captivating this weekend.

Although Crooked Stick measured more than 7,200 yards, Daly was able to fly all of the trouble the course had in place as defence and was often hitting pitching wedges into greens while the other players were forced to hit two- and three-irons.

The 51-year-old with the one-of-a-kind career certainly has a history of colorful episodes at majors.

His 3-wood off the 14th tee reached the green about 18 feet away.

Rescuers seek to recover students' bodies from vehicle in California river
Risky conditions are keeping Fresno police from recovering a vehicle containing two bodies believed to be missing Thai students. The military used a Chinook helicopter to survey the steep ravine and photograph the vehicle .

In a striking similarity to his first round, Lahiri once again made his recovery on the back nine despite missed putts after rather disappointing front nines.

He sent his second shot into the primary rough 75 feet from the flagstick on the right side of the green, but chipped to about 5 feet and sank that putt for the birdie. The five-time major victor missed the cut last month in The Open at Royal Birkdale. "The British (Open) and here have been atrocious".

At age 50, and Presidents Cup captain of the USA team, he's getting busy again.

"It's not like I'm hitting the ball crooked, " Mickelson said. He's putting. He's practically the last guy there every single day. We took our youngest out of school, home schooled her on the road when we were out.

Pampling was not that upset, however, as he had no chance of making the cut.

"Pretty bloody happy, to be honest", the 30-year-old Kiwi said. I missed only three fairways in the second round and four in the first round. He managed to hold pars on the next four, but then came a disastrous stretch with bogeys from seventh to ninth, the segment which provided succor a day earlier. But he wasn't about to be greedy. "They are so quick". You shoot even par, you have done really well.

Kisner, born in SC, joined him at four under in the afternoon with a birdie on his final hole in Charlotte.

Rod Pampling Hit the Greatest Shot in Major Championship History
The Australian raced to the tee and took a wild swipe at the ball, slashing it left into trees in order to beat the horn. On 17, with the threat of the horn looming, Johnson agreed to rush ahead of the group to get a tee shot off on 18.

It's hard enough to make an eagle at Quail Hollow.

His parents grew up in Charlotte, so this was nearly a second home when Kisner was growing up.

"Usually, I step up for the majors and this year has been slow for me, so being in contention is good for my confidence right now". "Been here a ton". We've spent a lot of time in Charlotte.

The decision to live in Aiken was easy. "Just no reason to bail out on those at this point in the position I was in". "I have to play great but we're only halfway through". "That's what I love about it".

Quail Hollow, so frightening on Thursday and the early part of Friday, suddenly looked vulnerable.

Day, Johnson and Hideki Matsuyama all shot one-under 70s to remain within touching distance of the lead. He played it well out to the left, leaving a downhill putt. He commiserated when Spieth hit his next shot out of the sand to 10 feet and missed the par putt. Does he have a target score in mind for Saturday's third round at Oak Hill?
