Stormy weather halts play at PGA Championship

DustinJohnson- Cropped

Thorbjorn Olesen stopped using his given first name in school because there were other classmates also named Jacob.

Offaly golfer Shane Lowry has hit out at officials at the US PGA Championship at Quail Hollow after his playing group were told to hurry up during their opening round. Kisner finished with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole.

Numerous top-ranked players in the world are lurking close behind.

World number one Dustin Johnson was in a pack on 70 that included Australia's Jason Day, Spain's Jon Rahm and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama.

"I birdied them all today", Kisner said.

"So that's kind of been my game plan".

"I will try to improve on the weekend and try to get a couple of scores under par".

I picked Rory McIlroy to win this week and, well, you've seen how that turned out.

There are some large differences, though, which explains why only one of nine past winners at Quail Hollow broke par Thursday.

One of the good things of the day was that some of the things that I worked on with Vijay (Divecha) sir worked out, like attitude on the golf course.

Nemanja Matic Sale a Casualty of "Crazy Transfer Market", Says Antonio Conte
Chelsea have sold midfielder Nemanja Matic to Manchester United and Diego Costa is also poised to leave. Conte kept his counsel on Chelsea's transfer business, with the summer window open until August 31.

"I can't putt any worse than I did today", Spieth said.

"You have to drive it in the fairway " that's definitely key", Fowler said.

"I kind of accept the fact that I'm essentially out of this tournament pending some form of insane stuff the next couple of days", he said after a one-birdie 73. I just tried to bounce it up the path. "I've made a lot of putts here". Thomas finished ninth in that tournament and tied a then-major championship single round record after shooting 63 in the third round at Erin Hills. He had three birdies and one bogey on his card. "We had a nice bit of fun and had a little bet going down the last (for lowest score) and I almost snuck $100 off Rory".

"Coming in with some short irons into these greens was definitely the key to the round.

The pins were in such tough locations, it was hard to get the ball to feed to the hole", Spieth said after his round.

Olesen has won four times on the European Tour, including once in each of the past three seasons, but he's still searching for his first win of 2017. We are working on me not getting worked up about the outcome or the score at a hole.

Fowler's tee shot landed in the bunker on the right side of the fairway after what he called a "mental mistake" on his drive. So, the first holes were shaky by any standard and I was three-over.

Phil the Thrill offered no thrills whatsoever to those in Charlotte with rounds of 79 and 74 at the PGA Championship, missing the cut by a mile and looking every bit his age of 47 - if not older.

The Australian world No.17 started round two of the final major of the year well in contention at even-par, but a five-over-par 76 in North Carolina saw 2013 Masters champion Scott plummet down the leaderboard. "I burned a lot of edges. To be honest with you, I felt like crap".
