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

PGA Championship Golf

The Kiwi golfer had six birdies and a bogey to shoot five-under 66 after a morning tee-off, jumping from a share of 80th to a share of 11th in the second round, which didn't quite finish on Saturday (NZT) early due to inclement weather.

Rory McIlroy was very pleased with his shot Friday when he skipped the golf ball off of the cart path on hole No. 10 at the 2017 PGA Championship. Graham DeLaet had consecutive eagles on 14 and 15, with birdies on 13 and 16, six under par in four holes. The result was the highest score to lead the first round of the PGA Championship in seven years, a 4-under 67 by Kevin Kisner and Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark. He bogeyed the first holes then the fourth and par-5 seventh to slip to 6 over, but he birdied five of the next 10 holes to get to 2 under for the day and 1 over for the tournament.

"Historically I'm pretty solid with the lead so that was kind of the goal", Spieth said. American Chris Stroud is best placed among those yet to complete the round, five-under with five holes left.

Kisner hasn't fared well in a dozen major appearances, but that hasn't changed his attitude when it comes to vying for the biggest wins in the sport.

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'm not even sure what my worst shot was - there were too many count.

Scott said it "just wasn't his day" as he suffered a double-bogey and five bogeys, but he salvaged his round two late birdies.

Justin Rose missed the cut by one shot, whilst the likes of Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson and last year's victor Jimmy Walker will all be taking the weekend off.

At one point Friday, Fowler went over to talk to National Basketball Association star Andre Iguodola - who was following the group that included both Fowler and Rory McIlroy - while waiting to hit a shot. "So, on the 18th I hit a good tee shot and I was in between clubs for the second and I picked the right club and got to eight feet to hole the putt". When he doubled the par-3 17th, it pushed him back over par for the tournament.

After a fairly static start to the round for a trio of players who entered the day in the top three on the leaderboard, things took a turn on No. 12.

Fowler will begin the third round several groups in front of the leaders, still close enough to be a factor if he can shoot a round in the 60s.

"I don't know if it's the new putter I'm using, but the greens here are really fast and I'm not expecting my putts to fall".
