Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, watches his tee shot on the 17th hole during the second round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North CarolinaJason Day of Australia, warms up on the 11th hole during the second round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at the Quail Hollow Club.
Or Adam Scott's 76 that started with a four-putt double, and ended with a repeat - eight putts in two holes.
The one big weakness in Matsuyama's game has been on the greens where he is 167 on Tour in strokes gained/ putting at -.306.
The storms arrived. Play was halted for almost two hours.
"I'm happy I'm in the position I'm in".
In what could go down as a classic major meltdown, Day chose to try an impossible shot from behind the tree while playing the final hole in the last group on Saturday. Louis Oosthuizen also stood at minus-5 following a 67.
There are 25 players who must finish their second rounds starting at 7.30am (1130 GMT) Saturday.
Bogeys on the final two holes did not faze Stroud, the journeyman who had entered 289 PGA Tour events without a victory until the Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada last Sunday. At 18, he bounced an approach off a stone bridge that saved him from another splash but sent him into deep rough and a bogey. "I was pretty consumed with what the heck I was trying it do on the second shot". "I've hit some good shots and some loose shots". Ranked third in the world behind Americans Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson, Matsuyama hails from Japan, a country that has never had a male victor of a major championship. He isn't willing to look that far ahead, and Matsuyama isn't about to feel content about his game. Instead, it's going to take a miracle for him to catch Kisner.
He followed a bogey on the par-3 13th with three straight birdies, rolling in a 40-foot putt on the 16th and offering a grin and a fist pump. Day shot a 5-under 66 on Friday. "Somehow, my worst shots were finding the fairway". It's the sixth consecutive year that the PGA Championship has been halted due to a suspension of play because of inclement weather, a key factor in the PGA's decision earlier this week to move the tournament to May in 2019. That included his first World Golf Championship at the HSBC Champions in Shanghai. On the past three occasions, he either won or lost in a playoff.
Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els had a miserable start to their 100th Major as they shot 79 and 80 respectively.
"He's on the range and he's the last guy to leave".
