Kisner, Matsuyama lead in a wide-open PGA

PGA Championship- Round One

PGA Championship- Round One

Kisner, the co-leader entering the day, holds a one-shot lead at 7-under 206.

Kisner and Matsuyama, both leading a major for the first time, were at 8-under 134. I think he finishes the job and gets his first major. I could and should have finished at least in the under-par zone.

After those tournament-saving birdies McIlroy smashed his drive fully 365 yards, hit his approach to 14 feet and rolled his putt to the lip of the hole.

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.

Barring a true miracle on Sunday, the Wanamaker Trophy won't be lifted by Jordan Spieth this year. The ball bounced high off a rock and settled into what he called "the worst lie I've seen all week" in the deep Bermuda grass.

Clouds quickly gathered Saturday morning about the time some two dozen players were finishing the rain-delayed second round.

He was tied third alongside US Open champion Brooks Koepka, Gary Woodland, DA Points and Chris Stroud, whose win last week at Barracuda forced him to change plans as he qualified for the PGA Championships. After birdies at the seventh, 14th and 15th - three of the holes he says he has to birdie to compete - against just his fourth bogey of the week (No. 12), Kisner was 10 under par and two strokes ahead.

"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".

"Obviously I'm happy to have made the cut but I'm very disappointed because I got to three under for the tournament and had a few bogeys", said Smith, who won his maiden European Tour title at the Porsche European Open in Germany a fortnight ago.

Asked how he ended up playing with McIlroy in practice, 2016 Challenge Tour victor Smith added: "A good friend of mine knows Rory's caddie (Harry Diamond) so I got his contact details and chatted to him and managed to hook it up". Day and Stroud were two shots behind while Louis Oosthuizen and Francesco Molinari of Italy were three back.

McGirt, who teed off at 1:10 p.m. Friday, completed 11 holes before the horn sounded while he was preparing for a putt on the par-4 third hole.

"Because they were the two things that were missing pretty much the whole year is my driving and my putting, and being able to combine that today, just felt like the old days, which is only last year". 15 and 17 to get back to even par for the day.

After hitting only three fairways in the opening round of his first PGA Championship - and first pro event on American soil - shooting a 75, Fox kept the ball in play Friday and it paid off in a big way.
