US PGA co-leader Kisner comfortable at Quail Hollow

US PGA co-leader Kisner comfortable at Quail Hollow

Kisner is tied at 8 under with Hideki Matsuyama atop the leaderboard at Quail Hollow.

There's nobody in the sport of golf more calm, cool and collected than reigning U.S. Open champion, Brooks Koepka.

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

Rory McIlroy kept his bid for a third US PGA Championship title on track with a remarkable par to start his second round at Quail Hollow. Make a lot of pars and get to a par-5 or one of those short par 4s, I can do my wedge game and get it to 10 or 12 feet. So I hit a six-iron and just tried to bounce it up the cart path and see where it goes. Heavy rain and nearby lightning strikes forced players and spectators back inside, but the course yielded more birdies after play resumed.

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. And it was on his mind Friday at Quail Hollow when he was outside the cut line and running out of holes. He's been unbelievable at majors in the past few years, and if somebody is going to make a charge from deep, I'm guessing it will be him. I don't feel like I have to read it and over read it. It's a major and like I said it's a tough venue. He had three birdies and one bogey on his card. "And I think that is the department where I've struggled this week so far", he said.

His first hole after the turn summed up his afternoon in a nutshell.

The 33-year-old from SC has won twice on the PGA Tour, and has also lost four times in playoffs.

Fowler shot a 1-under 70 early on Friday and was tied for seventh place (3-under 139) when play was suspended due to darkness.

"It just looks like that guy right now has his priority set on playing good golf", Day said.

"I'm not really sure".

He had lost none of his momentum when he returned to the fairways after sinking another couple of birdies, with a missed opportunity on the last costing him the chance to take the outright lead. "I was able to lay down in the locker room and get some rest", world number three Matsuyama said.

Olesen has two top-10 finishes at majors, with the most recent of those coming at the 2013 Masters. I burned a lot of edges.

"I'm probably not playing as well as I did at the end of a year ago".
