McIlroy Blames "Complete Different" Course After Tough 2nd Round At The PGA

Stricker: Mickelson needs to 'show me something' to earn spot on Presidents Cup team

What's wrong with Rory McIlroy? Not as much as you might think.

On another hard scoring day on the slick greens Oosthuizen's even par round saw him close on second round leaders Kevin Kisner and Hideki Matsuyama‚ who came back to the field.

Day is starting to look like the No. 1 player in the world he was for most of past year, playing a four-hole stretch around the turn in 5-under par, posting a 66 and finishing two shots out of the lead. Hideki Matsuyama was another shot behind.

Justin Thomas, the son of a PGA professional, had the right formula. He's tied for 16th.

The group, which played so slow all day and had been as much as a hole behind everyone else, hustled up the fairway and knocked their balls onto the green. Matsuyama fell a stroke back with his bogey on the first hole, and matched Kisner's birdie on No. 7.

Chris Stroud is trying to catch up to co-leaders Hideki Matsuyama and Kevin Kisner at the PGA Championship. 14 and 15 for a two-shot lead.

Day said looking back he's glad they made the call to complete the round, but admitted, "thinking about it, if I went bogey, bogey I would be very devastated right now". Kisner was four-under through 17 holes and moved to 8-under, while Olesen (four-under) was yet to start second round.

Kisner had the lead going into the final round, a great spot to pursue his first major championship.

Day plunged out of contention with a quadruple-bogey at the last, while Kisner eked out a one-over 72 on a Quail Hollow course that bared its teeth despite little wind.

SLAMMED: Three weeks after Spieth got the third leg of the Grand Slam by winning the British Open, his putting stroke hasn't helped him at Quail Hollow. Got to the PGA Tour, learned how to win there. It was one of those days, when nothing went my way. I think around the green has been poor, but I think tee to green I have been pretty solid. "And yeah, I have a lot of opportunities". "And being able to combine that today, just felt like the old days - which is only past year".

J.B. Holmes shot 67 on Saturday, moving to 1 over for the tournament.

Rains made the course slightly less menacing late Friday, and more is forecast.

Stricker did not speak those words without reservation, as he followed those comments by adding: "That doesn't sound right coming from a guy like me talking to Phil". "It would have been nearly impossible if it hadn't got any rain".

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.
