Day 2 of the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow

Well, it happens to be so "golf" that after talking to the press yesterday he was desperate to get back to the practice range. Credit him for hanging around with a bunch of pars while a lot of other golfers were finding bogeys on the afternoon. Spieth drove into the fairway bunker off the tee, but then, with the confidence of that hat-trick of red figures till flooding through his veins, he made a decision to go for it. He wasn't about to wake up early and come back for one hole on Saturday.

It's been a hard time for Mickelson on the golf course since he and longtime caddie, James "Bones" Mackay, split late in June. When you play safe into the greens, you give yourself very tricky putts, like the one I had - downhill, left-to-right. "So it was nice to see that one drop". Russell Henley suffered a triple-bogey 7.

Pre-tournament favorites Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy are outside the top 25 entering Sunday. One swing changed everything. So no one knows what he was thinking with that second shot.

He was four-under for the day after an eagle at the par-5 seventh and three birdies in a row when play was halted.

Kisner, not the longest of hitters but unerringly accurate for the most part until he double-bogeyed the 16th and bogeyed the last, posted a seven-under 206 total, one stroke ahead of fellow American Stroud (71) and Japan's Matsuyama (73). The PGA Championship typically features good scoring because it's held in August when water has to be kept on the greens to keep them from dying. The 67s were the highest score to lead the opening round of the PGA Championship since Matt Kuchar shot 67 at Whistling Straits in 2010.

Pampling, a 47-year-old Australian, stepped to the ninth tee box (his 18th hole of the day), knowing that at 12 over he was already going to miss the cut. That was his main concern.

As for the pressure of trying to get the final leg of the Grand Slam?

"I'm happy I'm in the position I'm in", said the South Carolinan. "I'm just losing focus on every shot. Drove it fine. Just not real focused when I'm out there".

At least he was still in the game.

Hideki Matsuyama may share the lead at the US PGA Championship, but felt he hit "too many" bad shots during his stunning second round.

But even though he continues to look a shadow of the player who won made it back-to-back Majors with that 2014 victory in this event, the Quail Hollow course record holder refuses to accept this as a lost cause.

Spaniard Jon Rahm and playing partner Steve Stricker doubled as well.
