Swimmer Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole Johnson look on during the first round of the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club

Quail Hollow is playing host to the 99th PGA Championship, the fourth and final major of the season.

Matsuyama, whose six top-10 finishes in 20 previous Major starts include a runner-up effort at this year's US Open, could also become only the second Asian man to claim a Major crown after South Korea's Yang Yong Eun at the 2009 PGA.

Going out with the morning groups, Kisner took full advantage, firing a 4-under 67 for the second consecutive day to sit at 8 under for the event, tied with Hideki Matsuyama atop the leaderboard. So not only did the Austrian fail to move the cut line, he wound up missing the cut with that bogey on his last hole. He finished with a bogey and a 73 and was 11 shots behind.

McIlroy had a three-hole stretch Thursday that included a double bogey after he had reached 2 under for the tournament.

McIlroy won again at Quail Hollow with a 61 that sent him to a seven-shot victory.

Victory despite 'toughest hurdles': JD(U)'s Sharad Yadav congratulates Congress leader Ahmed Patel
The JD (U) vote proved crucial for Patel after Karamsi Patel voted for the BJP, as Modwadia confirmed today. These developments are being closely watched and there is speculation about a rift within the JD (U).

But that was before the rain. Fowler has shot rounds of 69 and 70 in the PGA's first two days.

Matsuyama has more experience on the big stage. The 25-year-old Japanese star already was 5 under for his round in tough conditions, and he added two birdies after the rain.

Kisner is all about grit and a sharp short game.

Eagles flew Saturday at Quail Hollow. He shot a five-under 66 in round two.

"Yeah, I putted better", he said.

Notes From The Phillies' 3-1 Win Over New York
Cesar Hernandez and Freddy Galvis each delivered an RBI single in the fifth to account for the Phillies' runs against Matz. Aaron Nola struck out eight batters and allowed one run in seven innings to beat the Mets 3-1 on Saturday.

"I am playing well". He had a good round going on Saturday, two under for the day heading into the final hole, but ended with a double to drop him back to three over for the tournament. He started to show signs of turning the corner last week at Firestone.

"To be able to change that weakness into a strength is why he's so dominant", Day said. "Eighteen is just a ridiculously hard hole today". "I'm taking the same concept I used last week".

Mickelson didn't make a birdie until his 31st hole, and by then it was too late.

The three major champions this year - Sergio Garcia (Masters), Brooks Koepra (US Open), and Jordan Spieth (The Open) share another common denominator - they have six letters in their Christian name, and six in their surname.

He punched the 6-iron and it skipped twice along the cement path with so much speed that it went into the bunker, out of the bunker, onto the green and across the green until it settled in the light rough on the other side. His lone slip-up came when he took four strokes on the par-three 13th.

Wall Street higher but on track for deep weekly losses
The S&P 500 volatility index jumped again on the latest jawboning in the US-North Korea standoff. However, three days of losses have pulled markets sharply lower for the week.
