Rory McIlroy uses cart path to make stunning par



"Get me to the airport, fast", he said upon leaving.

"He made every putt around 20 feet, and was seven under after nine", Phelps said.

Kisner, the 33-year-old from SC, had set an imposing clubhouse target at the PGA Championship of eight-under 134, but on a day hit by a thunderstorm, Matsuyama joined him on that mark.

What happened next was this: a tap-in birdie at the par-5 seventh after Spieth went for the green in 2 with his hybrid club and his ball rolled just off the back of the putting surface; another birdie at No. 8 after Spieth pitched to 2 feet; and a long birdie putt at No. 9 that he narrowly missed.

And while McIlroy has shot rounds of 62 and 61 in his two PGA Tour victories at Quail Hollow, he said a low round on this course is more like 66 or 67.

Simmering North Korea tensions knock back Wall Street
Stocks saw some strength during trading on Friday, regaining ground following the sell-off seen in the previous session. Travel website operator Priceline Group Inc fell 6.9% after a disappointing financial forecast.

A near two-hour delay held up the later starters, but when play resumed Matsuyama secured two more birdies to match the American.

This is a tough course, but the conditions were ideal, so if the forecasts are right with rain an wind over the next three days, Quail Hollow could become a nightmare.

Aiming to become the youngest player to win a career Grand Slam, Spieth at least made back-to-back birdies to finish a one-over front nine. Day was joined by Chris Stroud at two strokes back.

Jamie Lovemark of the United States plays his second shot from a bunker on the fifth hole. If he had finished his round at 4 over - that would have required one birdie and two pars - the cut would have gone to 4 over and eliminated Adam Scott, Charles Howell III and Kevin Chappell.

Further back, the hopes of championship favourite Rory McIlroy and Grand Slam seeker Jordan Spieth are hanging by a thread, 10 and 11 strokes behind respectively.

The 30-year-old Kiwi climbed from 80th overnight at Quail Hollow into a share of 11th, amassing six birdies with his only blemish a bogey at the par-four 11th. The South African followed his opening round of 70 with a four-under 67 Friday.

"I don't know if the other players should be nervous or not, but this is my first experience leading a major, or tied for the lead after 36 holes". He had not missed a cut all year until The Open. He did so at Phoenix earlier this season, and during the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine.

"This is not the Quail Hollow we have gotten to know over the last 10 years", he said.

Kisner and Olesen are one stroke clear of five players who posted 3-under 68s: U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka, two-time PGA Tour victor Gary Woodland, rookie Grayson Murray, a Raleigh resident, Chris Stroud and D.A. Points.

The five-time major victor, who captured the 2005 PGA Championship, shot a 74 on Friday at Quail Hollow, but his fate was set when he shot 79 in the first round without making a birdie. Here are the players that trail Olesen and Kisner.
