"It's just a dream come true to be here, to be up here (press room) talking to you guys, the PGA Championship, one of the greatest tournaments in the world", Stroud said.

After torching Firestone Country Club en route to a five-shot win last week and bending Quail Hollow to his will on Friday, Matsuyama entered the weekend as the betting favorite and was the "man to beat" according to Jordan Spieth.

Golf great Nick Faldo has slammed Jason Day's "crazy" decision that capped off a third-round implosion at the US PGA Championship.

Italian Francesco Molinari matched Matsuyama's bogey-free 64 Friday by orchestrating his way around the course with five birdies and an eagle to get to five under for the tournament.

Lee had just four pars in a round that also included nine bogeys, a double bogey and four birdies.

Not everyone was left cursing the 18th, with first-round leader Thorbjorn Olesen (three-over) and Patrick Cantley (two-over) both signing off with birdies.

This will be his first time with a piece of the lead heading into the weekend of a major, and he seems excited for the experience and the challenge. He has climbed to third in the world rankings after winning the Bridgestone Invitational a few weeks ago.

Jason Day started looking like the player who was No. 1 for so much of past year.


That slight reprieve allowed him to cling to a one-shot lead over Hideki Matsuyama and fellow American Chris Stroud going into Sunday's final round.

Day - US PGA victor in 2015 - started the day on six under putting him in the final group alongside Kisner and Matsuyama. Birdies on 10th and 15th were neutralised by bogeys on 11th and 12th.

"Even if they didn't do anything else with the golf course and just changed it to full Bermuda like it is now, all of a sudden makes the golf course two shots more hard". Mickelson hasn't won since the British Open in 2013, and this ends a streak of three consecutive years when he at least had a runner-up finish in a major. Casey has been hot lately, finishing 26 or better in his last nine events.

Speaking of his misses, Lahiri explained, "On the second nine (the front side of the course) I missed two makeable putts from short distances like from six feet on fifth (for par) and from five feet on eighth (for birdie)".

All the leaders, with the exception of Oosthuizen, the 2010 British Open victor, are seeking their first major championship. He has been playing as well as anyone lately and it showed on 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", Matsuyama said.
