Dustin Johnson on his key to competing at PGA Championship

Fowler says he feels comfortable at Quail Hollow Fowler says he feels comfortable at Quail Hollow

His drive at the 301-yard 14th hits the hole for what would have been a rare albatross at a par-four.

Rather than chipping out to the fairway and settling for bogey, Day attempted to sail an iron shot up and around trees, over a cart path.

Pampling finished his final hole with a double-bogey as a result moving his second round score to 79, leaving him tied for 136th. Two birdies (12th and 18th holes) helped him finish the day at 72 which takes his 36-hole total to three-over 145.

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.

Day - US PGA victor in 2015 - started the day on six under putting him in the final group alongside Kisner and Matsuyama.

"I kind of accept the fact that I'm essentially out of this tournament pending some form of insane stuff the next couple of days", Spieth said. I managed to catch Rory McIlroy talking about me (on TV) coming off 18 so that's a real confidence boost that they recognise that you're doing the right sort of things. "I have to play great but we're only halfway through". He shared the lead with Kisner after an opening-round 67, struggled in the second round, recording a 78.

"I'm probably not playing as well as I did at the end of past year".


"I feel like my game truly suits the other three majors maybe more than a PGA", Spieth admitted. "I'm really fired up about it the way I'm hitting the golf ball", he said.

Based on his recent performance, it might've been a surprise that Day was even in the mix entering this weekend.

England's Paul Casey finished bogey, bogey, double bogey to drop back to level par but remains the highest placed British player.

He struck two birdies in the last three holes on a golf course that was not playing easy by any means. He closed with back-to-back pars. He is a two-time victor on the PGA Tour but has lost four play-offs for further titles, leaving some fans doubting his ability to close out the tournament.

On undulating greens, some of the hole locations were extremely hard, with nobody on the leaderboard shooting better than the 68 by Canadian Graham DeLaet, who went six-under in a remarkable four-hole stretch to vault within five strokes of the lead.

From there he wedged over the bushes in front of him, flubbed his fifth shot from deep rough so that it came up short of the green, and could not get up and down, taking an eight and a third-round 77, six-over par.

It was an awesome start, and the most excitement he delivered Friday.
