DeLaet goes on spectacular four-hole run at US PGA

  • Olesen Kisner grab first-round lead at US PGA Championship

Both men opened with 70 on Thursday.

Playing in the final group and four strokes off the lead, Day pushed his tee shot on Quail Hollow's lengthy par-4 closing hole into the trees on the right side. Lahiri followed up his 72 with a 73 that gave him a total of three-over 145 and the tied-43rd place as Hideki Matsuyama and Kevin Kisner, share the lead at eighth-under 134. He finished his second round with just one birdie to three bogeys.

"I didn't make the putts I've been making the first two days and just bad finish there".

Matsuyama made the big charge on Friday by shooting a 64.

He is tied with American Kevin Kisner on eight-under par and the duo are two shots clear of third-placed Jason Day.

Day, the former world No. 1, had fought doggedly on the back nine to haul himself back into contention. He is looking to win his first major, but he has finished in the top 15 of his last four majors.

"I would really like it if he wins because he's really paid his dues now".

'It's not like I'm hitting the ball crooked, I'm just hitting it in the wrong spots, ' Mickelson said after taking until his 31st hole of the week to register a birdie. But I've been working hard and seeing a lot of good things and I know the golf course. "But take him out of the equation, I feel like I'm still right there in the tournament".

An 11-year PGA Tour veteran, the 35-year-old Stroud had played in 288 PGA Tour events, but had never won until capturing the Barracuda Championship last Sunday.

Long after 25th-ranked Kisner reached the clubhouse with his second consecutive 67, players once fearful of lightning-fast greens attacked the dampened putting surfaces after the delay and soared up the leaderboard. It's a major and like I said it's a tough venue. "The key around here is keeping the ball out of the fairway". He barely missed a birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have given him sole possession of the lead.

Marc Leishman had an even-par 71 highlighted by an eagle at the par-five 10th hole.

Matsuyama fired seven birdies, including five in the back-nine, to charge ahead following a flawless second round. He closed with back-to-back pars.

What's interesting about Stroud is that for as middling as his 13-year professional golf career has been, he first landed on the PGA Tour 11 years ago. His lone slip-up came when he took four strokes on the par-three 13th. Thomas bogeyed three of his first five holes, Koepka birdied his first two and, well, that was that.

Louis Oosthuizen (5 under): Oosthuizen is a wild card for me.

The same could also be said of Open champion Jordan Spieth, who had already admitted his bid to become the youngest victor of the career grand slam was effectively over.
