US PGA co-leader Kisner comfortable at Quail Hollow

US PGA co-leader Kisner comfortable at Quail Hollow

Thorbjorn Olesen stopped using his given first name in school because there were other classmates also named Jacob.

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama joined American Kevin Kisner at the top of the leaderboard at the rain-delayed PGA Championship with a new course second round of seven-under-par 64 following a thunderstorm delay of almost two hours.

US Open champion Brooks Koepka led five players at 68.

In a striking similarity to his first round, Lahiri once again made his recovery on the back nine despite missed putts after rather disappointing front nines.

The grouping of Phil Mickelson, Jason Dufner and Jimmy Walker combined to shoot 23 over par during the first two rounds.

Man Utd's £40m Matic transfer was not Conte's decision
We'll have a game plan and I'm sure we'll have the same game-plan regardless of whoever plays up front". I would have stayed for my teammates but I want a leading role and I am in the right place to have it".


"I've been upset with how I've played in the majors so far in my career", he said. "So that's kind of been my game plan".

Fast, unforgiving putting surfaces were a major reason for the high scores.

Day, who won the PGA Championship in 2015 and finished runner-up previous year, struggled early with three dropped shots through 13 holes before rallying with two birdies and an eagle.

Fox said the long and demanding course at Quail Hollow suited his game and with some bad weather around, he wouldn't be too disappointed if things got a bit heavy. It has also been fortified with thick rough on the outskirts of fairways. "I can't count them all", said the guy who shot 64.

"The greens are so firm, you can't control your spin. We haven't played well in them yet this year but every year you learn more about the majors and how to approach them". "That's already set. It's more so in between the ears, making sure I make the right decisions and not get ahead of myself". I'm not real focused out there. "As I said, I still feel I'm right there in the tournament".

It's Game Night for Kansas City Chiefs Football
There's something about 49ers head coaches and their attire that recently has attracted the attention of Niner Nation. CHIEFS 10, 49ers 9 - Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs on a 6-play, 36-yard drive to set up a field goal by Sam Ficken.


The big-hitting Kiwi, who averaged 330 yards off the tee, birdied two of the three par-fives and was unlucky not to have eagled the short par-five seventh, after hitting his second from 205 yards to 5 feet but then watching the putt slide by.

"On the range I'm having some of the best sessions, swinging the club fine, hitting it pretty good and yet I'm not controlling my thought process out there".

With most of his putts from inside 10 feet refusing to drop on both days, Lahiri took his total to three-over 145 and was Tied 46th place. But after a scorching second round (he shot a five-under 66 to reach six under) he's hot on the heels of the leaders. He has been consistent with seven straight made cuts that include a pair of top-five finishes early in that stretch and a tie for 10th Sunday in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

The rain delay, which started just after 16:30 local time (20:30 GMT), lasted almost two hours. "I had a good week in France, but besides that, I haven't really had the results".

"I was hitting the ball OK but my scrambling was woeful", he said. His shot was a attractive, low-hanging drive, skipping off of the top of the hill and bouncing over the bunkers. You have to be good off the tee and I've done that. "That's why I play golf now because I was better than everybody else at golf".

Gary Neville: 'Chelsea boss Antonio Conte not happy with Nemanja Matic sale'
He added: "I don't think he [Klopp] has made enough signings to challenge in the big two competitions next season". He's a very select player who's a top, top striker, but when the position goes so far it's hard to put it back.
