PGA Championship: Saturday's shot, hole and quote of the day

  • Dustin Johnson waves on the 15th hole during the final round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at the Quail Hollow Club Sunday Aug. 13 2017 in Charlotte N.C

Nobody wants to do that, but there's a small loophole in the rules of golf which makes it preventable: if play is suspended due to darkness, players have the option of finishing the hole they're now playing.

He was ten shots adrift of early pacesetter Kevin Kisner, but insisted: "If you take "Kiz" out of the equation I feel I'm right in there, although it will take two low rounds over the weekend for me to win from here".

Justin Thomas, the son of a PGA professional, had the right formula.

It is the first time a player on the PGA Tour has recorded back-to-back eagles since Marc Leishman last November.

The rain delay, which started just after 4:30 p.m. ET, lasted almost two hours.

"I don't think I was as free rolling as I thought I would be, as you can tell by some frustration", he said.

Robert Streb holes out for eagle from 156 yards at the par-four 12th hole.

Steve Stricker, the current Presidents Cup captain, made the PGA cut, which gives him an impressive 26 consecutive made cuts in majors. It skipped twice along the cart path with so much speed that it went into a bunker, out of a bunker and across the green until it settled in the rough on the other side.

Texan Jordan Spieth surrendered any chance of completing the career grand slam for at least 12 months, a double-bogey at the last leaving him 10 shots off the pace. "Disappointing would have been going home after two days". He looked more like Jean Van de Velde, famous for his collapse in the 1999 British Open, except that Day was standing amid bushes of flowers instead of knee deep in the burn at Carnoustie.

Only one player in PGA Tour history has a hole-in-one on a par-4. Then he hit a root on a shot with an 8-iron and bent the club, meaning he couldn't use it when he needed it late in his round. Andrew Magee did it at a Phoenix Open in 2001.

"It's the type of golf course you don't have to go out and make birdies", Oosthuizen said.

"Obviously, any week you don't have a chance to win, you've fallen short of where you would like to be, " he said.

Day began the stretch at the par-four 16th with his third successive birdie to reach five-under but danger was just around the corner. He caught a decent lie and chipped close for his first birdie.

Jason Day shot a 66 to pull two strokes behind the co-leaders.

Kisner joined them with mistakes of his own, though he managed to keep his emotions in check.

He was speaking about golf. Given the size of Quail Hollow, Kisner drew up a simple plan.
