Rod Pampling does a 'Happy Gilmore' at the PGA Championship

  • Phil Mickelson of the United States plays his shot from the 12th tee during the second round of the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club

Kevin Kisner, who shared the first round lead with Thorbjorn Olesen with 67 each, pulled ahead on Friday morning as scoring continued to be tough at Quail Hollow, a regular venue on PGA Tour, but hosting a Major for the first time.

"Probably the pressure had something to do with it, being in the last group in a major tournament", said Matsuyama.

Pampling had some fun giving his playing partners Thomas Pieters and Xander Schauffele, who were both likely to miss the cut as well, the choice to finish their rounds by channeling famous movie character Happy Gilmore for his approach to the swing.

Graham DeLaet gave everyone a show at the US PGA Championship as he went on a remarkable run on the back nine.

Jordan Spieth's bid for a career Grand Slam is beginning to slip away.

He said in 1999 that he wouldn't return to the U.S. Open and had "had it with the USGA and the way they run their tournaments" after he swatted a moving ball with his putter on No. 8 in his final round at Pinehurst No. 2, taking an 11 on the hole and signing for an 81.

On Friday, Phil Mickelson shot a 74 to finish 11-over par for his two rounds at the PGA Championship. "And yeah, I have a lot of opportunities". "I've always played other sports throughout my life and I've never been the biggest guy, so I had to find a way to get things done". The PGA Championship victor at Whistling Straits two years ago shot a 66 and was two shots behind. I'm not doing the right things on the course. Then again, he had a rather boring finish that allowed him to salvage a 73 and leaves him only one shot behind as he tries to bring Japan its first major championship. I've played mini-tours, learned how to win there; played the Web.com Tour, learned how to win there; got to the PGA Tour, learned how to win there.

It's easy to forget that Rory is still just 28-years-old, and I have no doubt he'll improve as he matures. "But I've just got to focus on just trying to control what I can do out there".

DeLaet, who has never won a professional tournament on American soil, almost had a hole-in-one on the par-4 14th hole, driving the ball eight feet past the hole.

Quail Hollow, so frightening on Thursday and the early part of Friday, suddenly looked vulnerable. Yet, after going to three-over a couple of times, I am very happy with the way I finished with two birdies on seventh and ninth and a very short miss on eighth in between. I think players spend too much work into figuring out golf courses, instead of just getting the ball in the hole. "Because I would love to have him on the team".

Then Kisner closed with another bogey. I'm going to respect it.

"Hopefully it doesn't happen [at Quail Hollow]".
