Rod Pampling took one for the boys at the end of the day two of the PGA Championship.

Those three will play together Saturday in the final grouping of the day, with a 2 p.m. ET tee time.

Seven players, Rickie Fowler among them, are at 2 under, and 10 more, including world No. 1 Dustin Johnson, Hideki Matsuyama and 2015 PGA victor Jason Day, are 1 under. He has gained an average of 7.11 strokes on the field with his putting, according to the Golf Channel's statistical guru Justin Ray. "That's my plan. Other than that, I'm playing for par". "I played even par after the delay and that's not very good in my opinion on those holes that we had left".

Kisner and Matsuyama were the co-leaders at 8 under after two rounds.

A thunderstorm that halted play for almost an hour and 45 minutes came after Matsuyama had made three consecutive birdies starting at the 12th hole, but he took advantage of wet conditions when play resumed and added birdies at the par-5 15th and par-3 17th.

Day opened his account with a birdie on the second hole before dropping a shot immediately after.

Kevin Kisner holds a one-stroke lead halfway through the third round of the PGA Championship.

Kisner, ranked 25th, birdied three holes in a row on the front nine.

Day was halted three shots off the lead in round two.

However, Danny Welbeck levelled up before the interval, but Vardy grabbed his second minutes after the break. Even people will say we conceded three goals , yes, but we scored four as well and the game was of quality.


"If they get about a foot faster, they are kind of unplayable with the pin placements", Koepka said. "He's on the range every single night beating balls. But he wants it". Chris Stroud picked up a birdie on the par-5 seventh and completed another 3-under 68 to inch closer to the lead.

Francesco Molinari (64) joined last week's WGC-Bridgestone victor Matsuyama in firing the lowest round of the tournament to share fourth place alongside 2010 British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen and American Chris Stroud (13 holes) at five-under.

Molinari soared up the standings with a round of 64 Friday after struggling to a 73 in the opening round.

Kisner is all about grit and a sharp short game. But he followed a first-round 70 with a 75 on Friday to fall back in the pack.

Simpson directed much of his concern to the hard finishing hole, which measured 477 yards in the third round but included a pin tucked six yards onto the green and four yards from the left edge. But he has won twice in US PGA Tour events at Quail Hollow, losing a third in a playoff.

Jordan Spieth, victor of the British Open, and two-time PGA champ Rory McIlroy turned in 1-over 72s.

Spieth, 24, is seeking to become the youngest golfer to win a career grand slam.

Phelps, an avid golfer, struck up a friendship with Spieth previous year in Phoenix through their mutual sponsor, Under Armour.

"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", he said after a one-birdie 73. "That's what can happen on this golf course".
