Rory McIlroy strings together eye-popping sequence at PGA Championship

Rory McIlroy strings together eye-popping sequence at PGA Championship

Paul Casey was among those at 69, while Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Hideki Matsuyama were in the large group at 70.

You can't particularly blame him. He is looking to win his first major, but he has finished in the top 15 of his last four majors.

Rory McIlroy saw his second shot sail toward the gallery at the PGA Championship, so he knew it would be right of the green on the par-5 10th hole at Quail Hollow.

The second round is scheduled to resume at 07:30 local time (11:30 GMT) on Saturday. "I'm pretty sure a bunch of guys are going to be hitting a six-, maybe five-iron into that hole", he said. "Getting my first win, and then being in contention a couple years ago".

"This is a very, very hard golf course right now", he said of the 7,588 yard host course, lengthened nearly 200 yards from the last time it was used for a PGA Tour event in 2015. It suits my eye. "Make a lot of pars and get to a par five or one of those short par fours, I can do my wedge game and get it to 10 or 12 feet". However, a double bogey on the tough No. 3 par-4 set him back in an otherwise solid over-par round.

At one point Friday, Fowler went over to talk to National Basketball Association star Andre Iguodola - who was following the group that included both Fowler and Rory McIlroy - while waiting to hit a shot.

It was disaster from there.

Kisner somehow birdied three of the last five holes.

Kisner rolled in a curling 21-foot birdie putt on the 18th early in the evening to tie Olesen, who posted his round in the morning.

Taking place from August 10-13, the four-round tournament featured defending champion and Boerne resident Jimmy Walker as well as former Texas Longhorn Jordan Spieth. "I'd say if I shoot two 67s over the weekend, I'm going to have a really good chance". Other than that, my frustrations were letting me down. "Hitting fairways are key".

"The greens are so firm, you can't control your spin". "There were both good and bad parts to my performance, but I think I started out well".

Soft fairways and rock-hard, ultra-fast greens yielded some major casualties, none more so than five-time Major victor Phil Mickelson, whose 79 was his highest score in 95 rounds at the PGA Championship. That's kind of been our goal for the year. "I can't count them all", said the guy who shot 64.

"No reason to waste any extra energy", Fowler said.
