Matsuyama feels pressure as he eyes major for Japan

McIlroy considering time off McIlroy 'looking forward to 2018' after US PGA flop
Nicole Thomas | 13 August, 2017, 10:39

Third-ranked Matsuyama, trying to become the first Japanese man to win a major title, and 25th-ranked American Kisner, who won his second U.S. tour title in May at Colonial, still shared the second-round lead on eight-under par 134.

"Probably the pressure had something to do with it, being in the last group in a major tournament", said Matsuyama. I could and should have finished at least in the under-par zone. Thomas was 2 under on the back nine with birdies at 10 and 15 and a routine par at 18, which produced a scoring average of 4.6 Saturday and played as the most hard hole. Moody had three birdies in his second round to go along with nine pars and three bogeys.

"But I haven't been spot on all week".

"With the way I've been playing, how I'm swinging this week and last week going into it, I know I can win this week", Fowler said. "I hit 3-wood and I hit it right at the flag".

After hitting only three fairways in the opening round of his first PGA Championship - and first pro event on American soil - shooting a 75, Fox kept the ball in play Friday and it paid off in a big way.

He made his par putt on the 17th hole and then sprinted to the 18th tee and promptly knocked his tee shot down the middle.

Johnson struggled with Quail Hollow's fast, firm and undulating Champion Bermudagrass greens that were redone in 2016. "The only option I had", he said. "I'm just trying to get it up near the hole, and a lot of them are going in".

According to him, the humanitarian coordinator is, however, working closely with the Government of Nigeria to resolve this issue. The clearance operations effort has been yielding several successes.

McGirt, who teed off at 1:10 p.m. Friday, completed 11 holes before the horn sounded while he was preparing for a putt on the par-4 third hole.

After a rain delay Friday afternoon softened the course and created prime scoring conditions, Spieth played even par once play resumed. Kisner surprised the field with his six birdies and only two bogeys on Thurday's round.

McIlroy managed to muster back-to-back birdies at the seventh and eighth (his 16th and 17th) to get back to two over and alleviate the threat of missing the cut, but he has plenty of work to do.

The 24-year-old American has been attempting to become the youngest player to complete a Grand Slam of majors this week, but he was unable to mount a charge up the leaderboard as he remained at three over for the tournament.

McGirt will stay in the Tar Heel state for next week's Wyndham Championship in Greensboro at Sedgefield Country Club.

Highlights of the third round of the 99th PGA Championship at Quail Hollow on Saturday: Course yielding plenty of birdies Long-hitting American J.B. Holmes, a victor of the PGA Tour event here previous year, is five-under on his round through 10 holes. With Sergio Garcia's popular victory at the Masters earlier this year, Fowler has in some minds inherited the dreaded title of "Best Golfer To Never Win A Major" - although Japan's Hideki Matsuyama is another strong contender for that moniker and another strong contender this weekend.
