Matsuyama, Day make moves before play suspended at US PGA

Rory Mc Ilroy of Northern Ireland reacts to his putt on the 12th hole during the second round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at the Quail Hollow Club Friday Aug. 11 2017 in Charlotte N.C

He's now 5 over for the tournament and 13 shots back of the leaders.

He started with an errant tee shot into deep rough. Then four-putted from 50 feet. Since 1983 - when such records were first kept - four players have won a TOUR event despite suffering a quadruple bogey at some point during the week.

It did not develop cruelty; it was born that way.

The 16th, 17th and 18th holes at Quail Hollow are regarded as among the hardest three-hole stretch in golf, right up there with the 10th-12th at Augusta National Golf Club and the 8th-10th at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

Speaking of Quail Hollow, the course seems to suit Woodland. The world's best players are a combined 5,899 above par.

Quail Hollow is considered a bomber's course, a place where being long off the tee is the key to victory. He had only once missed two cuts at majors in the same year before 2016 - at the U.S. Open and Open in 2007.

Australian golfer Rod Pampling took one for the boys in his final hole at this year's PGA Championship after firing off a wayward tee shot in fading light to ensure his group wouldn't have to return in the morning to finish their round.

Stroud said he had "1,400 text messages, 55 voicemails and probably another 100 emails". "For some reason, 18's playing way longer". I told them I will go putt and tee off and we will finish from there. "I'm just hitting it in the wrong spots". "And yet I'm not controlling my thought process out there".

"I'm happy I'm in the position I'm in", Kisner said.

"They were really fast, then after the rain I left a couple short right in the middle", Johnson said.

Despite that, Kisner could capture the title in just his 12th major start.

Jason Day can attest to that.

Guam Fires Off 'Imminent Missile Threat' Doc Amid North Korea's Threat
Guam's Office of Civil Defense began disseminating fact sheets Friday to help residents prepare for a North Korea missile attack. "Do not use conditioner in your hair because it will bind radioactive material to your hair", it continues.

But mental errors led to a double bogey at the 16th where he went into the water, and by the time he had the ball into the cup, it was a double. "You've got to, you can't limp in".

Oosthuizen, who is at 5 under, was thankful for the opportunity to finish and get some extra shuteye to focus on the final 36 holes.

But two consecutive bogeys on the 11th and 12th holes derailed his late good work.

Unfortunately for him, the ball hit a cart path.

"The chalk says Matsuyama", said Frank Nobilo. But even on the soft, rain-soaked fairways here that have made distance even more important because there is so little roll, Kisner has used his driver differently and with a precise plan that could not have worked better.

He was 10 shots behind going into the weekend. Ernie Els, who might be playing his final PGA, matched his worst score in the championship with an 80.

If the closing stretch taught him something, it was to prepare for anything. It's the balance of aggressiveness versus caution.

"It's not a factor when I'm out on the course, but it's a factor off the course in terms of how much time I can practice", said McIlroy.

Billy Horschel, at 2 over, is too far out to make a charge. Casey played the final three holes in 4 over and shot 74. In essence, Horschel is a 1 percenter. He just doesn't like what he sees in his rearview mirror, where the players are a lot closer than they once appeared. "Even out here today, the idea was to not think so much about it, not grind so much". I made every cut up to the British. Pin's front left, very accessible, and just sort of want to go at it. "So understanding what a good shot is and what a bad shot is". Anything less ... well, game on. He said anyone who broke 70 was going great. When things got tough, Bock had to take side jobs to make ends meet, sweeping floors and delivering doors among them.

That's a shame for those who only have weekend tickets to the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club, but it was unavoidable given how badly Mickelson played in this tournament.

Spieth conceded he faces a massive task just to complete a career grand slam after seeing his chance to become the youngest to do so disappear. Stroud, eight-under after 16, bogeyed the 17th and 18th to fall to six-under.

Fourteen years ago, David Toms supplied both on the 18th green. Someone else will gladly accept the same fate Sunday.
