Rory McIlroy and his wonderful cart-path par

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

Charlotte, NC-Aiken's Kevin Kisner shot a second straight 67 and now sits at -8 and leading the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte.

Kisner, not a long hitter but unerringly accurate for the most part until he double-bogeyed the 16th and bogeyed the last, posted a seven-under 206 total, one stroke ahead fellow American Stroud (71) and Japan's Matsuyama (73).

A solitary missed cut in 2011 preceded a five-year streak where he never finished worse than T-10 at the course, notching another win and a T-2 in the process.

Chris Stroud is known by friends as Mr. Positivity, but even he couldn't have imagined he'd be playing in the PGA Championship this week, let alone have a chance of win it.

About Spieth's quest for a career grand slam. he's 3-over par, 11 shots behind. "I played even par after the delay and that's not very good in my opinion on those holes that we had left".

He can count on two FedEx Cup playoff events, but he'll probably have to show some form to advance through the PGA Tour's postseason and, more importantly to him, give USA captain Steve Stricker a reason to pick him for the Presidents Cup.

Mistakes are inevitable in golf, and to put it simply, McIlroy is awful at not letting them compound. A nice 14-15 foot for par steadied me and on seventh two good shots to get to around 25 feet and two-putted for par. That's basically what I said. Birdies at seven and eight banished those fears, but the result was still another one over par 72.

Senate approves bill restricting abortion insurance
The bill returns to the Senate, which can agree to House changes or seek a conference committee to negotiate over the changes. Efforts to approve a bill that would restrict bathroom access for people who are transgender have stalled in the Texas House.

The way some tell it at the PGA Championship, Kevin Kisner is one of the most tenacious competitors on the PGA Tour.

"I do remember finishing in the dark a lot when I was a kid, not thinking that it was going to be I was running down the 18th hole at a major championship", Day said. "I have to play great but we're only halfway through".

He played basketball and football as a kid, but quickly learned his best chances were in a sport where size didn't matter as much. The goal was to try and get on the PGA Tour and then from there see what happens.

"I was just trying to get it in the bunker, and luckily I hit it with enough speed, and it got up and out of there".

Quail Hollow looked vulnerable for the first time in the week. Yet, after going to three-over a few 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. "But I've got to play well in them is the thing". This is probably the easiest one I've had to prep for because I know the golf course so well and I've been up here a lot. "I feel like I have the game to compete in majors and tons of 30th- to 40th-, 50th-place finishes".

Mickelson didn't make a birdie until his 31st hole, and by then it was too late.
