A glance at the third round of the PGA Championship

What's wrong with Rory McIlroy? Not as much as you might think

I was quite happy with my play, which was solid, but the scoring should have been a lot better in the first round of the PGA Championships at Quail Hollow.

Ultimately he is even-par through three rounds, seven behind the outright leader Kisner, and nearly certainly out of the picture.

The five included rookie Grayson Murray, whose win at Barbasol two weeks ago in the same week as the British Open, earned him a PGA spot.

Day began the stretch at the par-four 16th with his third successive birdie to reach five-under but danger was just around the corner. He already has two World Golf Championships title and 14 victories around the world, six of them in the last 10 months. "I have to play great but we're only halfway through". Kisner has a ton of company just behind him.

The 2015 US PGA Championship victor plummeted to a share of 16th at even-par, seven shots back of leader Kevin Kisner.

Par-5, 494-yard No. 18: Not everyone experienced Day's nightmare finish, but Quail Hollow's finishing hole - water left, thick trees right - spoiled several scorecards.

The 29-year-old Australian hit his second shot into a shrub and had to take a penalty drop en route to a crippling quadruple-bogey eight. That's what I grew up practicing and playing, to play on the PGA Tour and to have a chance in major championships. "I haven't hit it this well this whole summer".


Day hasn't won since The Players Championship last May, back when he was No. 1 in the world by such a margin that he stayed at the top of the ranking the rest of the year without winning. "This is my first experience leading a major, or tied for the lead after 36 holes", Matsuyama said.

Francesco Molinari also shot 64 and was three shots behind, along with Louis Oosthuizen (67). I don't really know what I'm getting on Sunday.

Day declined to explain it to media after his round but Nick Faldo, the multiple major champion and broadcaster, called it "one of the worst decisions I've seen a professional golfer make".

Moments after almost carding a hole-in-one on the par-3 13th, Canadian Graham DeLaet almost had a hole-in-one on the par-4 14th hole. Find out all that and more on Saturday and Sunday at Quail Hollow.

Peter Uihlein (OSU): Uihlein shot his second consecutive 3-over 74 and is tied for 78th at 6-over 148, one shot short of making the projected cut of 5-over 147.

"That's what Tiger did so well", said Thomas. It's about managing it around here, trying to get it around.

Day, always one of the most accommodating players in the game with his time, seemed to be in shock after his round and declined to do any interviews. What I did [Saturday] was definitely a confidence boost'. Unfortunately for him this is not a team exhibition event with nothing but his nation's pride on the line.
