PGA Championship- Round One

Mike Ehrmann

"Even if they didn't do anything else with the golf course and just changed it to full Bermuda like it is now, all of a sudden makes the golf course two shots more hard".

The 30-year-old Indian is now three- over for the tournament and Tied-50th and was sure to make the cut, which was likely at three or four-over.

Justin Thomas, who shot a five-under 66, Rickie Fowler and Paul Casey finished round two at three under. They are among the toughest finishing holes in golf.

Jason Day (77), who was in the final group, is at par 213, a stunning drop from contention with a quadruple-bogey eight on the last hole.

A handful of players still have to see out their second round on Saturday due to the delay. Earlier I had three-putted the 14th from around 25 feet.

It wasn't always pretty, but Kevin Kisner did enough Saturday to hang on to his PGA Championship lead with a 1-over 72 at Quail Hollow Club. Even with the changes that the pros hated, the golf course overall held up to a major standard easily.

Ironically it was from seventh to ninth where Lahiri recovered from a shaky start on the first day.

That's because the Aiken, S.C., native didn't have to worry about the inclement weather that suspended play on Friday afternoon at the PGA Championship. He barely missed a birdie putt on the 18th hole that would have given him sole possession of the lead.

"I had a little bit of a mini-rally at the end which I needed, but the four bogeys on the front nine (his back nine), that's just down to being out of position off the tee and not being able to get it very close with my second shot".

Solar eclipse glasses distributed by Northeast Community College are certified and safe for viewing the Monday, Aug. 21, eclipse. I've seen them at the check-out counters at Lowe's pretty cheap and they have them other places, they have them online.

On Thursday, Lahiri played solid but the scores did not reflect the same. Three-over, he still found himself at three-over after 15.

SLAMMED: Three weeks after Spieth got the third leg of the Grand Slam by winning the British Open, his putting stroke hasn't helped him at Quail Hollow. I think he finishes the job and gets his first major.

"The way my game's progressed over my career, I like where I am, and I like having a chance tomorrow". But greens are firm.

But what really hurt me was the 17th, the middle segment of the "Green Mile", which for me came in the first nine itself.

They were tied at a total of eight-under 134 after two rounds.

"I was grateful for the rain delay because I was getting exhausted".

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina-Hideki Matsuyama has broad shoulders but is not finding it easy to carry the weight of an entire nation as he seeks to become the first Japanese man to win a major.

Without making any more headway, he closed out the back nine in 35 and turned the corner where he yesterday carded -1 for his day's work.
