"I said, 'Listen, I'll give you a beer tonight - just get it down there so that we can go, '" Oosthuizen said.

"He made every putt around 20 feet, and was seven under after nine", Phelps said.

Third-ranked Matsuyama, trying to become the first Japanese man to win a major title, and 25th-ranked American Kisner, who won his second United States tour title in May at Colonial, still shared the second-round lead on eight-under par 134. On the par-5 15th hole, he put his approach shot to within 12 feet.

He was two shots behind, along with Jason Day.

Instead, Mickelson's brother Tim was alongside him at Quail Hollow.

Phelps saw much that he liked when Spieth, who started on the course's more hard back nine, completed his first nine at par despite fighting his putter.

Olesen, 27, has won four times on the European Tour.

"What has surprised me is this is not the Quail Hollow we have gotten to know over the last ten years".

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - While waiting for Jordan Spieth, Sergio Garcia and Brooks Koepka to tee off Thursday in the 8:25 a.m. marquee grouping of 2017 major champions, Chip Shots glanced to his left and saw a familiar figure. Day was joined by Chris Stroud at two strokes back.

Rod Pampling hits terrible tee shot, becomes hero at PGA Championship
So rather than wait for the horn to blow to play one hole Saturday morning and be cut, Pampling chose to take one for the team. He said: "On 17 I was off the green and we were talking about if we can get a tee shot on 18, we could finish the round".

He explained that during Spieth's trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, before the British Open, where the photograph that Greller referred to was taken, Phelps and a few of his friends played a round at El Dorado Golf Club against Spieth and a few of his friends.

And then he headed to the par-3 17th, which played only 177 yards because of the front pin tucked over the bunker.

Marc Leishman chipped in from 85 feet from the back of the green for an eagle on the par 5 10th hole on Saturday.

Further back, the hopes of championship favourite Rory McIlroy and Grand Slam seeker Jordan Spieth are hanging by a thread, 10 and 11 strokes behind respectively. Perhaps Spieth will play himself back into it and get that fourth major. He is 2-under after shooting a 1-under 70 Friday.

Spieth, attempting to become the youngest to win a career grand slam of majors, was well off his game requiring 32 putts - with three birdies and four bogeys - while McIlroy had four birdies, three bogeys and a double in an unlikely round.

None of the three Met-area club pros was able to turn the PGA Championship into a magical week.

Now he gets two more rounds at Quail Hollow.

"I hit the ball even better than yesterday (the first round), but again I had a start where I missed a 3-4 footer for par and began with a bogey".

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama carded a 1-under-par 70 on Thursday to sit three shots off the lead after the first round of the PGA Championship, the last of the men's four major golf tournaments of the season. It might seem like a lot the way Matsuyama and Kisner are playing, but it doesn't to Thomas.
