Kisner one ahead of Matsuyama and Stroud at PGA

Kisner one ahead of Matsuyama and Stroud at PGA

Three of the top six players on the leaderboard - Kevin Kisner, Jason Day and Francesco Molinari - made eagle on Friday, as did 54-year-old Vijay Singh. Both men opened with 70 on Thursday.

World No. 3 Matsuyama, coming off a World Golf Championships victory last week at Akron, fired a bogey-free seven-under par 64 to match Kisner at eight-under 134 for 36 holes at Quail Hollow in the year's final major tournament.

American hopeful Kisner was tied for the lead after the first round, and a second consecutive four-under-par 67 saw him move four shots clear of Gary Woodland, who had completed two holes, and Thorbjorn Olesen, who had not yet begun his second round.

Kevin Kisner survived a poor finish to limp in with a one-stroke lead over Hideki Matsuyama and Chris Stroud as the third round of the PGA Championship turned into a battle of attrition on Saturday.

Lahiri missed three putts inside 10 feet and one of them, on the first was inside four feet.

Graeme McDowell could manage only a five-over 76 and on seven-over overall he was having a weekend off, as was Padraig Harrington who was two-over through nine holes for his second round, but 10-over for the tournament.

Trump again cites 'military' option against North Korea
North Korea has lashed back at the USA following President Donald Trump's latest warnings. DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

With his eagles book-ended by birdies at the 13th and 16th, DeLaet is six-under over his past four holes, two-under for the championship. He had sent his tee shot into left rough at the par-5 15th when the horn sounded halting play.

Kisner was cruising around the course comfortably through the first 15 holes, but a hook into the water on the par-4 16th hole led to a double-bogey. "It's just unfortunate because I was actually in a rhythm and the momentum was going my way and we got called off".

The threat of lightning in North Carolina meant play was disrupted for nearly two hours, but Matsuyama managed to pick up from where he left off at the 15th hole and eventually drew level with American Kisner, who managed to complete his round before the weather took a turn for the worse. "The bad shots are working out and the good shots are working out and I'm making a lot of putts".

"I think I'm playing well".

The second-round effort by the Farmington resident who grew up playing Oakridge Country Club vaulted him into a tie with Lehi's Tony Finau for 23rd place at 1-over par heading into Saturday's third round. After firing a one-over 72 in round one, he shot a two-over 73 in round two to fall back to three over. "I hope he slows down and gives the rest of us a chance". I said, 'OK, I'll bounce it up and see where it goes.' Luckily it got out of the bunker and on to the other side.

"I'd have to say my putting has really saved me", Matsuyama said through a translator.
