Fox sizzles at PGA Champs

Back spasms could sideline McIlroy until next year

Rory McIlroy

Now, it has the trappings of a shootout.

Ryan Fox, son of World Cup winning All Black, Grant, shot the lowest score of the day, a five under par 66, to close within seven of the lead.

Golf great Nick Faldo has slammed Jason Day's "crazy" decision that capped off a third-round implosion at the US PGA Championship.

McIlroy is no stranger to rallies at Quail Hollow.

That could leave the final major of the year up for grabs over the final 36 holes on the weekend, but not for everybody.

For once McIlroy had an off day with the driver, which compromised his approach shots to the greens and, averaging only 46 feet proximity to the hole, piled the pressure on the putter. And now he's not sure what it will take.

McIlroy, who trailed joint leader Kisner by five shots overnight, said he still felt "right in there" despite slipping further behind.

Matsuyama has more experience on the big stage. The 25-year-old Japanese star already was 5 under for his round in tough conditions, and he added two birdies after the rain. He loves Bermuda, the grass now in place at Quail Hollow, and his confidence soars when he's hitting it well. "It's just unfortunate because I was actually in a rhythm and the momentum was going my way and we got called off". I can't putt any worse than I did today.

Pyongyang identified three of those areas - Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi prefectures - in its statement last week. About 160,000 people live on the island, which extends about 12 miles (19.31 kilometers) at its widest.


Despite carrying pre-tournament favourite status courtesy of top-five finishes in his last two starts and a superb record at host Quail Hollow, world No.4 Rory McIlroy (73) slumped to four-over.

"To be able to change that weakness into a strength is why he's so dominant", Day said.

Phil Mickelson celebrated playing in his 100th career major, but it only last two days.

The 33-year-old from SC has won twice on the PGA Tour, and has also lost four times in playoffs.

It took Stroud 13 years and 290 PGA Tour starts before his breakthrough in Reno. "I got my arse kicked a little bit yesterday on my back nine". He made only one of them Friday. A short miss on eighth for birdie was followed by a closing birdie on ninth and that left a good taste and in a good mood for the second day.

"On to the weekend to try and fire at stuff". Play was suspended because of darkness and 26 players will come back in the morning to complete their second rounds. Omar Uresti shot a 70 and was at 2-over 144.

Long after 25th-ranked Kisner reached the clubhouse with his second consecutive 67, players once fearful of lightning-fast greens attacked the dampened putting surfaces after the delay and soared up the leaderboard.

A bogey on the tough par-4 16th, where Johnson found a right greenside bunker from 190 yards and missed an 18-foot par putt, dropped him back to even par. "There's lot of things that can happen".
