Stricker: Mickelson needs to 'show me something' to earn spot on Presidents Cup team
Kevin Kisner survived a calamitous finish at the PGA Championship thanks to a good bounce off a bridge that allowed him to escape with a bogey and take a one-shot lead into the final round at Quail Hollow.
LEADERS: Matsuyama and Kisner were at 8-under 134, and this is the first time for either player to be atop the leaderboard after any round of a major.

Kisner, a US PGA Tour victor three months ago at Colonial, won his first US PGA Tour victory at Sea Island, Georgia, in 2015 in his 109th attempt. "But I felt like that's something I already knew".
"I was grateful for the rain delay because I was getting exhausted", he told the PGA Tour. I have to hit my tee ball where I'm trying to look, and if I don't, I have to find a way to get the ball in the hole the fastest. "But I've got to play well in them is the thing". Yet, after going to three-over a few times, I am very happy with the way I finished with two birdies on seventh and ninth and a very short miss on eighth in between.
Thomas struggled off the tee, hitting just six of 14 fairways (though some of those were just off the short grass) and his iron play, despite 14 greens hit, wasn't as crisp or controlled as he knows it needs to be if he's going to hoist the Wanamaker Trophy on Sunday.
DeLaet, who has never won a professional tournament on American soil, almost had a hole-in-one on the par-4 14th hole, driving the ball eight feet past the hole.
"It is frustrating to me because I'm sitting there, and I'm like, 'My game is not where it should be. I would definitely go C, more towards the C side than B side". Instead, he's heading in the opposite direction after making bogey on two of the first five holes.
