Kisner, Matsuyama lead in a wide-open PGA

Stricker: Mickelson needs to 'show me something' to earn spot on Presidents Cup team

What's wrong with Rory McIlroy? Not as much as you might think.

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.

A solitary missed cut in 2011 preceded a five-year streak where he never finished worse than T-10 at the course, notching another win and a T-2 in the process.

Daly went from contender to curmudgeon after a triple bogey on the 18th hole capped an eventful 24-hour period at the PGA Championship that included singing a Prince song onstage with Darius Rucker.

Among those who failed to take advantage was Jordan Spieth, who looks like he'll have to wait another year to try to complete the career Grand Slam. "I feel so lucky and so privileged to play on a course like this". He has a win and two other top-25s at the U.S. Open.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP) " Jason Day remembers hustling to finish rounds of golf in the dark as a kid.

After his 74 Friday left him at 11-over par for the tournament, Mickelson said he had played "atrocious" golf at both the British Open in July and this week at the PGA. "I missed a lot of putts, including two very small ones".

Usher was in hotel on night woman said he had sex
In a report from TMZ , a supposed employee at the hotel says that Usher did indeed make his way to the hotel to meet Sharpton. Last week, TMZ reported that Usher told his inner circle that he didn't have sex with Quantasia because she's not his type.


"It was really the only option I had", McIlroy said. "I have to play great but we're only halfway through". One also one needs to score off the par-fives because you are not going to get too many chances.

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.
