Second round of the PGA Championship to continue Saturday

  • Tiger Woods was joined by Rory Mc Ilroy and Justin Thomas for the first round

McIlroy's birdie on the par-five eighth was his first since his fourth hole on Thursday and he also chipped in on the 14th after flying the green with his approach.

Johnson and Belgium's Pieters are level with Schwartzel after carding 66s.

Those birdies after his big blunder stood out to Finau, one of only 11 players to make the cut in all four majors this year.

The 42-year-old American, who hasn't won a major title since the 2008 US Open and hasn't won any event in five years, sank a 14-foot birdie putt at the second, a five-footer to birdie the par-3 third and a 10-foot birdie putt at the fifth hole, then dropped in a 15-footer to salvage par after finding a bunker at the par-3 sixth.

"I feel safe where my game is", Woodland said.

Defending champion Justin Thomas stayed in the game, and so did Tiger Woods. I was hitting a lot of drivers.

Woods got up-and-down from 69 yards for birdie on the par-5 eighth when he resumed, but his momentum was slowed at the start of the back nine when he twice missed par putts from about 5 feet, sandwiched around a birdie.

"It was a little cut 3 wood back into the wind", Woodland said.

Trump's new tariffs on Turkey are actually benefiting Russian Federation
Berat Albayrak , the Treasury minister and Mr Erdogan's son-in-law, is due to announce a "new economic model" for Turkey... As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before. "Don't heed them", Erdogan said.

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and former Masters victor Charl Schwartzel each shot 63, which matches the lowest score in tournament history, one that had been shot 14 times. "Get in the fairway, the greens are still soft enough that you can still attack. There's not a single putt out here that you're afraid of".

Woodland had a four-under 66 and set the PGA Championship record with a 36-hole score of 130.

Kisner shot 29 on the back nine - his first nine - and was threatening to shoot a tournament-record 62 but bogeyed the final hole and settled for 64.

"I did not have my best stuff and hit one green in the last six holes but played them in two under".

"I was just trying to make the thing, and I really thought I made it", Koepka said. Mickelson is still expected to be one of captain Jim Furyk's four at-large picks, with three coming on September 4 and the final one coming on September 10.

"I feel like we're in a good spot", Fowler said.

Playing with - and likely auditioning for Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk - Finau began with five straight birdies before posting a triple bogey on No. 6.

He had three more birdies on the back nine, finished with a bogey and it added to a 66.
