PGA Championship leaderboard breakdown: Round 2 coverage, scores

Jordan Spieth right celebrates with caddie Michael Greller after Spieth holed a bunker shot on a playoff hole on the 18th hole to win the Travelers Championship golf tournament Sunday June 25 in Cromwell

"I've had some good rounds in majors, and I feel like I've learned a lot over the years playing quite a few majors now", Olesen said.

While world No.3 Hideki Matsuyama fired a stunning seven-under-par 64 to share the lead at eight-under with American Kevin Kisner (67), Day carded a gutsy 66 to claim outright third at six-under.

It'll take another such round for Thomas, a four-time PGA Tour victor to bring home his first major championship trophy on Sunday, he said. I'm having a tough time visualizing the shot.

"The first 15 holes, especially, I was driving the ball very, very well and that made it a bit easier", said the world No. 78, a four-time European Tour victor.

He bogeyed the 11th but two more birdies earned Day his equal-lowest round relative to par at the majors in 2017.

She's got a connection to the course, too, in that her uncle, Mike Ritchie, helped complete renovations at Quail Hollow back in 1997.

Day, who won the PGA Championship in 2015 and finished runner-up past year, struggled early with three dropped shots through 13 holes before rallying with two birdies and an eagle.

All eyes this week are also on Jordan Spieth, who is chasing golf's Grand Slam, but he finished alongside McIlroy on one over par after his first round.

He had lost none of his momentum when he returned to the fairways after sinking another couple of birdies, with a missed opportunity on the last costing him the chance to take the outright lead.

Soft fairways and rock-hard, ultra-fast greens yielded some major casualties, none more so than five-time Major victor Phil Mickelson, whose 79 was his highest score in 95 rounds at the PGA Championship.

"That's what can happen on this golf course, when you play safe into the greens, you give yourself very tricky putts, like the one I had, downhill, left-to-right". Coupled with the fact that I hit the ball above the hole most of the time.

Even though Brooks Koepka shot 68, and is one shot off the lead, this year's U.S. Open champ said he wasn't exactly comfortable on the greens.

He finished with six birdies in all. But if they are not playing from the fairway, I wouldn't want to be doing it. ...

"It just wasn't my day out there so I was just trying to limit the damage in the end".

"I was hitting the ball OK but my scrambling was woeful", he said. "I got my arse kicked a little bit yesterday on my back nine".
