Storm stoppage halts hot runs by Day, Matsuyama at PGA

Rory Mc Ilroy managed to secure a place in this weekend's action at Quail Hollow Club

Patrick Reed (69), Gary Woodland (69), Scott Brown (70) and Francesco Molinari (74) are also at two under. The world No 25 was soon joined at the top of the leaderboard by Japanese number three Matsuyama, who carded a round of 64 despite having his stride broken by the weather.

Phil Mickelson's 100th major appearance ended with a far more disappointing statistic as the five-time major victor suffered an early exit at Quail Hollow. He parred both 17 and 18 to finish the back-nine at four-under, and three-under for the day, with a total score of minus-two heading into Sunday.

But there were others like Bryson DeChambeau who shot 72 with two eagles and two doubles, plus two birdies and three bogeys. He took a penalty stroke, chopped out and went on to make 8 for a round of 77, about which he declined to speak as he left for the parking lot with his wife Ellie.

Day then yanked his tee shot on the par-4 12th toward a cart path left of the fairway, sent his shot from that position along that same cart path and placed his third stroke to the edge of the greenside bunker.

"I like to think that I'm mature now and I can manage an under-par round when I don't have my best stuff, " Thomas said.

"I had a chance to run away from guys and take people out of the tournament who were four, five or six back and I didn't do it", Kisner said, after he ended what had been a solid round by making double bogey (with a water ball) on No. 16 and bogey on No. 18. Hideki Matsuyama almost ties for the lead but his birdie putt stops one roll short of the cup and he stands on six-under along with Chris Stroud.

He was forced to chip out and after eventually reaching the green, three-putted for an eight.

A birdie on the 15th helped McIlroy to the turn in 35, but he then bogeyed the second, third, fifth and sixth to lie outside the projected cut mark, before birdies on the seventh and eighth saw him safely through to the weekend. "I dropped it in a pretty bad lie, so I couldn't carry it over the cart path". The best he could do was hack the ball onto the green 60 or so feet from the cup. Even my par putt on seven was a good putt. He loves Bermuda, the grass now in place at Quail Hollow, and his confidence soars when he's hitting it well.

"I found a little something that I was trying [to find] out there". But I believe we can play anywhere and can win anywhere.

After sinking a 22-foot par putt at the ninth, Matsuyama began his birdie charge with a 12-foot putt at the par-4 12th and six-footers at the par-3 13th and par-4 14th. But like I said, last week just gave me an unbelievable sense of calm.

Like Matsuyama, Stroud is happy to be in the hunt.

Seventh-ranked Jason Day, the 2015 PGA Championship victor and last year's runner-up, fired a 66 to stand third on 136 and he praised Matsuyama's commitment to success.
