Highlights of Saturday's third round at the PGA Championship

"I'm disappointed the way I played today, however I'm happy to be one stroke back and still have a chance and looking forward to tomorrow". "I feel like I have the game to compete in majors, and tons of 30th- to 40th-, 50th-place finishes".

The 33-year-old Kisner attacked the par-five holes in second-round action, carding an eagle on the seventh and birdies on the 10th and 15th. After sinking a six-foot birdie putt at 12, Kisner gave one back with a bogey on the par-3 13th.

Barring a true miracle on Sunday, the Wanamaker Trophy won't be lifted by Jordan Spieth this year. "Other than that, I would have been just fine". "When I start hitting it the way I am now, I play well".

After a fairly creditable one-over 72 overnight, it took Lahiri 12 holes to find his first birdie in the second round and he added a second on 18th, which he played as ninth and birdied on Thursday, too.

Coming off his second World Golf Championships victory last week after shooting a record-tying final-day 61 at the Bridgestone Invitational, Matsuyama credited his improved putting for Friday's score.

Jason Day, the 2015 victor and third player in the final threesome, suffers a quadruple-bogey eight to stumble in with a 77 to tumble back to even par for the tournament. "I'm enjoying that", Kisner said.

"I was hitting the ball OK but my scrambling was woeful", he said.

Sharing fourth at five-under 137 in the clubhouse were Italy's Francesco Molinari, with a bogey-free 64, and South African Louis Oosthuizen, who shot a bogey-free 67. After a delay of 1 hour and 43 minutes, McGirt returned to birdie the par-4 fifth hole to get back in the mix at even par and 6 over for the tournament, but carded bogey on two of his final three holes to post a 2-over 73.

Chinese president says peaceful resolution needed for North Korea nuclear issue
Eddie Calvo to express his support to the US territory amid the threats of an imminent strike from North Korea. Pyongyang's media outlet said America was making "desperate efforts" to test weapons in the Korean peninsula.

The Australian, who had yesterday been three over through 13 holes of his first round at Quail Hollow before rattling home, continued the momentum to charge to outright third this morning.

McIlroy made four bogeys in five holes on the front side, capped by a par putt lip-out at sixth.

"At the end of the day, it's just golf, right?" he stated.

Meanwhile, Provo's Riverside Country Club assistant professional Chris Moody improved on his 10-over opening round with a 7-over round Friday for a total of 17-over, not good enough to stay for the weekend.

After speaking so positively ahead of the final major of the year, Spieth's challenge never left the launch pad over the first 36 holes at Quail Hollow.

Splendid run: Hideki Matsuyama took advantage of greens softened by an afternoon storm to reel off five birdies on a six-hole stretch.
