Graham DeLaet opens PGA Championship with one-under 70

Graham DeLaet opens PGA Championship with one-under 70”

Though defending champ Jimmy Walker will undoubtedly miss the cut - the line won't be finalized until second-round play is finished on Saturday - he had a 10-shot improvement from Round 1 to Round 2 with a 69 on Friday.

"As a whole", Monahan said, "there are a lot of players who are very happy with the FedEx Cup schedule and our entire season". I think it's quite a big difference. "Obviously to be able to finish and not have to wake up at 5:30 tomorrow, get some rest, because it is hot out there and it does take it out of you.it really does (feel great) to be able to get that extra sleep and relax a little bit in the afternoon".

Finishing at twilight, Day shot 5-under 66 and looked to be in the form he had in 2015 when he won the PGA Championship. "A low round now is a 66 or a 67". You've got to stay patient.

"It's a completely different golf course", McIlroy said.

"It's not easy to make up shots on this course, and if I'd been another two back it would have made things a lot more hard".

"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.

It started out of the gate at the par-5 10th, his first, when after an errant drive he found himself way right with his second and having to bounce his ball along a cart path to reach the edge of the green. "I'm not really focused out there".

"I don't feel like I did two years ago where I'm searching for my game or trying to find it or trying to strike it well".

First-round co-leader Thorbjorn Olesen has recorded top-10 finishes in a Masters and a British Open and played a number of PGA tournaments.

"I do have to look at the positives as the golf I played was more than good enough to win any tournament". "I have no excuses other than I just wasn't ready to play". (It's) always fun to play against the best guys, like the majors, the WGCs and the big PGA Tour events. You have December off, but you want to spend time with family, have a nice Christmas, Thanksgiving, whatever else.

"It was a little bit of a safe shot into the green", he said. It was unfortunate to stumble coming in.

That lone silver lining in an otherwise hard round will give Woodland, the 44-ranked player in the world, some measure of confidence going into the weekend as he seeks his first major victory.

"It's there", said Rickie Fowler, who shot a 70 on Friday and is 3 under for the week.

Kisner spent Friday scouting Oakmont for the upcoming U.S. Open, and he tweeted over the weekend that he was prepping for his next two starts by practicing at nearby Sage Valley Golf Club. Founded in 1892, Palmetto lists itself as the second-oldest golf club in the USA behind only Chicago Golf Club.

Bevacqua shared the dais with the PGA Tour commissioner, Jay Monahan, who announced that the Players Championship, which has been held in May since 2007, would return to its March date in 2019 - a move that "will greatly enhance the golf calendar", he said.
