Scott struggling on day two at PGA Champs

Scott struggling on day two at PGA Champs”

But he hit two good shots green-high and got up and down for one birdie, then took an aggressive route for the second straight day at the 346-yard, par-4 eighth, where he ripped driver to within 40 yards of the green.

Other early starters in round one include Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, coming off a win last week in Akron, 2016 US Open victor Johnson, 2016 British Open victor Henrik Stenson of Sweden and 2015 PGA champion Jason Day of Australia.

Ryan Fox of New Zealand shot the best score of the week, a 5-under par 66, to end the second round at 1 under for the tournament.

"I'm walking away from this one more disappointed than any of the other ones because this one I felt I was more prepared for". He pitched up and made another short birdie putt.

Cauley has two top-five finishes this season, but he is still searching for his first-career PGA Tour win.

World No.3 Hideki Matsuyama, fresh off his win at last week's WGC-Bridgestone, fired a bogey-free round of 64 to join Kisner at the top. "It's not like I'm hitting the ball crooked, I'm just hitting it in the wrong spots". "I've always fought a push to the right and got sick and exhausted of it", he said.

Mickelson said his split with Bones hasn't caused his game to desert him, for he's hitting all the shots, after all. "I will get up early in the morning and get right back at it".

The 33-year-old from SC has won twice on the PGA Tour, and has also lost four times in playoffs. I managed to catch Rory McIlroy talking about me (on TV) coming off 18 so that's a real confidence boost that they recognise that you're doing the right sort of things.

The first round of the year's last major tournament began on the rain-softened 7,600-yard, par-71 Quail Hollow layout under cloudy skies with North Carolina host-state hopeful Grayson Murray, a PGA Tour victor three weeks ago in Alabama, striking the opening tee shot. You expect to play those holes in even or under par and if I had done that, my scorecard would gave looked very different. "Length is a key factor out here, and especially when it's as wet as it is, it makes those fairways a bit wider".

Kisner sank a 10-foot birdie putt at 10, his first hole of the day. "I'm having a tough time controlling my thoughts and not letting it wander to what I don't want to happen".

He did card one bogey on the round, but made up for it with another birdie and then an eagle hole-out from just off the front of the green on #7.

"It was tough to hole putts", McIlroy said.

"I guess a low round used to be a 61 or a 62", McIlroy said. Both Fowler and Koepka have been installed as the betting favorites by the Superbook heading into the second round of play. South Korean An Byeong-Hun also eagled the par-5 seventh in a round of 69 to finish on 140.

The Open champion will still have plenty of backers though after his win at Royal Birkdale last month - a victory that set him up for this tilt at the career Grand Slam.
