Chris Stroud floating on cloud nine at PGA Championship

Swimmer Michael Phelps and his wife Nicole Johnson look on during the first round of the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club

Lahiri, who was tied 33rd after a 72 in the first round, struggled with his start, carding a bogey on the first hole before making five par consecutive par effort. "I was able to lay down in the locker room and get some rest", world number three Matsuyama said.

"With one birdie, it's going to be hard to post a solid round", Spieth said.

Racing fading daylight to finish his round, the 29-year-old had four straight pars to close out arguably his best day of a season marred by injury and family issues that have combined to have him ranked at world No.7.

Kisner and Matsuyama, both leading a major for the first time, were at 8-under 134.

Thomas finished the day T-4 at 5 under, two shots behind outright leader Kevin Kisner.

Virginia State Police Investigating Fatal Helicopter Crash in Albemarle County
The Virginia State Police confirmed it is investigating a helicopter crash in Albemarle County in the Charlottesville area. One person died earlier Saturday after a crowd plowed into a group of counter demonstrators in downtown Charlottesville.

It was a welcome return to form for Jason Day who has struggled this season and the 2015 victor sits in third, two shots off the lead.

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.

Rickie Fowler, still trying to get his first major, had a one-under 70 and is at three-under 139.

Day nearly landed a rare albatross on the par-five seventh hole and the resultant kick-in eagle kickstarted a run of five birdies in the next seven holes - either side of a weather delay - to enable a five-under-par round of 66 to race to six under in total.

Day shot a 6-over 77 Saturday, virtually ending his chances at winning his second major this week. "Hitting fairways are key". It features the top three golfers in the tournament. Four-over for the front nine, he was five-over for the tournament before he birdied the 12th. "Even just that - so yeah, it's a much tougher practice, and I'm not - after what I've witnessed over the past two days, no, I'm not surprised to see so many guys be over par". I probably didn't quite hit it as well off the tee as I did yesterday and wasn't putting myself in positions where I could go at a lot of pins. The horn suspended play for darkness just before his chip shot onto the 18th green.

The Northern Irishman was one under for his round and level par overall through his first 10 holes on Friday, but a run of four bogeys in five holes threatened to derail his tournament. 14 and 17 and his only bogey of the day on the 12th hole. On seventh, he went into the rough and missed regulation and on eighth he missed an eight-footer for par and on ninth he missed from just inside 10 feet.
