PGA Championship: Who is Chris Stroud?

Phil Mickelson of the United States plays his shot from the 12th tee during the second round of the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club

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.

Another American, Justin Thomas, made a two-under 69 to tie for fourth alongside South Africa's Louis Oosthuizen who shot 71.

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

Robert Streb (Chickasha native): Shot a 1-under par 70, and is tied for 31st at 2-over 144 for 36 holes.

"I didn't expect it to be down there", he said with a degree of understatement.

"US Open Sunday, I was out of it, but I gathered a little something off that Sunday round that led to two wins and two tournaments after that including a major".

Once again, just as it was in the first two rounds, it was a shaky start.

The win gave Stroud an automatic entry into the PGA Championship and a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour. "If I shoot two 67s over the weekend, I'm going to have a really good chance", McIlroy said.

United Kingdom tries to counter claims it's unprepared for Brexit talks
The two leading politicians said the government wanted to ensure "there will not be a cliff-edge when we leave the EU". The UK formally triggered the Brexit process on March 29 and divorce negotiations officially began on June 19.

"The way my game's progressed over my career, I like where I am, and I like having a chance tomorrow". With Sergio Garcia's popular victory at the Masters earlier this year, Fowler has in some minds inherited the dreaded title of "Best Golfer To Never Win A Major" - although Japan's Hideki Matsuyama is another strong contender for that moniker and another strong contender this weekend. So I hit a six iron and just said, "okay, I'll bounce it up the cart path and see where this goes".

But by parring the brutally-difficult final three holes, known as the "Green Mile" with water lurking, he stayed very much in contention.

"But I haven't been spot-on all week, and the worries I had about my swing showed up today in the way I played".

The Australian sent his ball into the bushes when attempting a risky recovery shot around a tree that was only two yards from the ball which led to him carding a quadruple-bogey eight.

During his first three or four years on tour, he would get mad at himself when he didn't play well.

"Didn't do anything great today but I didn't do anything bad".

A shell-shocked Day, usually accomodating with the media, walked off hand-in-hand with wife Ellie without taking questions. 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 24-year-old American has been attempting to become the youngest player to complete a Grand Slam of majors this week, but he was unable to mount a charge up the leaderboard as he remained at three over for the tournament.
