Fox on fire at PGA Championship

Day, who won the 2015 PGA Championship and finished runner-up to Jimmy Walker last year, is eager to strut his stuff at the majors for the first time this year.

"A low round used to be a 61 or a 62 so a low round now is a 66 or a 67", he said.

Quail Hollow, so frightening on Thursday and the early part of Friday, suddenly looked vulnerable. "I'm not surprised to see so many guys over par".

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

Some guy named Rory McIlroy went on to win. He said anyone who broke 70 was going great.

But that was before the rain.

One shot behind him were South African 2010 British Open champion Louis Oosthuizen, Italian Francesco Molinari and American Chris Stroud.

That base oversees some 20 USA and coalition naval vessels in the Gulf providing security and others running anti-piracy patrols. The F-18 took off from the USS Nimitz, a US Navy supercarrier now located in the Persian Gulf, according to Stars and Stripes.

Kisner is all about grit and a sharp short game. He has shot two rounds of 67 in the toughest conditions.

Day said looking back, he's glad they made the call to complete the round, but admitted, "thinking about it, if I went bogey, bogey I would be very devastated right now".

"On the range I'm having some of the best sessions, swinging the club fine, hitting it pretty good and yet I'm not controlling my thought process out there".

The home-state kid from nearby Raleigh playing in his first major as a professional turned in 1 over but tamed the back nine to card a 3-under 68.

After making the turn (he started on No. 10), Koepka logged four birdies and a bogey to finish at 3-under.

In a striking similarity to his first round, Lahiri once again made his recovery on the back nine despite missed putts after rather disappointing front nines.

"When we got delayed, the whole course changed with regards to how receptive it was", Day said. "And being able to combine that today, just felt like the old days - which is only a year ago". Old warhorses Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els also missed cut on their 100th Major appearance. In five PGA Tour events this year, he's missed two cuts and tied for 62nd and 63rd, but tied for 10th at last week's WGC-Bridgestone.

Man United on brink of signing Portugal's hottest talent
However, Jose Mourinho's side have been unable to make a breakthrough in negotiations with Inter over the sale of Ivan Perisic. Manchester United are on the verge of completing a deal for Oliveirense youngster Bruno Amorim, Lusa has reported.

At the ninth hole, Rod Pampling took a similar course of action but with a different result. Now, he wonders how much longer is season will last.

Spieth recalled his experience at June's U.S. Open.

Spieth, 24, is seeking to become the youngest golfer to win a career grand slam. Spieth posted just one birdie - he has just four through the first 36 holes - and never built any momentum. One lap around the course did not a victor make, but start too slow, and the prize could be lost. Greller cracked up. After the round, Spieth said he appreciated Phelps following him and keeping the mood light.

The other player in the threesome Jason Dufner must have felt a little embarrassed - he only managed a par.

Other afternoon starters include USA stars Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson, Spain's Jon Rahm and England's Justin Rose.

Matsuyama and Kisner were at 8-under 134. "There's lot of things that can happen".
