PGA Championship: Kevin Kisner clinging to one-stroke lead

Kyle Miller: Golfer with cerebral palsy makes PGA Tour history

Brooks Koepka PGA Championship

"I played nine holes with Rory on a practice day and they saw me almost hole a shot going into one of the par fives and they were chatting about me".

That slight reprieve allowed him to cling to a one-shot lead over Hideki Matsuyama and fellow American Chris Stroud going into Sunday's final round.

He struck two birdies in the last three holes on a golf course that was not playing easy by any means. After a steady four holes I missed a small five-footer for par on par-4 fifth.

"I had a chance to run away from guys and take people out of the tournament that were four or five (or) six back, and I didn't do it. That's what I'm looking to do here". "I'm going to keep it mellow and relaxed like it's been the first two days".

While the majority of the morning starters struggled with Quail Hollow's thick Bermuda rough, Kisner had no such trouble and was hot with the putter.

At the same time, Beijing will respond if the USA and South Korea strike first and try to overthrow the North Korean regime. Trump had called on Beijing in the past to exert its control over North Korea , its trading partner, on several instances.

Kisner hasn't fared well in a dozen major appearances, but that hasn't changed his attitude when it comes to vying for the biggest wins in the sport. "I had a shaky start but as the round progressed things became better". "It will be awesome to take home the Wanamaker Trophy". He is three strokes under par after rounds of 69 and 70 but knows he will be at least five strokes out of the lead starting his third round Saturday.

It wasn't always pretty, but Kevin Kisner did enough Saturday to hang on to his PGA Championship lead with a 1-over 72 at Quail Hollow Club.

When the players were forced off the course in the second round of the US PGA Championship on Friday due to the threat of lightning, Hideki Matsuyama was already putting a round together before the two hour delay, having birdied the 12th, 13th and 14th to put him just two shots behind leader Kevin Kisner. But unlike his playing partners, he avoided catastrophe on the final three holes.

He and Kisner, who earlier fired a near-flawless 67, are two strokes ahead of Australian Jason Day (66), back in form after a recent flat patch.

Matsuyama has one of the strongest overall games on the PGA Tour.

Venezuela calls US President Donald Trump military threat 'craziness'
Vice President Pence leaves next week on a trip to South America, where he will visit Colombia, Argentina, Chile and Panama. He adds that it's "certainly something that we could pursue".

"I actually played fairly well, and then 3-putt and hit the ball in the water and 3-putted the last", Fowler said after his round. "I think I saw some highlights today".

He finished the tournament at 8 over, three shots off the cut line.

"Sometimes, I get a little too aggressive, like on 18".

So far, around Quail Hollow, Kisner has been able to do what no other player has managed - figure out the greens and roll in some decent-length putts.

World number two Jordan Spieth, chasing his fourth career major title and completion of a career Grand Slam at age 24, was two-over after 10 holes, bogeys at the third and 10th his undoing.

North Korea Tension: Beijing Tries Balancing Act
The threat itself came after Trump warned of " fire and fury ", urging North Korea to abandon its nuclear ambitions. At the same time, some of the public's anxiety is about Trump and his off the cuff handling of the situation.
