As well as winning four major titles, the World Number 8 has claimed two World Golf Championship events and four FedEx Cup play-off tournaments, with his victory in the 2016 Tour Championship giving him the overall title and 10million United States dollars bonus. We have to figure out a way to put it together. But the island green at #17 is famous for a reason; obviously there's some gimmickry there, but it's also just a wedge for pros, and a great example of how psychology and the visual elements of a hole can wreak havoc on players. I just can't physically do it.

He'll have a long way to go to put any pressure on Webb Simpson, who leads the tournament at 15-under and doesn't play until the afternoon, but it's a far cry from his play in the first two rounds.

'Never in a million years did I think someone would have a chance to shoot 61 around here, ' said an incredulous Sir Nick Faldo, on American television.

"It was nice to be able to get out there and shoot 67, five birdies, no bogeys", Day said after his round. "I didn't want to be one of those guys".

Nadal loses world number one spot
Thiem made the final in this tournament previous year and is much more comfortable on this surface than the South African. Denis Shapovalov defeated fellow Canadian Milos Raonic 6-4 6-4 to advance along with Kevin Anderson and John Isner.

It's only a wedge shot to a pretty large target in the calm conditions that prevailed on this occasion but the fact the green is surrounded completely by water plays bad tricks with the mind. Spieth and Thomas both moved to 1 under and moved the cut line.

Japan's Matsuyama, ranked ninth in the world, bounced back from a first-round 79 with a 69 - but he, too, took a double-bogey at 17 and missed the cut for the second week in a row. The Stadium Course has a history of not favoring any one style of play, and the list of winners at the PGA Tour's premier event illustrates that, going from Greg Norman to Lee Janzen, from Tiger Woods to Craig Perks, from Henrik Stenson to Tim Clark.

On a day where scoring was good, McIlroy was frustratingly up and down throughout the round, and while he'll be happy to be in the red, he'll be equally annoyed he's not a few shots better off.

"So we have basically taken it back wo where it was in 2011, 2010, when I was playing well", he said. "With that in mind, I think I can still win big tournaments. This is a hard tournament to come to after a three-week break".

Hamilton fastest, big crash for Hartley
Max Verstappen was fourth, in front of Kimi Raikkonen , while Alonso validated his McLaren's updates with the sixth fastest time . The top six all set their quickest Q2 times on the soft tyre, meaning they will all start Sunday's race on that compound.

Simpson was on such a roll, making birdie on every hole from the 11th through the 16th, that his playing companions, Jhonattan Vegas and Tyrrell Hatton, just laughed. "I'd like to say I hit it dead straight all the time, but I don't".

But he pulled a driving iron off the tee at the 10th into sand and dropped another shot, although he got it back when he drove the green at the 12th only to block his tee shot to the right of the 13th green and card his fourth bogey of the day.

Hadley has six top 10s this year and is at No. 19 in the FedEx Cup. Putts that I'm just trying to get close are going in.
