Tony Finau's Round 2 Scorecoard is a Sight to Behold

12 August, 2018, 04:31 | Author: Kenneth Collins
  • Tiger Woods was joined by Rory Mc Ilroy and Justin Thomas for the first round

Jordan Spieth made sure he would advance to the weekend at the 100th PGA Championship by firing a 4-under 66 in the second round at Bellerive Country Club.

Four-time major victor Rory McIlroy birdied the eighth to open but parred his next five holes as he had the first seven playing alongside Woods.

Satoshi Kodaira delivered the first eagle of the PGA Championship when he put his drive at the short, par-4 11th within 5 feet of the hole and rolled in his putt.

Woods, chasing his first major in a decade, had a rollercoaster finish with three birdies and two bogeys but a 66 left the 14-times major victor six back and within reach of what would be a record-equalling fifth PGA title.

The second round was to resume at 7 a.m. local time Saturday, and the third round - weather permitting - was to start 30 minutes after the conclusion of the second round, with threesomes starting on both sides.

Thomas, trying to join Woods as the only back-to-back winners of the PGA Championship since it changed to stroke play in 1958, ran off four birdies on the back nine for a 65 that left him in the group at 6-under 134.

If truth be told it was a small miracle that he managed to play his last six holes in two under par despite hitting one green, for a 67.

No one caught Woodland, meaning his 36-hole score of 130 stood as the PGA Championship record.

‘Monster’ Pogba leads Manchester United to winning start
But due to Mourinho's lack of options Pogba was asked if he could play - and as you would expect, he said yes. Pogba scored for France in July's World Cup final and will hope to transfer his worldwide success to United.

The Golf Channel's Justin Ray highlights how good the scoring was on Friday, tweeting that it was only the second time in major championship history that there were two scores of 63 in the same round. "Kevin played beautifully today". The bogey and double bogey on the back nine at Carnoustie once he grabbed the outright lead on Sunday.

The 28-year-old Englishman seemed to not believe it, throwing his hands in the air.

"I feel like I just played 27 holes, and I only played 11", Thomas said. "Obviously things haven't been going well for me this year (but) the last few weeks have been good".

Tiger Woods, set to be an assistant captain, is expected by many to land one of the coveted picks after his comeback from spinal fusion surgery this season.

Less likely to make the team is ninth-ranked Bryson DeChambeau, who missed a four-foot putt at his final hole on Saturday to miss the cut by one stroke. The greens are also rolling more quickly, and more to the players' liking, after they were a touch slow Thursday from rain early in the week. Tiger Woods sits tied for 24th at minus-3.

"I didn't think we were going to get called off yesterday and I was going along lovely so I was probably a little bit disappointed".

Spieth's next shot at the career Grand Slam comes next May at Bethpage Black.
