Even though the second round of PGA Championship got halted midway due to bad weather, it could not restrict world number 7 Jason Day to continue his march up the leaderboard.
Day, the 2015 PGA Championship winner and last year’s runner-up, fired a five- under par 66 to be alone in third just two shots adrift of the leaders.
Though it was not a great start for Day as he began his round with a dropped shot early on day two. But with a stunning tap- in eagle at the par-5 seventh hole at Quail Hollow he preceded three consecutive birdies and raced to five-under-par. Racing daylight in order to finish the second round, the 29-year-old Day had four straight pars to close out his day.
Day leads the board with a shot under than 2010 British Open winner Louis Oosthuizen (70, 67), Francesco Molinari (73, 64) and American Chris Stroud (14 holes).
Earlier on Friday, American Kisner set the pace with a second consecutive 67 rocketing him to eight-under for the tournament. However, he could not maintain his monopoly as world number 3 Hideki Matsuyama, fresh off his win at last week’s WGC-Bridgestone, fired a bogey-free round of 64 to join Kisner at the top.
The PGA Championship now proceeds to round three for Saturday and it has already taken an interesting twist with Day and Matsuyama presenting a tough competition to Kisner. Tune In to DSport for the live coverage of PGA Championship in India.
