Rory McIlroy and his amazing cart-path par at the PGA Championship

"He made every putt around 20 feet, and was seven under after nine", Phelps said.

The PGA Championship is the major that most often produces random, freaky leaderboards after the first 18 holes.

Day opened his account with a birdie on the second hole before dropping a shot immediately after.

Kisner and Matsuyama, both leading a major for the first time, were at 8-under 134.

Phelps saw much that he liked when Spieth, who started on the course's more hard back nine, completed his first nine at par despite fighting his putter.

Matsuyama, Kisner and Day will tee off together at 2 PM ET (1800 GMT). But he has won twice in US PGA Tour events at Quail Hollow, losing a third in a playoff.

Spieth came into the tournament needing a victory in the PGA Championship to achieve the career Grand Slam.

Reaction to the Sammy Watkins trade
The move continues LA's effort to put 2016 former one overall pick Jared Goff in the best position to succeed possible. Coach Sean McDermott is taking a flier here in the hopes Gaines can rebound. "This was absolutely a we decision".

Quick visit: Jon Drago, tournament director of the AT&T Byron Nelson, is working the PGA Championship as a rules official, on the fourth and 10th holes. He then tapped in for birdie.

Third-ranked Matsuyama, trying to become the first Japanese man to win a major title, and 25th-ranked American Kisner, who won his second USA tour title in May at Colonial, still shared the second-round lead on eight-under par 134.

Stroud was bogey free with three birdies on a golf course he's as comfortable with as Woodland is.

McIlroy had to play an outrageous recovery shot on his opening hole - the par five tenth - bouncing his ball eighty yards down a cart track and sending it scuttling through the back of the green. If he had finished his round at 4 over - that would have required one birdie and two pars - the cut would have gone to 4 over and eliminated Adam Scott, Charles Howell III and Kevin Chappell.

Sixteen players remained under par. He finished on 14-over-par, the same score as playing partner Thomas Pieters, while Xander Schauffele, the other member of the group, was one shot better on 13-over.

Despite all of Jordan Spieth's success early in his career, there was one reason to be skeptical of his performance - golfers with mediocre drivers are not supposed to dominate in today's game of golf. So rather than get disqualified for coming in late on his round Friday at the PGA Championship, he did this. Instead, he's heading in the opposite direction after making bogey on two of the first five holes. 16 and 17 and seven shots out of the lead.

Spieth was hoping to become the youngest player to win all four majors.

FOX TROT: Ryan Fox caught Quail Hollow before the rain on Friday and he turned in a 66 to go from a short week at his first PGA Championship to 1-under 141 going into the weekend at Quail Hollow. He played his first 12 holes in three-over par, but quickly rediscovered his form. On his outward journey, he had three bogeys in a row from No. 3 but made up for them with consecutive birdies on his last three holes.
