How locals fared in the second round of the PGA Championship

The five-time major victor, who captured the 2005 PGA Championship, shot a 74 on Friday at Quail Hollow, but his fate was set when he shot 79 in the first round without making a birdie.

No one managed to post anything better than 67, and Olesen needed a long putt on the 18th hole for that.

"For a stretch of that round, I drove it really well. Other than the two birdies I made, remaining putts didn't drop", Lahiri said.

"That could have been a six or seven quite easily". You have to be good off the tee and I've done that.

McIlroy ended up with his second straight one-over par 72.

World's No. 1 Dustin Johnson is within reach to the PGA Championship leaderboard at 1-under at the end of Round One.

Spieth birdied two of his last three holes on Thursday to card an opening one-over-par 72.

When Rory McIlroy begins to falter, that's when you need to keep your eye on him most. That's saying something. Birkdale [the British Open venue] is a pretty special place.

He took two shots to get out of the sand and two more to find the green from the primary rough before two-putting for a 7.

Kisner started with six pars before picking up momentum on the par-5 seventh hole by rolling in a 50-foot eagle putt. He briefly fell to four over after a bogey on ten, but a birdie on the next hole gave the Clara man some hope.

Mickelson, playing his landmark 100th major, will not be back, though, after shooting a three-over 74 in round two to finish at 11 over. Despite rain earlier in the week, the SubAir system at Quail Hollow pulls moisture from the greens.

Or that he would be playing on a different hole. I can see a low one out there.

At one point Friday, Fowler went over to talk to National Basketball Association star Andre Iguodola - who was following the group that included both Fowler and Rory McIlroy - while waiting to hit a shot. That's a bad combination. "I had a shaky start but as the round progressed things became better". "But take him out of the equation - I feel like I'm still right there in the tournament".

Omar Uresti played in 350 events as a member of the PGA Tour. Kisner is looking to win his first major championship. He was the 2015 PGA Championship victor and he finished second a year ago.

There is no telling how many more chances he will have, given that the PGA Championship will move to May the year after next and the national club pro tournament - the avenue to qualify - will be moved up to April.
