Faldo slams "crazy" Day decision at PGA

Kevin Kisner reacts after his putt on the ninth green during the second round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at the Quail Hollow Club Friday Aug. 11 2017 in Charlotte N.C

In 2017, he's finished in the top 25 in six of his 18 events so far and came into the PGA Championship following the first PGA Tour win of his career, during the off-week Barracuda Championship.

However, changes to several holes and a switch to bermuda rough and greens had not suited the four-time major victor, whose last major title came in the 2014 US PGA at Valhalla.

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

Day will forever regret his brain explosion after cutting the ears off his drive, and trying to play a miracle shot around the trees to get back in the frame.

Spieth shot an even 71 in his third round Saturday at the PGA Championship, the final leg he needs to complete the Slam, and stands at 3-over for the tournament. Though he was at one time four over for the tournament, he fought his way back into contention with a 68.

"To finally get a win was really magical", Stroud said. "Disappointing would have been going home after two days", he said.

"Didn't do anything great today but I didn't do anything bad". This is the start of the fourth quarter [of the season]. That also gave him a chance to become the first Japanese player to win a Major.

"Just one round like that can do that". "It's something I'll probably always remember when I look back at my career. I felt very good about the way I was stroking it and the way I played 10 of the last 11 holes".

(CNN) Kevin Kisner held a slender one-shot lead over fellow American Chris Stroud and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama as Quail Hollow's infamous "Green Mile" finishing holes took their toll in Saturday's third round of the PGA Championship.

It soured a brief comeback during which Day bagged three consecutive birdies from the par-four 14th which kept him in the hunt despite a poor opening 13 holes. It took him back to level par, seven shots adrift of the lead. He was two shots behind, along with Jason Day. "Just said, 'OK, I'll bounce it up the cart path and see where this goes".

"I'm probably not playing as well as I did at the end of past year. He was happy as well obviously, to be able to finish and not have to wake up at 5.30".

Matsuyama feasted on soft conditions Friday evening after a rain delay halted play for almost two hours, but the track he faced in the third round was viewed by many players as more reminiscent of a U.S. Open host site than a PGA Championship venue.

Kisner, meanwhile, used his "Texas wedge" from off the green to sink a 47-foot putt at the par-five seventh - his 16th hole - and vault clear of the field, at least for a while.
