Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, watches his tee shot on the 17th hole during the second round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North CarolinaJason Day of Australia, warms up on the 11th hole during the second round of the PGA Championship golf tournament at the Quail Hollow Club.

Stroud has become the surprise story of the tournament, teeing off in the final paring Sunday alongside tournament leader Kevin Kisner.

That ended his streak of 28 consecutive cuts made dating to last year's PGA Championship. He got it out of the way Saturday at the PGA Championship. "I feel so lucky and so privileged to play on a course like this".

About the featured group of Spieth, Garcia and Koepka - left to right, Claret Jug, green jacket, U.S. Open trophy - they had 14 bogeys Friday.

He took only 23 putts and can't explain why they seem to be going in except that he switched to a new putter last week.

He did pose over the 7-iron that covered the flag tucked behind a bunker on the par-3 17th, leaving him a seven-foot putt for his final birdie.

"I think a big step is just understanding that no lead is safe", Kisner said. Birdies at seven and eight banished those fears, but the result was still another one over par 72.

Cruise was even getting injuries in the early days of the franchise when he was about 20 years younger. The sixth installment in the " Mission: Impossible " franchise is now shooting in London.

Kisner, who is seeking his first major championship victory, has not fared well in the game's biggest events and is keen for that to change this week. One of his dropped shots was on the par-5 seventh, and as he mentioned earlier, "One also one needs to score off the par-fives because you are not going to get too many chances". "Stricker said, "[Mickelson] told me he wants to be on this team more than anything. but just like anybody else, I have got to see who is playing well at the time. "I said to Harry, 'Let's birdie two of the last three'". He just never thought he would be doing it on the 18th hole of a major championship. "But I've just got to focus on just trying to control what I can do out there". "When that putt went in, you shake your head and it was pretty unreal".

Take his strategy for Quail Hollow.

"It is frustrating to me because I'm sitting there, and I'm like, 'My game is not where it should be".

"I said, 'Listen, I'll give you a beer tonight " just get it down there so that we can go, '" Oostiuzen said.

"I didn't even know what he made".

Australian Jason Day‚ who started the round at six-under‚ finished the day at even par after a calamitous quadruple bogey on the 18th. Kisner was four-under through 17 holes and moved to 8-under, while Olesen (four-under) was yet to start second round. What result to expect now from Quail Hollow?
