To the certainties in this world being death and taxes, maybe weather delays should be added when it comes to the US PGA Championship. Perhaps the upcoming switch of this event to May is a smarter idea than anybody has Authentic Blake Martinez Youth Jersey given the PGA of America credit for. Someone, somewhere appears deeply against the tournament in its current position.
Suspension of play, shortly before 5pm local time on Friday, ensured a sixth such scenario in a row at this championship. Menacing skies delivered the predicted storm, with tournament officials encountering their latest organisational headache as they seek to conclude this major on time. At least they have been in this movie before. A wider danger resonates in more ominous forecasts on Saturday and Sunday.
US PGA Championship 2017: second round, as it happened
Hole-by-hole report: A weather-interrupted second round saw Hideki Matsuyama and Francesco Molinari shoot wonderful 64s. Scott Murray was watching.
Only the elements could – briefly – halt Hideki Matsuyama. Japan has surely never been closer to hailing a male major champion, a matter emphasised as he charged through the second-round leaderboard. The man who shot 61 to win at Akron on Sunday produced six birdies in 15 holes, including four in a row, in moving to seven under par, one adrift of Kevin Kisner. Matsuyama returned to the course to better that position, tying the lead with a birdie at the 17th before taking four at the last to http://www.packersnflofficialshop.com/authentic-brett-favre-jersey.html complete a 64.
Matsuyama was not alone in making progress, even if his was the most striking. Jason Day, who offered such a grim analysis of his golf before striking a ball here that it sounded impossible he could compete, instead blasted himself into contention. Another major champion, Louis Oosthuizen, also lingers promisingly behind the leaders. Matsuyama, though, is the clear and present danger to all as he pursues national history while in the form of his life.
What Rory McIlroy does not know about this venue is probably not worth bothering about. His assessment of what will or, more pertinently, will not transpire over the weekend is therefore telling. “A low round here used to be a 61 or a 62,” he said. “A low round now is a 66 or a 67. You’re playing your ass off to get that. I’d say if I shoot two 67s over the weekend, I’m going to have a really good chance.” McIlroy has posted both 61 and 62 here in previous tournament play.
“This is not the Quail Hollow we have gotten to know over the last 10 years,” he added. “It’s a completely different golf course. Even if they didn’t do anything else with the golf course and just changed it to full Bermuda [grass] like it is now, all of a sudden it makes the golf course two shots more difficult.”
The popularity or otherwise of alterations to this course will be a matter of future debate. It is highly unlikely any player will enjoy a procession towards Authentic Reto Berra Youth Jersey the Wanamaker Trophy despite the early touch of Kisner. The 33-year-old, who has never recorded a top-10 major finish, signed for back-to-back 67s for an eight under par total.
If McIlroy’s matching 72s look uninspiring, the Northern Irishman was in grave danger of missing the cut after four bogeys in five back-nine holes. The two-shot recovery emphasised McIlroy’s willingness to battle.As McIlroy scrapped, one of his playing partners flourished. Rickie Fowler, who is yet to add a major title to his otherwise stellar CV, posted a second round of 70 to move to three under. His prominence is all the more impressive given a triple bogey seven in the early stages of day one, which threatened to derail his challenge.
“You don’t want to get ahead of yourself,” said Fowler. “This week I’m going to have a good chance. The thing is I have got to manage that properly.“I have to stay patient. I have to go through the process, make sure we’re making the right decisions on each hole with each shot. With the way I’ve been playing, how I’m swinging this week and last week going into http://www.officialpanthersonlinestore.com/Shawn_Thornton_Jersey it, I know I can win this week. It’s more in between the ears, and not get ahead of myself. If we do that, it will be all right.”
“I’m not really focused out there,” said a despondent Mickelson. “I’m having a tough time controlling my thoughts and not letting them wander to what I don’t want [to] happen.” Amateur golfers the world over know the feeling.Arsenal’s penchant for starting seasons by getting a wobble in early has become something of an epidemic and they made a good stab at a repeat here. Arsène Wenger leaned on the game’s statistics to suggest this win was somehow logical – bags of possession and 27 shots for his team compared to three on target for the visitors – but few in the crowd would have argued had Leicester been able to hold on to the lead they seized with moments of ferocious determination.
A frenetic opening five minutes set the tone and presented a microcosm of all of Arsenal’s weird, paradoxical sense of possibility. Their ability to exude verve and be vulnerable in the same few flashes of a game was there for all to see. Day-one optimism cascaded down from the stands as the record signing Lacazette opened the scoring with his first meaningful Premier League touch. A mere two minutes into his official Arsenal career he was unmarked in the box to steer a powerful header past Kasper Schmeichel.
