PGA Championship 2017: Jordan Spieth 'essentially out' after two disappointing rounds

PGA PGA Championship- Second Round

He missed the cut in the PGA Championship for the first time since 1992, which was a year before Spieth was born.

Ranked No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings and No. 3 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Matsuyama has been playing a lot of good golf over the past several years.

SportsPulse: Brooks Koepka clocked a marshal in the head at the first round of the PGA Championship. "I played even par after the delay and that's not very good, in my opinion, on those holes that we had left". Number two, I just take it up over the tree.

The popular American had two birdies and just one bogey on his scorecard and he remained in contention for a maiden major despite failing to birdie any of the par fives in round two. Fowler has shot rounds of 69 and 70 in the PGA's first two days.

"Yesterday I struggled with that but I sort of found something in my last couple of tee shots and took that into today and drove it a lot better and gave myself some pretty good looks and took advantage of it".

"Is there any reason to think he won't hit the ball that well for the rest of the week?"

With the projected cut now sitting at four-over, Scott is flirting with an early exit from the PGA Championship.

Italian Francesco Molinari matched Matsuyama's bogey-free 7-under 64 Friday by orchestrating his way around the course with five birdies and an eagle to get to 5 under for the tournament.

He blasted shots all around Quail Hollow, including the one that unfortunately landed on the marshal at the 16th hole.

"I would love to be on it, but the way I'm playing ..." Louis Oosthuizen parred the ninth to post 67 and finish the round on five-under. His second shot almost cleared the greenside bunker and Matsuyama got it up and down for a par that kept his momentum going.

Spieth birdied two of his last three holes on Thursday to card an opening one-over-par 72. However, a double bogey on the tough No. 3 par-4 set him back in an otherwise solid over-par round. He shot a two-over 74 and finished 11 over, not close to making the cut.
