Faldo slams "crazy" Day decision at PGA

Faldo slams

There are a number of stars between the leaders and Spieth, with Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and John Rahm on one-under par, while Patrick Reed, Paul Casey and Rickey Fowler are a shot better off, and the Open champion knows he needs to close the gap as soon as possible to stand a chance of contending on Sunday. Instead, it was mostly just trying to scramble out of trouble. "It's just unfortunate because I was actually in a rhythm and the momentum was going my way and we got called off". "(It's) one of the craziest decisions I've ever seen", said Faldo.

"That could have been a six or seven quite easily".

Playing alongside good friend Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas shot a 2-under 69 to get to 5 under for the tournament. Starting at 10, he had two birdies and one bogey and parred his last 10 holes.

"I'm probably not playing as well as I did at the end of previous year". That's saying something. Birkdale [the British Open venue] is a pretty special place. That should have got me better scores, because if you miss the green it is hard to chip at times.

Fox's 66 was the low round of the tournament till that point, and comprised four birdies on the front nine and a further two, plus a lone bogey on the par-four 11th, on the inward nine.

However, he found trouble in the rough on the long 15th and dropped a shot before two more shots went at the 16th and the 18th - Quail Hollow's notorious "Green Mile" to send him to the turn in over-over-par 37.




Asked how he ended up playing with McIlroy in practice, 2016 Challenge Tour victor Smith added: "A good friend of mine knows Rory's caddie (Harry Diamond) so I got his contact details and chatted to him and managed to hook it up". The round was later stopped by darkness, and the final 25 players will complete their rounds on Saturday. I probably didn't quite hit it as well off the tee as I did yesterday and wasn't putting myself in positions where I could go at a lot of pins.

"I'm not searching. It's not like I'm hitting the ball crooked". "Other than that, I would have been just fine".

Matsuyama has one of the strongest overall games on the PGA Tour.

Never in his 10-year professional career has McIlroy come from 10 shots back with two rounds to play to win any of his 22 career victories.

Brian Gaffney in 2015 at Whistling Straits was the only club pro to make the cut the last six years.

That is the task facing the 28-year old and on a Quail Hollow course where he has won two of seven regular-season PGA Tour Wells Fargo Championship.
