PGA Championship 2017: Kevin Kisner ready for a 'dogfight' Sunday

He also bogeyed the par-4 18th after he sent his tee shot into a fairway bunker, then clipped the lip of the trap when he tried to escape and sent that shot left of the green and left his chip short, prompting him to take an extra swing of his wedge in frustration.

The 30-year-old Indian is now three- over for the tournament and Tied-50th and was sure to make the cut, which was likely at three or four-over. Find out all that and more on Saturday and Sunday at Quail Hollow.

Day believes that having been in position to win a major before - and succeeding - will help him this weekend at Quail Hollow. He finished with a trio of birdies over the final nine holes and one bogey. He's at 217, four over for three rounds and outside the top 40.

Kevin Kisner, a co-leader after each of the first two rounds, has the overnight lead by himself after scratching out a 1-over-par 72 for a 54-hole total of 7-under 206.

Ironically it was from seventh to ninth where Lahiri recovered from a shaky start on the first day. "It's a tough track where they are putting these flag sticks".

On undulating greens, some of the hole locations were extremely hard, with nobody on the leaderboard shooting better than the 68 by Canadian Graham DeLaet, who went six-under in a remarkable four-hole stretch to vault within five strokes of the lead.

The rain delay, which started just after 16:30 local time (20:30 GMT), lasted almost two hours.

Jason Day and Louis Oosthuizen also rallied fiercely in the afternoon, after two bouts of showers softened the course, to climb the leaderboard and get into contention. Lahiri was at one stage, three-over after eight holes on Thursday.

Victory this week would have seen him surpass Woods as the youngest member of that exclusive club, but a third round of 71 left him well off the pace.

With 26 players still trying to finish the second round, 17 players remained under par. "I had a shaky start but as the round progressed things became better".

"The greens were way firmer as they had dried up as compared to yesterday". He was doing fine with an even-par 35 on the front nine, but back-to-back bogeys on Nos. "I had a few more opportunities and then really putted nicely after No 6 today". Given the size of Quail Hollow, Kisner drew up a simple plan.

According to the latest oddsmakers, Hideki Matsuyama is now the favorite to win the major, as he has +138 odds.

McIlroy did have a front-row seat to watch the one Wells Fargo Championship victor who is off to a good start at the PGA Championship, Rickie Fowler.
