Fowler did it differently than Day did, mostly because he played a tougher course.

Sunny skies and temperatures in the 80s baked the course and the greens.

Mickelson, 47, had played well at Quail Hollow when the Wells Fargo tournament was played here. "And there's a lot of putts that honestly, I'm not trying to make", Matsuyama said. "We just have to practice that much harder in March", he said, mindful of the difficulty of that for pros in the Northeast.

He added: "Somehow, my worst shots were finding the fairway".

In the first round, Spieth nearly lost a chance to connect when he birdied two consecutive holes before putting two birdies to get back into the chase for another Grand Slam.

Matsuyama rescued par at the ninth with a 22-foot putt, then began his birdie charge with a 12-foot putt at the par-4 12th and six-footers at the par-3 13th and par-4 14th before a storm halted play.

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama joined American Kevin Kisner at the top of the leaderboard at the rain-delayed PGA Championship with a new course second round of seven-under-par 64 following a thunderstorm delay of almost two hours. Yet while the detractors were rolling their eyeballs, Fowler started rolling his Titleist, pulling back three more shots for a 69.

"I don't know what that was".

"The first 15 holes, especially, I was driving the ball very, very well and that made it a bit easier", said the world No. 78, a four-time European Tour victor.

After a rain delay Friday afternoon softened the course and created prime scoring conditions, Spieth played even par once play resumed.

"If they get about a foot faster, they are kind of unplayable with the pin placements", Koepka said. "I got everything going", Fox told Radio Sport after his second round. The fairways became softer, and therefore looked wide, because they lost some of the roll. "You never really quite felt like the ball was ever going to stop".

"What I saw today that I haven't seen from Hideki is that little extra he has", the South African veteran told a small group of reporters after Matsuyama had carded seven-under 64 to tie American Kevin Kisner for the second-round lead at Quail Hollow. Both birdied the 18th to close with 67. You've got to stay patient.

"It's nice to be in the hunt a little bit, see your name up on the board, have the feel of the cameras on you", said Points. The greens are so firm, you can't control your spin.

The Northern Irishman was one under for his round and level par overall through his first 10 holes on Friday, but a run of four bogeys in five holes threatened to derail his tournament.
