Matsuyama feasted on soft conditions Friday evening after a rain delay halted play for almost two hours, but the track he faced in the third round was viewed by many players as more reminiscent of a U.S. Open host site than a PGA Championship venue.

Now, it has the trappings of a shootout.

Fox is seven strokes behind American Kevin Kisner, who holds the clubhouse lead after carding back-to-back 67s.

Fowler seemed to enjoy himself Friday, getting finished early before there were any weather delays. Then the storms arrived, and everything changed.

Hideki Matsuyama charged into position to become the first Japanese man to win a major after joining Kevin Kisner in the second-round lead on eight-under-par at the PGA Championship on Friday.

Molinari has done virtually everything in golf including capturing a WGC title winning the World Cup of Golf with his brother Edoardo and late past year denying Masters Champion, Danny Willett to win his home Italian Open for a second time in his career.

Quail Hollow has big greens, but they "play small" because of how firm they are and large runoffs. Matsuyama surged up the leaderboard with a 7-under 64 that leaves him 8 under through 36 holes. "But take him out of the equation, I feel like I'm still right there in the tournament". After firing a one-over 72 in round one, he shot a two-over 73 in round two to fall back to three over.

Regardless of his age, the unwavering will to win is as strong as it has ever been. As you know the Premier League is the main target'.

Dufner shot four under on his opening nine Friday, but he gave them all back with a five-over 40 on his inward nine. And now he's not sure what it will take.

We know Matsuyama is capable of running away from the field on Sunday, as he did with a final-round 61 to win the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last week at Firestone. He has shot two rounds of 67 in the toughest conditions.

"I've always fought a push to the right and got sick and exhausted of it", said Kisner. A nice 14-15 foot for par steadied me and on seventh two good shots to get to around 25 feet and two-putted for par. He's won an event in each of the last two seasons, had six more runner-up finishes and made it to the Tour Championship in 2015 and '16. He started to show signs of turning the corner last week at Firestone.

Lahiri missed a bunch of putts and messed up a couple of chips, but he did have a great day off the tees, from where he was very accurate. "That wasn't the goal", Spieth said.

"Any time you have a putt down grain, downhill ... we just tap it and hope it stops by the hole", Jon Rahm said after a 70.

GONE: Phil Mickelson celebrated playing in his 100th career major, but it only last two days. He said at the time he had shot the stunning score despite being uncomfortable with his swing, words he repeated pre-tournament here.
