Teeing off on the 10th, Smith rolled in for birdie from eight feet and when he did likewise from 16 foot on the 13th, the major championship rooke was incredibly within two strokes of teh top of the leaderboard.

But his ball took a couple of firm hops off the path and had enough pace to roll through the bunker, over the lip and onto the green, finally settling in the fringe from where he got up and down to salvage an unlikely five.

"I kind of accept the fact that I'm essentially out of this tournament pending some form of insane stuff the next couple of days", Spieth said.

"I'm obviously not scoring well, and I hit the ball in every bad spot", Mickelson said after finishing 36 holes at 153, 11-over par and well outside the projected cut line.

Guam Governor Says Trump Called, Assured Island Is Safe
However, Guam's security agency has issued a fact sheet with advice on what residents should do in the event of a nuclear attack. The phone call took place amid escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea - with Guam in the crosshairs.

"Usually, I step up for the majors and this year has been slow for me, so being in contention is good for my confidence right now".

McIlroy, 28, could become only the third player to win five majors before turning 30, joining Nicklaus and Woods.

Hideki Matsuyama rode a roller-coaster as he opened with two birdies, but turned in one-under. Walker bogeyed four times on the front nine and followed up with two double bogeys on the back nine, including one on the final hole. "I've gotten paired with Jon a few times, and Rory and I have played quite a bit of golf together over the years". That's saying something. Birkdale [the British Open venue] is a pretty special place. He has shot two rounds of 67 in the toughest conditions.

Only 17 players are under par on the tough Quail Hollow course that features length and demands accuracy off the tee to set up approaches to greens with crowned tops.

As tensions with North Korea escalate, Trump retweets several comparisons with Obama
As America's tensions with North Korea hit apocalyptic proportions, President Trump is going to war with - Mitch McConnell and Barack Obama.

"I'm going to say every course we play is a bomber's course anymore. That's my plan. Other than that, I'm playing for par". Here there is severe rough. "I had good position, I just didn't take advantage of my opportunities". Rahm shot 70, and McIlroy " a two-time victor at Quail Hollow who lost to Fowler in a playoff there in 2012 " had a 72.

He's hoping his consistent play can lead to that elusive first major championship.

We're almost half way through the 2017 PGA Championship.

Defending champion Jimmy Walker of the United States had a miserable day on Thursday, shooting a 10-over 81.
