Beach opens with 8-over at PGA Championship

Pre-tournament favourite Rory McIlroy laboured to a one-over 72 and is back in 33rd alongside grand-slam-chasing Jordan Spieth. Find out all that and more on Saturday and Sunday at Quail Hollow.

There has been a shake-up for the televising of this championship, with Sky Sports losing the rights to broadcast the major billed as "Glory's Last Shot".

Thomas carded birdies on the par-5 15th and par-4 second holes, and bogeys on the par-3 17th and fourth holes before finishing with a tap-in birdie after almost holing out for eagle from 185 yards on the par-4 ninth hole. He has shot two rounds of 67 in the toughest conditions.

McIlroy, who trailed joint leader Kisner by five shots overnight, said he still felt "right in there" despite slipping further behind.

A light rain began falling not long after McIlroy's prediction.

"The golf course is an absolute brute this week".

Lahiri started the second round by dropping a shot on the first hole. From there, he shot 66-62 and won by four shots over Phil Mickelson. I know that sounds basic, but Spieth's game is all about dropping a couple of long putts, which he didn't do Thursday. There were splotches of mud of the sides of golf balls. Among a group of players tied for fourth at five-under is Italian Francesco Molinari, who equalled Matsuyama's 64 in the afternoon group.

"It's a little different golf course than what we've played in the past", Mickelson said. The storm delay did not stop him.

Kisner somehow birdied three of the last five holes.

McIlroy holed from 15 feet to match Smith's par and avoid losing that bet.

Meanwhile, Provo's Riverside Country Club assistant professional Chris Moody improved on his 10-over opening round with a 7-over round Friday for a total of 17-over, not good enough to stay for the weekend.

Lahiri said the firmness and speed of the new greens at Quail Hollow has been perplexing.

Given the size of Quail Hollow, Kisner drew up a simple plan: He identified four or five holes where he could make birdie and he played for par everywhere else.

"I've always fought a push to the right and got sick and exhausted of it", he said. Worse yet, the path headed down a steep slope toward the 11th fairway.

Fowler shot a 1-under 70 early on Friday and was tied for seventh place (3-under 139) when play was suspended due to darkness.
