PGA Championship: Jordan Spieth ready to start 'fourth quarter'

"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.

One of the good things of the day was that some of the things that I worked on with Vijay (Divecha) sir worked out, like attitude on the golf course.

Hideki Matsuyama didn't have his best stuff but at six-under the world No.3 left himself a chance to become Japan's first male major victor; sitting one shot back of leader Kevin Kisner.

Spieth is sure to have plenty more chances to complete the Grand Slam but he admits it will not be easy. "I'm definitely more exhausted than if I would have played great, but I will definitely take it". "Onto the weekend to try and fire at stuff". The 14 is a short par four, and DeLaet's tee shot landed eight feet from the cup. Just no reason to bail out on those at this point in the position I was in. "If something like that happens, I think I can handle it a little better". "That's my plan. Other than that, I'm playing for par".

Despite carrying pre-tournament favourite status courtesy of top-five finishes in his last two starts and a superb record at host Quail Hollow, world No.4 Rory McIlroy (73) slumped to four-over. He went without a bogey in his second round and had four straight birdies at one point. The cut looked likely at three or four-over though the weather expected to take a turn for the worse with rain and thunderstorms in late afternoon, could push the cutline higher. I think he's got the right game and confidence to make a run at this major.

No one managed to post anything better than 67, and Olesen needed a long putt on the 18th hole for that. "It's still hard to make birdies, but if you hit the right shots, we had definitely had softer conditions which made it easier". Heavy rain and nearby lightning strikes forced players and spectators back inside, but the course yielded more birdies after play resumed.

Kisner already had given up a two-shot lead in the third round with a shot into the water on the 16th hole that led to double bogey. But I believe we can play anywhere and can win anywhere.

"Even if they didn't do anything else with the golf course and just changed it to full Bermuda like it is now, all of a sudden makes the golf course two shots more hard".

"When I was 9 years old, I knew I wanted to be on the PGA Tour, " Stroud said.
