"If I were to finish par-par-par, I would have thrown myself out of the tournament". Fowler shot a two-under 69 in the first round, and he is five strokes behind Kisner as he prepares for his second round. They like to get out of cell phone range and relax, fishing and hunting and taking target practice. "But just like anybody else, I have to see who is playing well at the time", Stricker said.
And Kisner also has ties to Charlotte, which is about two hours north of Aiken. "I've always fought a push to the right and got sick and exhausted of it", he said.
After drinking a refreshing water, soda or beer at the PGA Championship this week, fans might be surprised to find out that there is no recycling option at Quail Hollow Club for their cans and bottles.
Heading into the second round of play Friday there are 24 golfers within three shots of the lead - now shared by Thorbjorn Olesen and Kevin Kisner at -4. "A style and profile that's only visible when you are the best at what you do". Kisner's a shotmaker, not a bomber, after all. Olesen opened the PGA Championship betting period at 200/1, came into the tournament at 150/1, and now sits at 25/1. When I start hitting it the way I am now, I play well. "I feel like I have the game to compete in majors and tons of 30th- to 40th-, 50th-place finishes".
The 51-year-old with the one-of-a-kind career certainly has a history of colorful episodes at majors.

The opening round of the 2017 PGA Championship is officially in the books and the day finished with a very tightly packed leaderboard. This is probably the easiest one I've had to prep for because I know the golf course so well and I've been up here a lot. He still hit the ball so well that he grabbed two birdies late in the round that enabled him to keep the damage to a minimum.
The PGA Quail Hollow was supposed to be a bomber's utopia where the game's biggest and brightest would have an overwhelming advantage.
On Friday, Mickelson mixed four bogeys and a double with three birdies - all in a five-hole stretch on the front nine - and the rest pars. He's 2 over for the tournament, which is a distant 10 strokes behind Kisner, but he still signed his scorecard with positive vibes. Unfortunately, a round of golf is still 18 holes. "I can't imagine how much faster they are going to get".
At 24, he would become the youngest on the career Slam list by winning the Wanamaker Trophy this week, about six months younger than the mark held by Woods.
"I guess a low round used to be a 61 or a 62", McIlroy said. One also one needs to score off the par-fives because you are not going to get too many chances. With Sergio Garcia's popular victory at the Masters earlier this year, Fowler has in some minds inherited the dreaded title of "Best Golfer To Never Win A Major" - although Japan's Hideki Matsuyama is another strong contender for that moniker and another strong contender this weekend.
