Good night

That's your lot for tonight.

Day two has claimed some big names including Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson.

Leader Jimmy Walker has tied the record for the lowest 36 holes in US PGA Championship history while Robert Streb shares the lead after a stunning 63.

Plenty are in contention on moving day at Baltusrol including defending champion Jason Day, who finished on seven under.

So joins us for round three to find out who will put themselves into contention for the Wanamaker Trophy.

+3 Kaufman

Forget the hype we just gave Kaufman, his chip missed the green, his first putt is short and he in fact bogeys the hole and misses the cut himself.

What a reversal of fortune.

Smylie Kaufman tee shot is into the rough.

Big ask to chip in for birdie, the players on plus might be a little happier about things right now.

Colt Knost is one of those on two over...

Don't be a hero @SmylieKaufman10 !

Cut to move?

American Smylie Kaufman is on his final hole and he could have a big say in who makes the cut.

A birdie on the par three ninth and those on plus two are out of here, a group that includes Phil Mickelson.

Big guns lurking

But there will be some big old names going home, apart from McIlroy and pre-tournament favourite Dustin Johnson, who finished tied for 142nd out of a field of 156. That said, it's a quality leaderboard, with defending champion Day, Open champion Stenson and two-time major winners Kaymer and Spieth all lurking.

McIlroy's favour

That bogey by McIlroy at 18 was obviously bad for him, but I believe it means the cut stayed at +2, assuring former US Open champion Justin Rose, former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel and four-time major winner Ernie Els will all be here for the weekend.

Day finishes on seven under

-7 Day

Jason Day finishes with a par and what a fantastic round for the world number one.

He is tied for third place on seven under after eight birdies in his 65.

Mickelson makes the cut

+1 Mickelson

Phil Mickelson with an eagle attempt, I tell you what it wasn't far off. But he taps in for birdie and the Lefty makes the cut on one over.

That triple bogey on the first seems a long time ago now.

McIlroy out

+3 McIlroy

Rory McIlroy has to chip in for par, he misses and that is the end of his week. A bogey leaves him three over for the tournament and he is out of the US PGA Championship.

Walker & Streb lead on -9

Streb drains a monster at the ninth, his 18th, for a 63 and a share of the lead. That's the lowest round of the week from the American, who carded eight birdies.  

Rory McIlroy has a tough lie and proves that fact as his chip fails to leave the rough. His fourth shot is another terrible chip and it is not even on the green.

Jason Day shows how it is done landing it on the green at his first attempt.

Donaldson -4, Scott -3

Streb is currently second and he's playing to one man and a dog. Here he is pinging one down the middle on 18. Scott moves to three under with a birdie at the last for a 67, Donaldson is in with a 67 for four under. 

Jason Day out of the rough, 276 yards to the hole and he just manages to land on an island of rough between two bunkers to the right of the green.

Phil Mickelson's second shot lands on the green. An eagle chance, but a birdie is most likely.

Rory's second shot, but he turns away in disgust, it lands next to Day's ball but he is not happy.

Rory McIlroy at the 18th, a solid looking tee shot right in the middle of the short stuff.

Jason Day takes an iron off the tee, on a 554 yard hole, but it is one of those 'fore right' shots. Not a good start by the world number one.

Phil Mickelson with a hybrid and it's a good start.

The cut is currently plus two so this will go down to the wire for McIlroy and Mickelson.

Streb stays -8

Brooks Koepka is in with a 67 for five under overall, four off the lead of Jimmy Walker. It doesn't look like we're going to have a club pro here this weekend, Ryan Helminen bogeyed 15 and is +3, one shot outside the projected cut, which could still shift to +1. Streb has a putt for the share of the lead at eight... leaves it short, he stays -8. 

+2 Mickelson -7 Day (both 17)

Jason Day is down for par and he will probably be happy with that after his tee shot.

Phil Mickelson for birdie and he misses it. Par for Lefty. It will go down to the wire to make the cut.


+2 McIlroy (17)

Rory McIlroy has a 35ft uphill putt for birdie and he nails it, I repeat he has nailed that. A lifeline.

Casual third shot for Jason Day, but it's good enough, he gives a nod and knows he has another birdie chance.

Mickelson wedge shot is on the money, he too has a birdie chance that could prove decisive in making the cut.

Bunker shot for McIlroy, but it is short. You feel the game is up for the two-time champion.

.@JimmyWalkerPGA 131 ties record for lowest 1st 36-hole score at @PGAChampionship. Is 1 stroke shy of tying record for any major. @PGATOUR

A great recovery shot by Jason Day from the rough among the crowds to get back on the fairway. The crowd are on top of the defending champion and they celebrate wildly after that shot, one kid is desperate for a high five and finall gets one from the Australian.

Rory McIlroy with the three wood, he's going for it but his shot lands in the bunker in front of the green.

Remember this is a 649 yard par five.

Phil Mickelson takes a more conservative approach and give himself a 94 yard wedge shot to the green.

On a knife edge

The cut is very unstable at the moment, fluctuating between +1 and +2. If Mickelson can make a birdie at 17 or 18, we think it will go back to +1 - it's currently +2. Birdie at 17 for Jamie Donaldson, he moves to -4 and five off the lead.

Streb -8

Adam Scott of Australia has been quiet this week but he's just picked up birdies at 14 and 15 to get to -2. Another birdie at six for Robert Streb, he's now eight under and outright second.

Wild tee shot by Jason Day on the 17th. He is leaning back in his swing and hooks the ball left, crashing into the blue boarding.

Better from Rory McIlroy, over 325 yards, but he needs at least a birdie here.

Phil Mickelson takes the easy route, 300 yards down the fairway.

McIlroy cut further adrift

-7 Day +2 Mickelson +3 McIlroy (all 16)

Shock. Jason Day has not got a birdie (just a par).

Not a shock. Rory McIlroy misses a birdie. 

He really should have got that, it was just a few feet but his alignment looked all wrong. It's a par but at three over with  two to play, his tournament is slipping away.

Phil Mickelson gets a bogey. That could really hurt his chances of making the cut, which is currently plus one.

Walker clubhouse leader on -9

Padraig, champion in 2008, looks like he's made the cut with a birdie at 18. That cut at +1 at the moment. Walker jabs his par putt wide at 18, finishes with a 66 and leads in the clubhouse on nine under. Had he made that, he would have equalled the record for lowest first 36-hole score at a major.

Par three 16th now.

Rory McIlroy desperately needs birdies, probably two in his last three to make the cut.

And his quest starts well, landing his tee shot five feet from the pin.

Phil Mickelson finds the bunker, while Jason Day is on the far side of the green.


Streb -7

Streb in with a birdie at six, he ties for second on seven under. Walker with a 60-footer for birdie at 18... comes up about five feet short...

Jason Day's wife is loving her husband's performance...

Brits flagging

Matsuyama birdied the last for a 67, he's four under and six off the lead. The highest-placed Brit at the moment is Welshman Jamie Donaldson, who is three under through 15. Casey is -2, Johnston, Westwood and Fisher are -1. I don't think we'll see a British winner this year.

Birdie number eight for Day

-7 Day (15)

Jason Day for birdie, bit of left to right, but no problems there. His eighth birdie.

The Australian is now in second place on seven under with two of the easiest holes, the long par fives to come.

Fowler -4 (68)

Fowler finishes with birdie-eagle, is in with a round of 68 for four under overall. Here's Walker with his third into 18 and he's safely on. Should be a par, but should have been better.

Jason Day can do no wrong.

His second shot on the 15th leaves him with another birdie chance.

Rory McIlroy must wish some of his playing partner's magic would rub off on him. A terrible second shot from just 100 yard rolls back down the green and leaves him with a 30ft putt.


Grillo in with a 67 for the clubhouse lead on -7. Walker leads by three, but I'm hearing he's found the drink off the tee at 18...

Fowler flying

Robert Streb

Great saver from Streb at four, he stays six under. Fowler birdied 17 to get to -2 and he's just played a magnificent approach at 18 for an eagle chance. Silence greets Walker's tee shot on 18, I'll let you know...


+2 Mickelson +3 McIlroy

Phil Mickelson drops back to two over with a bogey on the 14th while Rory McIlroy just can't get his putting together.

Another missed birdie opportunity and another par for the two-time champ.

Unstoppable Day

-6 Day (14)

Wow. The defending champion has another birdie.

A 37ft foot downhill putt and it rolls straight in.

Seven holes, six birdies.

Grillo stumbles

Paul Casey has taken his round by the scruff of the neck - out in 36 but he's made four birdies between 11 and 15 and is suddenly two under. Grillo misses with his long par putt at eight after a poor recovery, he drops to -7 and three off the lead of Walker.
