  1. Until tomorrow...

    Brooks Koepka and Tiger Woods

    And that is a wrap from us.

    Brooks Koepka steams into the weekend with a seven-shot lead, while Tiger Woods heads home (or to his yacht?).

    Grand Slam-chasing Jordan Spieth and Adam Scott are the nearest challengers, with world number one Dustin Johnson a further stroke behind.

    And there are British hopefuls too, in Englishmen Matt Wallace and Justin Rose, while Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy has just squeezed inside the cut.

    We'll see you tomorrow...

  2. 'I made too many mistakes'

    T Woods +5 (F)

    Tiger Woods, who missed the cut after finishing on +5, said:

    "I’m the Masters champions at 43-years-old, that’s a great achievement.

    "It’s just the way it goes sometimes. You don’t feel well and aren’t able to do it.

    "I made too many mistakes and didn’t do the little things I needed to do. I did a lot of little things wrong.

    "I’ve enjoyed being the Masters champion again and the PGA was a quick turnaround. Unfortunately I just didn’t play well. I didn’t do all the little things I needed to do correctly to post good scores.

    "I’m hoping to feel a bit better. I’ll start training again and get back up to speed."

  3. Post update

    A bit of reaction from Tiger Woods to come in a moment, says he's not been feeling too well at Bethpage Black this week...

  4. Koepka to follow Cotton?

    Andrew Cotter

    BBC Sport commentator

    The only other player since 1900 to lead a major by seven or more shots after two rounds is Henry Cotton at the 1934 Open Championship. He went on to win by five shots.

  5. '67 great on this course'

    J Rose -3 (F)

    World number two Justin Rose speaking to Sky Sports: "I played really, really well. The number is great, there was a score to be had. 67 is great on this course.

    "I left three or four out there on the front nine but then started playing really well. That run around the turn made me feel I made up for a few mistakes earlier in the round.

    "Hopefully it's a confidence building round.

    "The forecast was weird today, they forecast 20mph winds but there was hardly a breath out there. They shortened it up anticipating some tougher weather. Today you could max out with your yardages.

    "Brooks is a tough competitor but you never know, keep chugging away and it's not easy to keep a lead around here."

  6. 67 for Wallace

    M Wallace -4 (F)

    Phew. Matt Wallace's second shot lands around 10ft to the right of the hole. It takes him two putts, but he manages a par to end his round.

  7. 'I'll chip away at it'

    A Scott -5 (F)

    Adam Scott, who sits tied second on five under par, speaking to Sky Sports: "I had wedges into the first two holes and holed long putts.

    "I felt there was a chance for a hot finish, unfortunately I didn't hit it into a position to take advantage and dropped one.

    "If I can chip away at it tomorrow you never know. It's a very difficult course and there are doubles left, right and centre out there."

  8. Wallace in fantasyland

    Andrew Cotter

    BBC Sport commentator

    The television pictures are a little sparse so we can make this up...Matt Wallace is chipping over the unicorn on the final hole.

  9. Koepka to 'put the pedal down'?

    B Koepka -12 (F)

    Leader Brooks Koepka, speaking to Sky Sports: "I was battling a little bit and everything was leaking right, it's something I've battled my whole life so should be an easy fix.

    "Today is a new day, it doesn't matter about yesterday, just needed to post a good score and I'm very pleased. You've just got to battle and I'm proud of the way I hung in there today.

    "Getting off to a good start was kind of key. It builds momentum for the rest of the round and makes you feel better.

    "Nice to finish on a birdie, I am putting well, just need to clean up the driver."

    And what about tomorrow? "Keep doing what I'm doing, put the pedal down and try to create a bigger lead."

  10. Post update

    M Wallace -4 (17*)

    Can Matt Wallace keep it together for one more hole?

    His tee shot just stays right of the bunker to the left of the fairway.

  11. Wallace drops another

    M Wallace -4 (17*)

    After seven birdies in eight holes, Matt Wallace has now had two bogeys in the last two.

    A painful end to the round for the Englishman.

  12. Post update

    B Koepka -12, F Molinari E, T Woods +5 (F)

    Rounds of 63 and 65 for Brooks Koepka so far at Bethpage Black. Playing it like this is the easy course...

  13. Koepka's record start

    B Koepka -12

    Iain Carter

    BBC Sport golf correspondent at Augusta National

    This is the lowest 36-hole score in major championship history. Brooks Koepka has played the first two rounds in 128 shots - nobody else has beaten 130 before today.

  14. Koepka stretches lead to seven

    B Koepka -12, F Molinari E, T Woods +5 (F)

    How about that from Brooks Koepka? As cool as you like, straight down the barrel for another birdie that takes him to 12 under par and seven shots clear of the field. Magnificent.

    Tiger Woods finishes with a par, but it's not enough.

    Francesco Molinari also ticks off a par to stay level heading into the weekend.

  15. Woods misses cut

    B Koepka -11, F Molinari E, T Woods +5 (17)

    Tiger needs to attack this to make the cut, he does, but it sizzles on by and Woods will miss the cut.

    That's the sixth time in the last 11 majors he's not made it to the weekend, stretching back to the 2014 US PGA.

    In the 70 before that he only missed four cuts.

  16. Post update

    M Wallace -6 (16*)

    No... This could be the start of a downward spiral for Matt Wallace. His tee shot on the eighth, his 17th, has gone straight in the bunker to the left of the green.
