Koepka continues to set the pace at PGA Championship

Koepka continues to set the pace at PGA Championship

The 15-time major victor sits at 2 over through nine holes in the second round, which is just one shot clear of the current projected cutline (3 over).

It was the first PGA Championship played in May since 1949, moving from August this year in a revamp of the global golf schedule. He played only nine holes of practice this week, sitting out on the eve of the PGA Championship because he says he was sick.

"So I was freaking out and was telling my wife, 'OK, are we going to open up a Korean barbeque restaurant now?' I've hit a lot of fairways so this has been the key".

The three-time major victor and defending PGA Champion is at 10 under for the tournament at the turn and five shots clear of the field. "I fought my way back and I had two double bogeys in through there and was still able to get it to under par for the day".

Brooks Koepka began his defense of last year's PGA Championship on Thursday.

"My calf is kind of knotted up where it was torn, so I've got to keep working on it to try to loosen it up so it doesn't tear again", Perez said after his round.

Woods overcame a second double-bogey at the par-3 17th, where he was buried in a bunker, by opening his second nine by making two birdies and then by sinking a 31-foot, right-to-left eagle putt at the fourth that put him under par for the first time. "I think I'm still learning, understanding my game, and I've figured it out, and I think over the next few years, I'm excited for what's to come". He didn't birdie his first hole until the 15th hole. I'm happy with where I'm at no matter what the lead is after today.

Jordan Spieth hasn't won a golf tournament since the British Open in July of 2017. "Sometimes it's just about how few bogeys and doubles you make this week".

Berger is best known in these parts for his 66 in the third round at Shinnecock Hills in the U.S. Open a year ago that put him in the final group.

Third-ranked Koepka closed with a 33-foot birdie putt to set a course record and match the lowest round in tournament history.

Woods, who has topped the rankings for a record 683 weeks, also could become world number one for the first time since March 2013 with a victory on the same course where he captured the 2002 US Open.

Koepka, who is seeking a fourth major title in his last eight starts, was among the later starters in a group containing Masters champion Tiger Woods and Open champion Francesco Molinari, who were both nine off the pace after opening rounds of 72. And I thought it was going to be hard to get the ball close to the holes.

He is the ninth player to open a major with 63, and only two of them went on to win: Jack Nicklaus at Baltusrol in the 1980 U.S. Open and Raymond Floyd at Southern Hills in the 1982 PGA Championship. I'm still trying to get the strength back in my legs.
