Kevin Kisner chasing down Woodland at Bellerive


PGA Championship

Gary Woodland maintained his one-shot lead by firing a second round four-under-par 66 at the PGA Championship taking place at Bellerive Country Club in Missouri on Friday.

The American’s 10-under-par 36-hole total of 130 shots is the lowest ever in the history of the season’s fourth major championship.

Woodland’s round consisted of four birdies (2nd, 3rd, 8th, 11th) an eagle on the 17th while he bogeyed the 4th and 14th holes.

A shot back on nine under is American Kevin Kisner, who shot a superb 64 to rocket up the leaderboard. Kisner finished tied-second at the recent Open Championship and tied-seventh at the PGA last year, and seems to be getting closer and closer to a maiden major victory.

Also making a big move was US Open champion Brooks Koepka who shot a second-round 63 to equal the lowest round in tournament history.

Charl Schwartzel of South Africa, who also carded a 63 is next at seven under with American Dustin Johnson (66) and Belgian Thomas Pieters (66).

One back is South Africa’s Brandon Stone after 68.
