THERE were some really good rounds yesterday at Quail Hollow but also some bad ones.
Kevin Kisner has played some solid golf (67-67) over the first two rounds and Hideki Matsuyama kept his form from last week with a sizzling 64 on Friday.
It is also good to see Francesco Molinari up there (T4) after hitting a 64 and pleased to see one of my picks Rickie Fowler still in with a chance.
Unfortunately some of the big names have all struggled this week including Rory McIlroy (+2), Dustin Johnston (+2) and Open winner Jordan Spieth (+3).
As there are some interesting threeballs today I thought I'd put up some selections
Threeball of Thorbjorn Olesen, Lee Westwood and David Lingmerth looks interesting. Olesen started with a super 67 but a horrendous 78 yesterday will have shaken his confidence. Not much to pick between the other two but I’ll go with Westwood.
In next group of Ian Poulter, Jamie Lovemark and Jordan Smith looks very close but I’m going with Lovemark to pip the two Englishmen.
American Daniel Summerhays came back with a bang yesterday with a 67 but the other American in this threeball, Tony Finau hit a 74, so I’m going for Swede Alex Noren to win this group.
I’m also going with one of my picks to win the PGA, Brooks Koepka, to overcome playing partners Sung Kang and Grayson Murray.
Mr Fixit was too busy with football to put up US PGA tips but I know he's on his favourite Matsuyama and took Daniel Summerhays as a 250-1 ew long shot so good luck there.
