"I will try to improve on the weekend and try to get a couple of scores under par".

"I like looking at leaderboards seeing what the cut line is and where I am, so I was looking all the way around and it was nice to see my name up there with the big guys".

SLAMMED: Three weeks after Spieth got the third leg of the Grand Slam by winning the British Open, his putting stroke hasn't helped him at Quail Hollow.

Only 17 players are under par on the tough Quail Hollow course that features length and demands accuracy off the tee to set up approaches to greens with crowned tops. "I just need to continue to do what we've been doing".

"To be the man, you gotta beat the man, baby", Flair said in the video.

Followed by a huge gallery that included swimming great Michael Phelps, Spieth drove the ball well but could not convert his accuracy off the tee into more than a handful of birdie chances.

Quail Hollow played to an average score of 74.7, making the PGA Championship look like the toughest test of the year in the majors.

"I didn't expect it to be down there", he said with a degree of understatement. "I had good position, I just didn't take advantage of my opportunities".

"I felt bad about it. I can stand up and putt like I've grown up doing". The American then took advantage of the other nine, posting four birdies and a bogey to finish three-under.

"Coming in with some short irons into these greens was definitely the key to the round".

Olesen has won four times on the European Tour, including once in each of the past three seasons, but he's still searching for his first win of 2017.

Fowler shot a 1-under 70 early on Friday and was tied for seventh place (3-under 139) when play was suspended due to darkness.

David Duval, who is also part of the Golf Channel team, said Koepka is on a roll and is the player to beat. "I had a shaky start but as the round progressed things became better".

"But it was just a very good roll". This is where he recorded his first PGA Tour victory, when he was on the verge of missing the cut until an eagle on his 16th hole got him into the weekend. As he was wrapping up his round, he saw a leaderboard that showed Kevin Kisner at 8 under for the tournament, and suddenly McIlroy's bid to end a three-year drought in the majors became that much more hard.
