Omar Uresti shot a 70 and was at 2-over 144.

Rory McIlroy, a two-time victor at Quail Hollow and the betting favorite to end his three-year drought in the majors, was cruising right along until a three-hole stretch on the back nine when two poor chips and one tee shot into the water cost him three shots.

Jordan Spieth was eager to look for positives after his bid to win the PGA Championship was ended by a level-par 71 in the third round at Quail Hollow.

He and Kisner, who earlier fired a near-flawless 67, are two strokes ahead of Australian Jason Day (66), back in form after a recent flat patch.

Louis Oosthuizen shakes his right arm in discomfort after hitting a shot at the second hole while standing awkwardly against a tree. "Maybe that kind of relaxed mindset is working out for the better", Matsuyama said. The PGA I think is going to be the toughest for me. I think that was the big key for me today.

He added, "My hitting from tee to green was very good and it has been so of late, but I have not made much on the greens. I'm definitely picking it up", the world No. 3 said. I feel like I'm swinging it really well. When I got out here, my dream was to win. I've got to make up ground.

So what time will the third round at Quail Hollow begin on Saturday?

"The greens are very hard". "It doesn't matter how long the putts is, it's hard".

On Friday, putting woes continued to accompany Lahiri and they dragged him into a danger zone. When you have it going, you have it going. "Unless you are in a flawless location, your putt has to be absolutely ideal". With three par-5s you need to score on them, fortunately I birdied the 15th when I got to 12 feet with my first two shots and the eagle putt hung onto the lip but it was still a birdie.

After Jordan Spieth finished play Friday afternoon at 3-over par for the tournament and 11 strokes behind the co-leaders, he said, "I kind of accept the fact I'm essentially out of this tournament pending some form of insane stuff the next couple of days".

"I'm probably not playing as well as I did at the end of previous year".

Former world number one and 2015 US PGA champion Jason Day was two shots behind Matsuyama and Kisner after 14 holes of his second round.

He came close to finishing with three straight birdies when his putt for a three on the par-four ninth stopped on the edge over the cup.

Tommy Fleetwood, Lee Westwood and Dustin Johnson also made the cut for the weekend, but there were a few major casualties on an intermittent day's play.
