Phil Mickelson misses PGA cut, at captain's mercy for Ryder Cup

Molinari continues rise up US PGA Championship leaderboard

Koepka and Schwartzel match record low score at US PGA Championship

Day, the 2015 US PGA Champion, will have to get hot on the closing stretch to give himself a final-round chance at a second career major title. After the 36-hole cut is made, the third round will be played in threesomes going off both the first and 10th tees.

Also in contention is Kevin Kisner, 15th on the points list and second at Bellerive, just a shot adrift of Woodland - who is 22nd on the points list - but either would make a huge jump with a victory.

Shane Lowry was one of a multitude of golfers up at the crack of dawn in St Louis to finish out his second round in the USPGA Championships.

"After the Open I wanted to do something different, just change the way I thought I on the golf course and he's been brilliant so far". If you do that well, and, obviously, in there you're going to make those putts.

The 14-time major victor was three under for his round to that point and carried on where he left off on Saturday morning, pitching to five feet and holing the putt to improve to four under par.

"Records are meant to be broken, I guess", said Koepka, who needed to drain a 22-footer for birdie at his last hole to grab the record outright. He was helped by a marvellous stroke at the 14th where he pitched in from the back of the green, but the abiding moment was he flew the putting surface once more with a wedge in his hands.

Open champion Francesco Molinari continued his impressive fightback on day two of the 100th US PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club.

"I came right back out and made birdie from 69 yards so it was a nice way to start the morning, but missed two putts at 10 and 12 that I've been been making and that stemmed the momentum a little bit", Woods said. "Sometimes you are in your own mind and don't know where you are at".




Kisner cooled on the second nine and Woodland registered another solid side with birdies on 2 and 3 and a bogey on 4. Outside of a third-place finish at the Masters, the former world No. 1 has lost his mojo for much of the season.

Taking advantage of the marshmallow-soft greens, he hit a series of precise approach shots and converted with the putter to plunder five birdies.

Schwartzel had 30 feet for birdie at his final hole, which would have given him a 62 and matched Branden Grace's low round in a major.

The course is playing shorter than it did in the opening round, including a driveable par-4 on the back nine.

At times he looked and seemed and played younger than his age on a day when he had to play 29 holes in unbearable heat.

If Woods is to win his first tournament anywhere for five years and his first major for double that length, he is going to have to figure out how to improve his scoring on the back nine.

"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", Woods said.

Through 16 holes, Wallace was tied for 20th at five under par.
