Los Angeles Times - - GOLF: PGA CHAMPIONSHIP -

A brief look at the sec­ond round of the PGA Cham­pi­onship:

LEAD­ING: Kevin Kis­ner and Hideki Mat­suyama, who both were at eight-un­der 134.

JUST BE­HIND: Ja­son Day shot a 66 to pull two strokes be­hind the co-lead­ers.

COME BACK SATUR­DAY: Play was sus­pended due to dark­ness with some two dozen play­ers still on the course. They will fin­ish Satur­day morn­ing, with the third round start­ing af­ter­ward.

QUEST FOR THE SLAM: Jor­dan Spi­eth shot a 73 to fall to three over, 11 strokes be­hind the co-lead­ers. He all but con­ceded he will have to wait until next year to go for the mile­stone.

MAK­ING THE CUT: For only the sec­ond time in six years, at least one club pro will make the cut. Omar Uresti shot a 70 and was at two-over 144.

NOTE­WOR­THY: The course played to an av­er­age score of 73.5 — more than a full stroke lower than dur­ing Round 1.

QUOTEWORTHY: “Prob­a­bly 54 would be nice.” — Spi­eth, on what he thinks he must shoot to get back to con­tention.
