Jim Furyk kept the pedal down with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his third round of the RBC Canadian Open to secure overnight possession of the 54-hole lead.

Furyk has now gone 50 straight holes without a bogey at Royal Montreal. The only square on his scorecard remains around a 5 at fourth hole on Thursday. He could do no wrong today, as every time things looked to be slipping away he would recover from trouble. The key par save came at the par-4 11th where he overshot the green by 30 yards, only to skip a wedge to 14'1" that he ultimately sank. That was just one of his four putts on the day that were rolled in from outside of nine feet. Furyk currently sits three shots ahead of his nearest competitor, Tim Clark. Because of the threat of inclement weather on Sunday, golfers are scheduled to go out in threesomes off split tees beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET. The final group will begin at approximately 10:00 a.m.

Henrik Stenson smoothed a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in round two of the 98th PGA Championship at Baltusrol on Friday and holds the clubhouse lead of 6-under 134, one shot clear of Martin Kaymer.

Fresh from winning the Open Championship with a startling Sunday 63, Stenson has followed that with twin 67s in New Jersey this week. It means he's firmly on course to become the fourth player in the last 11 years to land the Open-PGA double in the same season (Tiger Woods 2006, Padraig Harrington 2007 and Rory McIlroy 2014 the other three). Stenson swallowed early bogeys at 12 and 13 today but balanced the books with an eagle-3 at 18 after smashing his second (a "flat-out 3-wood") from 258 yards to just 3ft. The Swede rode that momentum with birdies at 1 and 3 and moved into the lead on his own after splashing his 86-yard bunker shot at the 380-yard 8th hole to tap-in range. There's a long way to go but right now Stenson is clear favorite with the bookmakers to win his second straight major.

Patrick Reed twirled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the 98th PGA Championship to reach halftime at 5-under 135, up 34 spots on the live leaderboard to T2, tying the low round of the week with Jimmy Walker/R1, and one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Henrik Stenson.

Making his third appearance with a best of T30 last year at Whistling Straits, the 25-year-old opened with a 70, exchanging four birdies with two bogeys and a double. He squared two bogeys again in R2, but kept the big number off the card, circling seven birdies on 16 greens in regulation to post the low lap of the day in the clubhouse. Reed who began off No. 10 tee, converted four from inside of seven feet, including a walk-off 2 at the ninth from 19 inches, and a long of 41'6" at the par-4 14th.

Martin Kaymer tacked on a 1-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 66 to post 5-under 135 through two rounds of the 98th PGA Championship, good enough for Friday's early clubhouse lead.

Despite finding water with his opening tee shot and making bogey at two of his first three holes, Kaymer ended with a flourish to stay right in contention to win the year's final major for a second time. The German responded to his sticky start with a bounceback birdie-2 at No. 3 although he dropped another shot at 10. But on the Lower Course's gettable closing stretch, the 31-year-old drained 18ft birdie putts at 15 and 16 and signed off with another circle at 18 after wedging his third to inside 5ft. Right now, he's in a four-way tie for the lead with Patrick Reed, Henrik Stenson and Jimmy Walker. On today's morning lap, Kaymer hit 13 greens in regulation for the second round in succession but upped his fairways hit count from 7 to 8 (of 14).

Following a 40-minute weather delay, the second round of the 98th PGA Championship in Springfield, New Jersey, resumed at 8:55 a.m. ET. UPDATE: Afternoon tee times have been pushed back 45 minutes, beginning at 1:00 p.m.

Hopefully, this will be the only interruption, which came at 8:15 a.m.. Officials anticipated a short duration, holding players in position. Colt Knost, making his PGA debut, is in the first threesome of the day off No. 10 tee. He will be hitting his tee shot on the par-4 15th, 2-over-par on his lap and 1-over total after opening in 1-under 69. The 97th-ranked player in the world is currently down 31 spots on the day to T52 and right on the very early projected cut line.

Stephan Jaeger set a Web.com Tour scoring record with a 12-under-par 29-29=58 in the first round of the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae to claim a four-stroke lead.

The glass ceiling is shattered! Jaeger circled 12 birdies and settled for six pars on his lap around TPC Stonebrae, which began on the back nine. As one would expect, the ball-striking was very good. He split 12 of 13 fairways and landed 15 GIR. The putter rolled to the tune of a 1.33 putting average. Currently 102nd on the Web.com Tour money list, he needs to finish this off. A win would place him just inside the top 25 at week's end.

In his first competitive round since winning the Open Championship with a stunning 63, Henrik Stenson hung up a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opener at the 98th PGA Championship.

That's good enough for T5 on the liveboard and means the Swede is lurking just two shots behind first-round pacesetter Jimmy Walker. A tap-in birdie at No. 2 got him under par early although he handed that shot back at the next. He also wiped out a birdie at 6 with a bogey at 9 after missing from just 3 feet but there were no more errors after that and he cashed in on some fine iron play (15 greens in regulation) with birdies at 12, 15 and 18. Stenson split 9 (of 14) fairways on Thursday and his afternoon lap of the Lower Course at Baltusrol was only bettered by Martin Kaymer. He'll now have the chance to go out early on Friday and put himself in position to make a big bid for a second straight major.

Martin Kaymer is just a shot behind first-round leader Jimmy Walker after signing for a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opener at the 98th PGA Championship.

That's by far the best score of the afternoon wave at Baltusrol today and leaves the 2010 PGA champion in T2 alongside morning starters Emiliano Grillo and Ross Fisher. Kaymer circled five birdies and a single bogey in round one after starting from the 10th hole. He launched his move up the leaderboard with a 10'5" conversion at 15 and then added circles on the par 5s at 17 and 18. His only dropped shot came at No. 2 but he nailed birdies either side and closed with six pars after sand saves at 8 and 9. The two-time major winner split 7 (of 14) fairways on the Lower Course today and hit 13 greens in regulation.

Robert Streb styled a bogey-free, 2-under-par 33-35=68 to open his week at the 98th PGA Championship, three strokes shy of the early pacesetter Jimmy Walker.

The Kansas State product found just five (of 14) fairways but still manufactured 13 greens in regulation. Other than a 17'10" par-saver at the opening par-4 first, it was really a stress-free round for Streb. The 29-year-old circled his first birdie at the par-3 ninth, coming as a result of a lengthy 20'10" putt. His second of the day came at the par-4 11th where he stuck his 171-yard approach to 2'2" for a tap-in bird. While Streb didn't circle the most birdies during his opening round, he can take credit for one of just two bogey-free rounds on day one (Russell Henley).
Jul 28 - 6:01 PM

Russell Henley posted a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round at the 98th PGA Championship, good enough for a place inside the top 10.

The American's impressive afternoon lap of Baltusrol puts him just three swings behind pacesetter Jimmy Walker and T8 on the live leaderboard with the afternoon wave starting to finish off. Henley piped 8 (of 14) fairways but was able to hit 15 greens in regulation. The 27-year-old, who was T12 at Whistling Straits in this tournament last year, boarded the par train with a two-putt 4 at the opening hole and stayed on it for the first 15 holes. He finally snapped the sequence with a 3'1" putt at 16 and added another circle with a 19'5" conversion at 17. Henley missed from inside 5 feet at 18 for a walk-off birdie and slapped his putter in frustration but, once the anger has abated, he should be more than pleased with his day's work.

Jimmy Walker bombarded Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course with a 5-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the PGA Championship, giving him early possession of the lead as the morning wave finishes up on Thursday.

Walker split just half of the possible 14 fairways, but managed the course nicely to swallow just one bogey. He opened on the back nine and kicked off his scoring with a 10'2" birdie roll at the par-4 13th hole. Before making the turn, he added three more circles, most notably a 14'9" splash on the par-3 16th. Walker swallowed his lone bogey on his inward nine but offset that with two more birdies and an impressive par save from 13'11" at the par-4 third. The Texan entered with just a 2-for-5 record at the PGA Championship with a T21 and T7 being the highlights. It's only 18 holes, but he's on his way to adding a third top 25 to his PGA resume.
Jul 28 - 1:06 PM

Making his fifth career start in a major, Emiliano Grillo opened the 98th PGA Championship with a 4-under-par 31-35=66 to throw his name into the early mix.

The Argentine entered the week just 138th in strokes gained putting but an 18'7" par-saver at the third hole was just a glimpse of what the round was about to entail. After that lengthy par-saver, he followed it up with a 30'3" birdie bomb at the par-3 fourth and splashed in a 12'2" birdie at the par-4 fifth hole. Overall, he fired in five putts from outside 11 feet. The 23-year-old is always steady, tee-to-green, so if he can maintain anything close to this putting performance, he should remain right in the mix as the week progresses. The recent T12 finish at The 145th Open was his career best in a major but he's now looking to better that just two weeks later.
