US PGA: Scott, Day in the mix during round one

US PGA: Scott, Day in the mix during round one

While Olesen and Kisner shared the lead with 67 each, there were five players at three-under 68 in Tied-3rd.

So it was critical the "heavies" made the most of the opening round.

Championship favourite Rory McIlroy certainly found it tough going, with four bogeys in a five-hole stretch on his back nine, before two late birdies reversed some of the damage.

Spieth said: "Given it's the first round I know I'm still in it but I've got to make up ground".

So what's a good game plan for the world No. 2 heading into the second round? "And there's a lot of putts that honestly, I'm not trying to make". "One of the reasons I played so well here usually is there's no rough, and (now) there's some very severe rough". On his outward journey, he had three bogeys in a row from No. 3 but made up for them with consecutive birdies on his last three holes.

The Quail Hollow golf course won't have Phil Mickelson to kick around anymore this weekend. But if they are not playing from the fairway, I wouldn't want to be doing it. ...

Trump to Guam: 'Don't worry about a thing'
The compounding threats came in a week in which longstanding tensions between the countries risked abruptly boiling over. Mr Trump has said he would not allow Pyongyang to develop a nuclear weapon capable of hitting the United States.

"The greens are so firm, you can't control your spin". "However, I'm riding the momentum from the round that I had on Sunday, and again, hopefully I can keep that going for 36 more holes". "That's already set. It's more so in between the ears, making sure I make the right decisions and not get ahead of myself".

"I'm just excited about the opportunity", he said. "Hopefully he slows down a little bit and gives the rest of us a chance but I still feel I'm there".

"On the range I'm having some of the best sessions, swinging the club fine, hitting it pretty good and yet I'm not controlling my thought process out there".

"Coming in with some short irons into these greens was definitely the key to the round". But after a scorching second round (he shot a five-under 66 to reach six under) he's hot on the heels of the leaders.

Teeing off on the 10th, Smith rolled in for birdie from eight feet and when he did likewise from 16 foot on the 13th, the major championship rooke was incredibly within two strokes of teh top of the leaderboard. "I'm just hitting it in the wrong spots". But I felt like I was playing very well, and felt like at the Open I came into that week with a lot of confidence because my game was in such good shape.

The idea is I have to get rid of negativity and also not be over enthusiastic in cases like back-to-back birdies or similar.
