They continue to rock and skip to Brooks Koepka. The closing time for drunkards may be greater than those who want to take down this great specialist. The 29-year-old has two rounds to complete a successful defense of the US PGA Championship. Copeka's lead, which currently stands at seven, has not been seriously threatened at any stage in the first 36 holes in Bethpage. This brings all the scars of the sporting procession.
Danger – and many of it – caught up with Tiger Woods. The 43-year-old, on his first start after winning the Masters, suffered from the disgrace of the missed corner. It marked only the ninth time in his career that he only continued until Friday night of Major. A second round of 73 meant a Woods aggregate of five. In fact, he was careless all the time. Woods bowed; others worshiped Copeka 12 under par.
He would add Woods' disappointment to the fact that, as Copeka's partner, he had such a close look at a player who torn Bettype. By the 28th hole of his tournament, Koepka had to give up the hit, as the 13th would be able to repair the damage. By the end of the game, Koepka's 128 strokes – 65 of them on Friday – set a big record for the championship. Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott and Luke List are the closest contenders if such a term is valid. Koepka in this mood is just invincible. Bethpage? Brookspage.
The retiring Spieth added a round of 66 to Thursday 69 to move to five under Par.
The story is on Spieth's side even if the touch of Koepka is certainly not; in the previous three cases, when he opened reversal circles in the 1960s, he won.
"I feel like I play as I say, which is good," Spite said. – I have not participated in the race since last year's Open. If I can do a good job tomorrow, then I will be on Sunday. At this point, this will be an attempt to win a golf tournament. It does not matter to me what this tournament is.
Scott was firing at Spite, and shortly in four of Koepka. The Australian, stubborn with woes for so much of her career, missed a 2-foot mark for her 17th straight. Scott, however, still had reason to settle for 64 and a coincidence of Spite's total.
Additional gloss of the rankings was provided by Dustin Johnson, who is four on par. Justin Rose is one of the world's No1 after 67.
Rory McIulroy, playing his first three Friday holes in five over par, headed for the first missed for 14 months. Instead, the Northern Irishman responded with a great fashion over the closure. Nine of McIlroy's 31s mean a total of 73 plus three, which ensures that it will remain for the 36-hole closure.
So what was the motivation to get back after such a tough start? "Just proud," said Makilroy. "I'm just trying to play golf and try to get something that's best of my own. I do not like missing cuts. It's not something I used to be happy about and wanted to be around the weekend.
At the 10th, the sixth, McIulroy has an attenuating circumstance. The hole proved difficult for many players when they started tournaments this week. "You go from the range, and then you get into a car and you will not hit for 25 minutes," added 10th Tea Makiroy, who may also be in Toronto.
Jason Day, playing with McIlroy, added 74 to his first round of 69. The third member of this group, Phil Mickelson, will start the third round of an equal number after Friday.
John Daly's American PGA is not surprisingly halfway out. More remarkable than the 11-fold number of the Daily was the fact that he used the golf cart to negotiate for Bethpage because of the continuing problems with his right knee. Whether he has requested permission to have the same kind of transport at Portrush for the Opening Championship in July. "We received a request from John Daley for permission to use the buggy on" Open "and we are currently discussing," said a spokesman for R & A. This is not a desperate desire to help the champion since 1995. Whether he is ready to pass the situation to travel to Northern Ireland remains to be seen.
Ian Poulter, Sergio García and Padraig Harrington were among those who followed Daly on Long Island. "I'll give Z for preparation," Harrington said. Benjamin Franklin nodded in agreement with the big club in the sky.
