US PGA Championship 2019: second round – live!

May 17, 2019 Off By readly




Here’s a little succour for the folk chasing down Brooks Koepka. The defending champion may have shot 63 yesterday, a near-faultless display only blighted by three missed short putts that could have turned the spectacular into something borderline outlandish. But that doesn’t mean he’s a shoo-in to retain his title quite yet.

Koepka became the ninth player to shoot 63 in the first round of a major. Of the last eight, only two have gone on to win the tournament, Jack Nicklaus at the 1980 US Open, and Ray Floyd at the 1982 PGA. So there is hope for the chasing pack. Although given that Koepka’s last four rounds at the PGA are 63, 66, 66 and 63, hope is a relative concept. Here’s how the leaders stand:

-7: Koepka
-6: Lee
-3: Fleetwood
-2: Lorenzo-Vera, Reavie, List, Kang, Perez
-1: Fowler, Wallace, Cantlay, D Johnson, Spieth, Mickelson, Day, Kim
