Spieth charges after career Slam, Koepka still leads

Even John Daly isn't a fan of John Daly using a cart at this week's PGA Championship

On the PGA Championship stage, we're finally seeing a version of Jordan Spieth who looks like he can win anywhere - even a monster like Bethpage Black. But he then bogeyed three of the next four holes, also sloppy - two three putts and a poor chip that led to another bogey. That gave him a 72, leaving him nine shots behind and ending 12 consecutive rounds at par or better in the majors dating to the U.S. Open last summer.

"I've never been this confident, " said Koepka, 29, who has won three major championships in the past two years and came up a shot short against Tiger Woods last month at the Masters.

Of those who have completed their second rounds at the Long Island course in NY state, three-time major victor Jordan Spieth shot a four-under 66 to set the clubhouse target on five under, still two behind Koepka. Sixteen players broke par, the fewest after the opening round of the PGA Championship since 2008 at Oakland Hills.

Later, when surveying Koepka's course record of 7-under 63, Woods said his opponent had posted "probably the highest score he could have shot today".

Only two of eight prior players who fired major-opening 63s won titles, Jack Nicklaus at the 1980 US Open and Ray Floyd at the 1982 PGA. After the first round, he sat nine strokes behind the leaders, just as he sits nine holes behind Koepka entering play on Friday. I think over the next few years, I'm excited for what's to come.

After finding the rough on his first hole of the day, Woods ended up hitting 10 of 14 fairways.

"This golf course you can't (force it)".

"Fought my way back and got it under par for the day", Woods said.

Seeing Woods walk alongside Koepka on Thursday provided a stark contrast.

Koepka drained a 33-footer for birdie on his final hole to cap his round. "I guess that would have been pretty good". This is his first tournament since Augusta, and he's had to carefully moderate how much golf his 43-year-old body can handle, especially after four back surgeries. Again. It was a decent drive but it's left and you just can not miss the fairways here. SMH. I'm still trying to get the strength back in my legs.

Koepka credited a 40-foot birdie putt at the par-4 10th hole, his first hole of the day, with setting the tone for his impressive round.

World number one Dustin Johnson (66) was joined on four-under by fellow American Daniel Berger (66). He was playing his brand of golf, and making a whole bunch of clutch putts to go with it. So he had to notice Tuesday when his appearance at a PGA Championship news conference was greeted by the sight of journalists scrambling out of the room like newspaper reporters - with press cards tucked in their fedoras - racing for a bank of pay phones in an old, black-and-white film. "He's got nine-irons when most of us are hitting five-irons, four-irons, and he's putting well".

"It's Bethpage, you know, I feel like there's going to be more bogeys than birdies out here", said Day.
