Golf’s rules have already altered one of this year’s major championships, and golf bureaucracy may have cost players a shot at making the cut at the PGA Championship, so you can forgive Jordan Spieth for being veeeeery careful with the application of rules on Friday afternoon. Spieth’s tee shot at the 7th hole, the 16th Spieth had played, drifted right, right, right into about an inch of water. Spieth was entitled to relief of some sort, but what?
The PGA Championship has reached its halfway point, and here’s what we know: nothing. 63! Just days after Henrik Stenson shot a 63 to win the British Open and Phil Mickelson just missed a 62, Robert Streb fired a 63 to put himself into a tie for the lead at the PGA Championship. Jimmy Walker Day 2: For the second day in a row, Jimmy Walker held a share of the lead at a major, and he did so by tying the 36-hole major scoring record.
