US PGA Championship 2018: second round – live!

Russell Henley is fighting hardest to avoid missing the cut. A miserable 74 yesterday, but birdies at 5, 7, 9 and now 14 have catapulted him up the standings to level par. Tommy Fleetwood might yet save himself too: a birdie at 2 brings him back to +1, just above the current projected cut line, whatever illustrative purpose that might serve. But big Chris Wood is going the wrong way, and quickly: bogey at 1, followed by a double at 4, and he’s slipped to +4. A disappointing showing after a decent Open Championship.

Kevin Kisner birdies 18! He’s played the back-nine holes in 29 strokes, and hits the turn leading the 100th PGA Championship! Up ahead, Brooks Koepka and Francesco Molinari both birdie 1. And back down 18, Rose overshoots the green with his approach, and can only flop back up the hill onto the fringe. His attempt to save par bobbles, and that’s a bogey that drops him to -3. He looks highly irritated, having changed his mind about which club to use from the fairway; that’s cost him. Spieth however wedges to 15 feet; he’ll have a look at birdie. But he can’t make it, his putt drifting off to the left. He remains at -1, eight off the lead.

-9: Kisner (9*)
-8: Woodland (9*)
-6: Stone (14*)
-5: Koepka (10*), Molinari (10*), Fowler
