Not the case with Kevin Kisner, who holed his third from off the green for eagle at the seventh, his 16th, to extend his lead to four over joint overnight leader Thorbjorn Olesen, who had yet to start.

And also looking to become a first Italian-born victor of a Major is the long-time London-based Francesco Molinari. I said, 'OK, I'll bounce it up and see where it goes.' Luckily it got out of the bunker and on to the other side. "I feel like I have the game to compete in majors, and tons of 30th- to 40th-, 50th-place finishes".

The three major champions this year - Sergio Garcia (Masters), Brooks Koepra (US Open), and Jordan Spieth (The Open) share another common denominator - they have six letters in their Christian name, and six in their surname.

"I'm just excited about the opportunity". "I've hit some good shots and some loose shots".

That he managed to hang in and finish at one-over 72 gave him ample confidence that he was in for better things in the second round when he plays in the morning.

Coming off his second World Golf Championships victory last week after shooting a record-tying final-day 61 at the Bridgestone Invitational, Matsuyama credited his improved putting for Friday's score.

Jason Day (77), who was in the final group, is at par 213, a stunning drop from contention with a quadruple-bogey eight on the last hole.

"I don't know if it's the new putter I'm using, but the greens here are really fast and I'm not expecting my putts to fall".

Italian Francesco Molinari matched Matsuyama's bogey-free 64 Friday by orchestrating his way around the course with five birdies and an eagle to get to five under for the tournament. "That's already set. It's more so in between the ears, making sure I make the right decisions and not get ahead of myself".

STAT OF THE DAY: This is the fourth time 2010 British Open victor Louis Oosthuizen has been fourth or better through 54 holes at a major.

TELEVISION: Sunday, 11 a.m. -2 p.m. (TNT), 2-7 p.m. (CBS).

His drive at the 301-yard 14th hits the hole for what would have been a rare albatross at a par-four.

McGirt will stay in the Tar Heel state for next week's Wyndham Championship in Greensboro at Sedgefield Country Club.

Matsuyama feasted on soft conditions Friday evening after a rain delay halted play for almost two hours, but the track he faced in the third round was viewed by many players as more reminiscent of a U.S. Open host site than a PGA Championship venue.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina-Hideki Matsuyama has broad shoulders but is not finding it easy to carry the weight of an entire nation as he seeks to become the first Japanese man to win a major.
