Kevin Kisner extends the lead at the PGA Championship

Watch Rory McIlroy pull off the most remarkable shot, and par, of the PGA Championship

Kisner, McIlroy start early as PGA Championship resumes

Golf great Nick Faldo has slammed Jason Day's "crazy" decision that capped off a third-round implosion at the US PGA Championship.

Now, it has the trappings of a shootout.

Kisner, a US PGA Tour victor three months ago at Colonial, shared the 18-hole lead with Denmark's Thorbjorn Olesen, who was four-over halfway into his second round. Then the storms arrived, and everything changed.

Kevin Kisner will take a one-shot lead into the final day of the US PGA Championship after a one-over-par 72 in his third round at Quail Hollow.

Molinari has done virtually everything in golf including capturing a WGC title winning the World Cup of Golf with his brother Edoardo and late previous year denying Masters Champion, Danny Willett to win his home Italian Open for a second time in his career.

With the projected cut now sitting at four-over, Scott is flirting with an early exit from the PGA Championship.

"I was grateful for the rain delay because I was getting exhausted", Matsuyama said.

Pre-championship favourite Rory McIlroy was also out of contention, 11 back. He said anyone who broke 70 was going great. He shot a two-over 74 and finished 11 over, not close to making the cut. And now he's not sure what it will take.

"I've been upset with how I've played in the majors so far in my career", he said.

Matsuyama has more experience on the big stage.

He found his putting touch last week when he shot 61 in the final round to win at Firestone, and he is riding that momentum. I am trying not to compound errors and it was good today, but this was the first tournament since we worked on that aspect in the last couple of weeks.

"I was hitting the ball OK but my scrambling was woeful", he said. His play started to shine through and his enjoyment of the game returned.

"It was more gettable after the rain delay than it was before, no doubt about it", Spieth said. "(No.) 18 is just a ridiculously hard hole today".

"I'm probably not playing as well as I did at the end of previous year".

Mickelson's record of not having missed a PGA cut since 1995 is now in danger.

He put himself in position to supplant Tiger Woods as the youngest player ever to complete a collection of the four major professional titles by winning last month's British Open after his 2015 wins at the Masters and U.S. Open. Now, he wonders how much longer is season will last.

"The important thing is to give myself an opportunity to win", he added. He has managed only four birdies in 36 holes. Perhaps just as impressive, one of the tour's fastest players wasn't fazed by playing with two of the, well, not fastest players. "Onto the weekend to try and fire at stuff". The round was later stopped by darkness, and the final 25 players will complete their rounds on Saturday.

American world No. 10 Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas and Englishman Paul Casey shared the seventh spot at 139 total. It's the sixth consecutive year that the PGA Championship has been halted due to a suspension of play because of inclement weather, a key factor in the PGA's decision earlier this week to move the tournament to May in 2019.
