Walker takes lead at WGC as McIlroy finds a birdie

  • Japan star fulfilling promise with big victory

McIlroy began the day three shots off the pace but made the ideal start with three birdies in the first six holes to trail Matsuyama by one.

Walker, who hasn't lifted a trophy since making his major breakthrough at last year's PGA Championship, hasn't contended on the big stage this year.

CHAMPIONS: Paul Goydos shot a tourney-record 60 to tie Kenny Perry (65) and Gene Sauers (64) at 12-under 130 for a one-shot lead after two rounds of the 3M Championship in Blaine, Min. Goydos, who shot 59 at the PGA's 2010 John Deere Classic, was 7 under through 12 holes, before birdies at 15, 16 and 17 and eagle on the par-5 18th. This week and beyond, the consensus is growing that although others will no doubt intrude from time to time on their private party, it is these...

"Once we got back out there after the delay, I think everybody felt a little flat", said the Northern Irishman. "I just need to see a couple of putts drop". "I reside here my kids go to school here and it would be a lot less travel for me - I love playing golf here".

Alone in third place one stroke behind the leaders is Scott Hend, who shot a 63 for the low round of the day.

"I really scrambled nicely, and made a couple of really long putts back-to-back in the middle of the round that put us at three (under) when I felt like I played a one or two-under round", said Spieth, victor of his last two events.

Walker edged ahead of overnight leader Thomas Pieters of Belgium when he rolled in an eight footer for birdie at the 15th.

Michael Jordan's take on LeBron-Kobe debate: '5 beats 3'
When it comes to evaluating greatness, Michael Jordan - as you'd expect - puts a great deal of weight into championships. Michael Jordan has one simple math lesson for all his campers in San Francisco this week: Five is better than three.


Pieters, who is from Belgium and played college golf at the University of IL, made five early birdies to vault into the lead after eight holes, but he stalled from there and parred 11 holes the rest of the way.

"Anywhere I have a chance to win I'll definitely take it", said Pieters, who has won three times on the European Tour.

Johnson is bidding for his first victory since he won the British Open in 2015. "I haven't had too many this year".

But from 250 yards away the big-hitting Belgian fired his approach onto the green to set up a two-putt birdie, before nearly spinning his approach to the third back into the hole. I gave myself plenty of chances on the back nine.

In weather that turned out better than expected - only one heavy shower - Kim shot a bogey-free 66 by converting a string of birdie putts.

But he appeared to tweak his troublesome back, and had two bogeys and a birdie coming in.
