Golfer Lahiri tied 33rd at PGA Championship

Golfer Lahiri tied 33rd at PGA Championship

Both men would card over-par third round scores to drop back, but Kisner did enough to remain out in front.

McIlroy said the pain is not almost as severe as in May at the Players Championship when it flared.

"Just sort of have a chat with him about it and see what we need to do going forward. I'll assess my options in the next few days and see where we go from there". "If I get out tomorrow and get off to hopefully a better start, I feel like I'll still be right in this tournament".

"You know, I think today, the No. 1 thing for me was, I didn't really hit a lot of great shots but I didn't really hit a lot of really bad shots", Stroud said.

The Japanese player is bidding to become the first from his country to win a golfing Major and now trails Kevin Kisner by one shot after finishing day three strongly.

"So it's there and I can play 18 holes, as I said, I warm it up, it's okay". "I felt like we took as much time as we needed to at the start of the year, that was basically seven or eight weeks".

McIlroy is no stranger to pulling off the seemingly impossible at Quail Hollow, making the cut on the mark before carding weekend rounds of 66 and 62 to win his maiden PGA Tour title here in 2010. And I worked hard on it.

Meanwhile, overnight leader American Kevin Kisner (four-under 67) was joined by Japanese world No.2 Hideki Matsuyama at the top as the latter charged up the leaderboard with a sensational seven-under 64, reports Efe.

The FedEx Cup playoffs feature four tournaments in five weeks starting on August 24.

Lowry is now the main Irish challenger after a brilliant round that was undone by the weather and a momentary lapse in concentration.

They were tied at a total of eight-under 134 after two rounds. "I said to Harry, 'Let's birdie two of the last three'". You have to be good off the tee and I've done that. "You might not see me until next year", he said on Sunday. "I will fight on and I will work hard and I will stick my head down and I will grind as hard as I can and I will do alright".

The next significant tournament McIlroy is scheduled to play is in two weeks at the Northern Trust, the first FedExCup event, which is being played at Glen Oaks on Long Island. Major championships are often won or lost over the closing nine, and with two of the course's three par 5s on the back, Thomas' confidence should only grow even more.

Asked if he saw a "low one" out there, he said: "Yeah, but I guess a low round used to be a 61 or a 62".

The leaders are not out for another couple of hours but in the meantime there are plenty of players further back hoping to slide up the leaderboard a few places and earn a few extra quid.
