Rory McIlroy's birdie attempt on the par-4 seventh hole comes up just short on the low side. He's right on the cut line at 2 over (T-70) but has played the more difficult front side so far in 2 under at the PGA Championship. A couple more birdies before he gets to the closing back-to-back par-5s could yield a weekend tee time for the Northern Irishman.

Billy Hurley III skipped The Open at Royal Troon so he could attend his sister's wedding. How big a deal is that? Well, the man who served in the Navy in the Persian Gulf (among other places) has only played in four majors in his career. This week's PGA Championship is his fifth and he's never finished higher than T-48 (at the 2014 U.S. Open.) Through seven holes in Round 2 at Baltusrol, Hurley is T-30, 1 under overall but has jumped 51 places on the leaderboard so far on Friday.
