Jason Day just played his last nine holes in 7-under 26. That's right, 26.

Jimmy Walker bogeys his last hole of the day. That'll make dinner taste a little worse, as the saying goes. But it's still a 65-66 start for him and he leads by two right now.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

This is getting a little ridiculous now. Jason Day has posted seven birdies in his last eight holes. He's now 7-under for the tournament, moving all the way up to a share of second place, behind only Jimmy Walker.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Jason Day on Wednesday: "I'm not coming into this week expecting a lot." Ah, the ol' "underpromise and overdeliver" strategy.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

That's 6-for-7 now for Jason Day. Decent little birdie percentage.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Jason Day made headlines this week when he said Wednesday morning that he still hadn't stepped foot on any of Baltusrol's holes yet. Apparently that hasn't hurt him much. The defending champion has birdied five of his last six holes and is now in a share of fifth place at 5-under.

Jimmy Walker is now at 10-under. In eight previous men's professional majors at Baltusrol, no player has finished double-digits under par.

Jimmy Walker is now at 10-under. In eight previous men's professional majors at Baltusrol, no player has finished double-digits under par.

And there's the turkey for Jimmy Walker. Three straight birdies and he's starting to make Baltusrol look like a walk in the park. Walker is now 10-under, the first player to reach double-digits all week.

Another hole, another birdie for Jimmy Walker. He'd been struggling earlier this year, but he's making it look easy so far this week. He's now posted four birdies without a bogey through 13 holes and leads the PGA by a stroke.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Long birdie by Jimmy Walker on the 12th hole moves him back into a share of the lead with Emiliano Grillo at 8-under, two shots clear of the next closest player.

Mickelson opens day with shot into street

Phil Mickelson started with triple-bogey, made two birdies, then had a short putt on No. 9 to shoot even on the front -- and missed it. That's totally Mickelsonian.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

World No. 1 Jason Day just played his front-nine in even-par 34. It was more excited than it sounds, though. Day carded three birdies, but those were offset by a double-bogey and a bogey. He currently stands at 2-under, six shots off the lead.
