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.

How finicky is golf? The man who played a near-flawless final round at The Open (Phil Mickelson) is in danger of missing the cut. At the moment Lefty is +3, 1 shot off the cutline with 12 holes to play Friday at the PGA Championship. Others that are in danger of missing the weekend at Baltusrol are Sergio Garcia, Matt Kuchar and Luke Donald. Reigning U.S. Open champion Dustin Johnson, who finished in the top 10 at Troon, will definitely be getting the weekend off after going 77-72 (+9).

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.

Jordan Spieth last month, talking about current leader Emiliano Grillo: "He's one of the best strikers of the golf ball I've ever seen."

Jimmy Walker is playing some seriously solid golf. A birdie at the 8th hole gets him one shot back of the lead at -7 with one big difference. The leader (Emliano Grillo) is playing the back nine first, while Jimmy Walker is on the front nine and still has the easier side to play.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

How is Rory's ball striking today? He's 4-4 on fairways hit and 5-5 on greens. His proximity to the hole is 23' compared to 31' on Thursday. Can the putter get hot?!

Mickelson opens day with shot into street

The five-time major winner's first hole at the PGA Championship Friday also featured a shot by a cart path and one near someone's backyard. See the drama

So far for round 2 the front nine is playing almost a full shot over par while the back nine is playing right on par for the field.

Andy Sullivan now has back to back birdies on the 3rd and 4th holes getting him to within 2 of the lead at -5.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Rory McIlroy finally decides to get in on the birdie action droppin' a nice one at the par three 4th hole. That gets Rory to +3 and one shot from the cut.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Jason Day gives back the birdie he made at the second hole with a bogey at the 3rd hole to fall again to -2 where he started the day.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Phil Mickelson makes a birdie on the 503 yard par 4 3rd hole and is now at +3 one shot away from the cut number.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

The cut has moved to +2 and is in a tie for 65th, now the players at +3 have to hope 17 guys at +2 or better back up to them.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

One thing to keep an eye on will be how bumpy the greens get thru the afternoon. The rain softened them up and guys can fire at flags BUT that also means soft spikes will make them very bumpy as the day goes on.

Jimmy Walker says, "Hey don't forget I'm still Dy-no-mite!" by dropping a birdie at the 5th hole now putting himself one shot back of the lead at -6.

Bob Harig ESPN Senior Writer 

Phil Mickelson hit his opening tee shot out of bounds and was fortunate to find his next one -- as well as his fourth shot which hit a tree. He ended up with a triple-bogey 7 to go to 4 over par in the second round of the PGA Championship. Consider two weeks ago at The Open, Mickelson made just four bogeys for the week.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

BOMB DROPPED by Emiliano Grillo on the 15th hole and he now takes the outright lead at -7!!! He's -3 thru 6 holes playing the back nine and doing exactly what you're supposed to do, go low.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Phil Mickelson with a chance for a bounce back birdie can't convert, but makes his par to steady the ship. Stays at +4 for the PGA.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Rory McIlroy's putting woes continue but they haven't cost him strokes yet. Two hole played four putts and a score of even par keeps him outside the cut at +4 total.

World #1 Jason Day drops a little 360 ring around the Rosie birdie at the 2nd to get to within 3 of the lead at -3

Hey Henrik Stenson, move over a little bit! Emiliano Grillo would like to join you atop the leaderboard at -6!!!
