Scheffler arrrested and released, Schauffele Leads

A most unusual day

Day 2 at the PGA Championship was as surreal as it comes.

At 0500 (local time), John Mills, confirmed by the PGA of America as “a worker" at the tournament, was fatally hit by a shuttle bus at the front of the club. Roughly an hour later, Scottie Scheffler was detained for reckless driving and disregarding the signals of an officer while trying to make his tee time.

Xander Schauffele remains on top. He teed the day off three strokes ahead, but this was evaporated by Collin Morikawa recording an incredible run of five consecutive birdies on his back nine, a 6- under 65 putting him top earlier in the day.

Schauffele, however, quickly regained the leadership going into his back nine and will go intro the weekend at 12-under.

2020 champion Morikawa, goes into Saturday a shot clear of Sahith Theegala and two strokes clear of Bryson DeChambeau, Mark Hubbard, Scottie Scheffler and Thomas Detry.

"When you haven't won in a few years, you have to be pretty resilient," said Schauffele, "It's a really good start to a tournament. I'm playing some really nice golf. That's kind of it."
Tiger Woods struggled; tumbling like a stone down the leaderboard after a pair of triple bogeys to miss the cut.


The three most recent U.S. Open champions (Wyndham Clark +4, Matt Fitzpatrick EVEN and Jon Rahm EVEN) all failed to hit the -1 cut line going into the weekend.

Ludvig Aberg, by far the closest challenegr to Scheffler's 2024 Masters triumph and one of the heavil fancied challengers finished at even par.
