Dustin Johnson flexes his muscles while the big hitters take the reins of the US PGA Championship. UU

Dustin Johnson followed his opening 67 with a 66, leaving him at -7 for the championship

If you want to know why the fairways will be tight in the Ryder Cup next month and the difficult ones, look at what happened on the second day of the 100th PGA Championship in the USA. UU In Bellerive.

Give the heavy artillery of the United States generous objectives from the tee and tempting positions in the holes, and they are in their element.

The No. 1 in the world, Dustin Johnson, the champion of the US Open. UU Brooks Koepka and Gary Woodland, perhaps the greatest hitter of all, flexed their muscles in this typical example of field golf and took aim.

Fair play for the brave Kevin Kisner of South Carolina, therefore, he managed to keep pace with this trio of monstrous slugs despite being a modest 142nd in driving distance this season.

The brave 34-year-old, who finished tied for second at the Open last month, outstripped his weight once again with a fine 64.

He finished just one shot behind his playmate, bar stool mate and midway leader Woodland, who followed his own 64 on day one with a 66 for a total of 10 under par.

"We come from range, we are friends for life and if I could reach it 350 yards from the tee like him, well, what a different game it would be," Kisner said.

Just below them, with eight points less, is the dangerous Koepka, who became the fifteenth man in the history of the PGA Championship to shoot 63. In turn, is one step ahead of his great friend Johnson.

In the US Open, it was Koepka who was placed between the first two and it would not be a surprise if they tried again.

Koepka said: "When you think about where I was in April and having to lose to the Masters because of a wrist injury, winning two majors in the same season would be incredible."

Johnson, who scored a major and a ton of near miss in his c.v., activated the afterburners to play the last nine in 31 shots. "I'm definitely behind that second commander," said the 34-year-old. "It's time to turn one of these opportunities that I give myself."

The Europeans? They are not out of it, with Open champion Francesco Molinari five points off the pace after 67 and Jon Rahm in the same mark after 68.

"I feel like I'm in a position similar to Carnoustie because I had to work over the weekend and I managed to do it, so let's hope for something similar," Molinari said.

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the opening day was the 67 that Rose managed to evoke even though her preparations were attacked by an annoying complaint.

The 38-year-old moved much more freely on Friday, as he prepared to take advantage of his winnings.

The previous interruption seemed more revealing on this occasion, unfortunately, since he made many more mistakes than usual. Even in a course that offers many opportunities for birdie it is difficult to keep up if four bogeys accumulate, and the English had to settle for a total of 69 and a total of four under par, which leaves him enough to catch up.

Of course, since he was on Tuesday, when he had trouble walking nine holes here, let alone playing a full shot, it has been a tremendous effort that says a lot about his strength.

Taking into account that he went from just making the cut in the Open to finish in second place, he will not abandon his possibilities yet.

Among the first starters, the best performance of the 14-strong English contingent came from Matt Wallace, who shot 66 after benefiting from seeing a sports psychologist for the first time. The 28-year-old Londoner won twice this season but also missed his last four cuts.

It looked like it was going to be a weird missing cut for Tommy Fleetwood when he was out of the mark on one over par with two holes to play, but two successive birdies to finish meant he was safe.

Playing alongside Kisner and Woodland, Sergio Garcia cut a figure understandably dejected. His fights continued when a 71 left him in a final, with the court mark projected on the par level.

That meant he was looking through the barrel of a missed cut in the four majors this year, and leaving the captain of the Ryder Cup, Thomas Bjorn, contemplating a terrible dilemma over whether he would grant him a wild card.
