CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A brief look at the second round of the PGA Championship (all times EDT):

LEADING: Kevin Kisner and Hideki Matsuyama, who both were at 8-under 134.

JUST BEHIND: Jason Day shot a 66 to pull two strokes behind the co-leaders.

COME BACK SATURDAY: Play was suspended due to darkness with some two dozen players still on the course. They will finish Saturday morning, with the third round starting afterward.

QUEST FOR THE SLAM: Jordan Spieth shot a 73 to move to 3 over, 11 strokes behind the co-leaders. He all but conceded it will have to wait until next year.

SHOT OF THE DAY: Rory McIlroy’s third shot on the par-5 10th hole. With the ball settled in the rough of the 11th hole, McIlroy skipped his shot along the cart path into and out of the bunker, across the green and onto the fringe. He saved par two putts later.

MAKING THE CUT: For just the second time in six years, at least one club pro will make the cut. Omar Uresti shot a 70 and was at 2-over 144.

NOTEWORTHY: The course played to an average score of 73.5 — more than a full stroke lower than during Round 1.

QUOTEWORTHY: “Probably 54 would be nice.” — Spieth, on what he thinks he must shoot to get back to contention.

TELEVISION: Saturday, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. (TNT), 2-7 p.m. (CBS).
