Darby, the caddy for Abbotsford’s Nick Taylor was hoping that the 10 or so players who could affect the cutline of top 70 and ties would just keep making pars and keep Taylor alive as he chases a high finish in his first Major as a professional.
 
Darby is staying in Green Bay, 50 minutes away, and is hoping to make that drive a couple more times this weekend.

Hiroshi Iwata isn’t even the second most famous Japanese golfer to Japanese journalists. The travelling crew of reporters have been asking all about Hideki Matsuyama this week and for years, Ryo Ishikawa has been their great hope.
 
But Iwata carded a course record (-9) 63 at Whistling Straits on Friday, just one day after shooting a (+5) 77. Now at (-4) 140, Iwata has played himself back into the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, but that’s not why he was the centre of attention on Friday.
