“The crowds have been massive, which is awesome. So it's good to have that energy out there as well. I probably didn't play as well as I did yesterday top to bottom, but the iron game really kept me in it today. I got a little wayward with a couple of drives and hit a lot of good putts that didn't go in. I can live with that.”

The American fired a 66 to take his record low-total to a ten under par 130, one shot clear of countryman Kevin Kisner.

“I'm pretty aware with it. I knew I was playing well," said Kisner, "and I had made a few birdies, but no, I hit it great on that, well, our second nine and just didn't hole any putts.

“I've made a bunch of cuts and competed in Majors, I just haven't, until recently, haven't competed, had a chance to win and that's been our goal going forward and I like my position going to the weekend.”

Two-time defending US Open champion Brooks Koepka was eight under after equalling the lowest round in US PGA Championship history with a 63, a feat matched by South Africa's Charl Schwartzel who was a shot further back.

“Played really well," said Koepka. "I feel like yesterday I played really well too and sometimes you don't really score very well. I think the double we had, we hit a six-iron, great six-iron, the wind just kind of switched on us and that happens. But today I drove it beautifully, my wedges distance control is very spot on, and making the putts, making those five, six footers that you need to make.”

Belgian Thomas Pieters and World Number One Dustin Johnson were also in the clubhouse at seven under alongside Rickie Fowler, who had played ten holes when the horn sounded at 3.35pm local time and brought the players off for the day.

“It was good at the end. I played my back nine really well. I drove it a lot better though on the back nine," said Johnson. "I just didn't hit very good drives on the front nine which is the back side, but still felt like I was swinging well, especially with the irons. I still hit a lot of good shots, I had a lot of good looks at birdie on the back nine, just didn't make any. And made the turn there and had some good looks and rolled a few in on the last seven holes.”

Play will resume at 7.00am on Saturday with some groups left with 14 holes to play, and round three will then begin 30 minutes after the conclusion in three-balls off the first and tenth tees.
