Storming Shane Lowry’s Quail Hollow Assault Halted By Electrical Downpour.

Quail Hollow, NC …

Storming Shane Lowry was on the verge of breaking into the top-5 when a late afternoon electrical downpour halted play on day two of the PGA Championship.

Lowry had muscled his way to a share of seventh place at two under par and with just three holes to complete when players were called from the Quail Hollow course.

The Clara golfer had jumped 55 places thanks to an impressive bogey-free effort.

Lowry had just one birdie over his outward nine in holing a 26-foot gem at the fourth that was sandwiched among eight pars.

He then headed into the inward half with birdies at 10, 11, 13 and 14 and with the pick being a 78-foot chip shot from off the green at the front of 15 to just three feet.

In contrast, former PGA winner Padraig Harrington had dropped two shots to be 10-over through nine holes.

American Kevin Kisner, with a pair of 67s, led the field at eight under par but with red-hot Hideki Matsuyama on a charge in moving to six under and with four to play.

And triple Major winning Jordan Spieth rekindled memories of his bizarre 13th hole exploits at Royal Birkdale in also producing a bogey at Quail Hollow’s 10th.

Spieth again never saw the fairway in an ‘army golf’ like effort first right off the fairway and then left along with clipping a tree branch before emerging onto the green.
