All you need to know in Round Two of PGA 2020

The question hangs in the air all week: What will the 2020 PGA Championship, first tournament in 13 months and first without fans look like?

We got the answer on Thursday.

"It's completely different," said Tiger Woods. This is probably the only way to say so.

Different, but still interesting. Just take a look at the drama on Thursday - from Woods who scored two goals under 68 years to Bryson Deshambaugh who beheads his driver with one of his monsters swings to the low scores in TPC Harding Park.

Although different, the first semester has its first major in 13 months prepared for some drama. Here's everything to prepare you for the second round on Friday.

Brooks Koepka is trying to win the PGA Championship for the third year in a row. Slowly, vainly at 11th, he started his second hole of the day after starting at number 10. Then he clicked, realizing that this was the flagship and his stage.

Four birds wiggle to come out at 3-under 32 and 1-under 34 followed in front. 66 puts him in good company - which really includes him.

Koepka will be the first player of the Stroke Era to win three consecutive PGA Championships. Walter Hagen won four times in the 1920s, when the event was a match play arrangement.

"It's only 18 holes at the moment," said Koepka. "I feel good. I feel confident. I'm excited for the next three days. I think I can definitely play a lot better, and I just need to arrange a few things, and we'll be there on Sunday at the back. Nine."

Good day, a better weekend?

Sure, it's only a day, and there's a long way to go before someone holds the Wanamaker Cup on Sunday night. If date is an indication, Jason Day has a chance. He has eight wins on the PGA Tour. In four of these, he had at least his share of first-round lead.

Given his recent outings, it wasn't hard to see this kind of start from Day. The tie finished seventh in the Workday Charity Open, T-4 in Memorial and T-6 in WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational.

"I feel the momentum that I got during the past three beginnings has somewhat leaked out this week," he said. "Every day I'm excited to be back on the golf course and play."

This has not always been the case since golf has returned from a three-month lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. A day missed three cuts in four events - and the one he did make the cut that tied him to 46th - before that hotline.

"I was struggling to get up and go, [thinking]" Oh, do I want to put myself through this again? "Honestly, I'm excited to go out and play every week now."

Now, will his back - who has an acting history and the cold weather in San Francisco won't help him - last for more than four days? He had to withdraw earlier this year from calling Arnold Palmer because of that.
