Golf roundup: Kisner holds on at Colonial

Golf roundup: Kisner holds on at Colonial

He finished one shot ahead of Jordan Spieth, Sean O'Hair and Jon Rahm.

Kiwi golf No.1 Danny Lee's is within striking distance of his second win on the US PGA Tour.

Kisner, 33, won his second PGA Tour title in 148 starts.

Kisner birdied the 10th and 11th holes to tie Simpson for the top spot and took the lead outright with a birdie on the par-4 12th.

Langer was 11 under through 13 holes in the second round when play was stopped Friday, one shot ahead of Vijay Singh, who shot 68 amid wind measured at more than 30 miles per hour. He birdied four holes in a six-hole stretch starting with the 10th, and drilled a 10-foot putt to take a solo lead at the 12th. "I don't think I've ever done 2 under on those holes", Spieth said.

Jamieson dropped three shots in his first three holes to fall five off the lead, but a run of six birdies in seven holes around the turn saw him surge back up the leaderboard.

From Paris climate accord
Speaking in Berlin about the Paris climate change accord, he said that "China in recent years has stayed true to its commitment". But his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, and Environmental Protection Agency administrator Scott Pruitt are opposed.

He has oft been the bridesmaid and not the bride, having finished second twice already this season, in addition to the four instances in which it occurred during the 2015 calendar year. "I love this place", Kisner said. "I let Damon down today".

Si Woo Kim, playing for the first time since winning The Players Championship two weeks ago, had an 8 on the par-4 ninth after his pitch from greenside bunker went dead right off his club and rolled into the water. Lizette Salas (67) is in second place, one shot ahead of Suzann Pettersen (69).

NOTES: The scoring average of 71.65 in the first two rounds on Thursday and Friday was the highest since 1991, with the cut at 4-over-par the highest since 1999. It's not easy out there when wind is blowing sideways every hole. "We can't predict the future but I'm very excited with how I've been playing". "Weeks I've putted well I've always had a chance to win, or won".

Lee's 6-under 64, which included seven birdies and a bogey, was the low round of the day and the first two days of the tournament.

After birdies on the par-four 10th and the par-four 15th, Spieth was able to put some pressure on the leaders. "I hit the fairways, and if I missed the fairways they were good drives that were just off that gave me an opportunity to be on the green. I'm still in position and just have positive thoughts for tomorrow". "Then I win, and then everybody questions if I was ever going to win again". Needing to hole his greenside bunker shot for birdie from a hard lie to force a play-off, Simpson bookended his round with his second bogey of the day, handing Kisner his second PGA Tour victory, the winner's tartan jacket and a place on the Wall of Champions at Hogan's Alley. "So to go from there to a second-place finish and nearly having a chance at a playoff is tremendous fight". I will just try to get off to a little better start maybe the next time. Kiz was the deserving victor this year.
