CHARLOTTE – If there was an MVP for any day of golf, Dustin Johnson substantially would’ve collected a respect Friday.
The World No. 1 was a member of one of a groups racing to kick dark in a second turn of a PGA Championship during Quail Hollow.
The horn blew to postpone second-round play due to dark Friday during 8:11 p.m. Eastern. But a order with this form of cessation of play is a organisation can finish out a hole it’s personification on once a horn blows.
That means groups are unfortunate to be on a final hole when this happens so they can finish and equivocate a super early Saturday start to finish a small ruins of their Friday round.
Thus, players were legit using to get their rounds in Friday during Quail Hollow:

As for because Johnson was a favourite for a day: Only one actor from a organisation has to get a turn in play before a horn sounds for a organisation to be deliberate on a hole and means to finish that hole.
Johnson and Jason Day (grouped together in a trio with Henrik Stenson) were considering that Friday as dark encroached.
Johnson stepped adult immediately.
“We were walking adult (on 17), and we were articulate about like if we can get a tee shot on 18, we could finish a round,” Day said. “And DJ is like, ‘I’ll do it.’ ”
The World No. 1 was a male of his word there, and got one off No. 18 tee before a horn went off.
Johnson would post a 74 and sits T-31 while Day was means to finish off a 66 and lay solo third.
Day positively did not take Johnson’s gesticulate for granted. To a contrary, a Aussie was purgation following about what Johnson did for their group.
“As shortly as he teed off, we know, we all kind of burning it down 18,” Day said. “I only walked adult to him and said, ‘That’s a biggest, or many purchase thing I’ve ever seen anyone do for me.’ ”
Those difference weren’t it either, as Day gave Johnson a cuddle going down 18 as well.

“I had to give him a cuddle for it,” Day said. “Obviously to be means to finish and not have to arise adult during 5:30 (a.m.) tomorrow, get some rest.”
You merit that nap a most, Dustin Johnson. MVPs should get their rest.
