American Kevin Kisner survived a poor finish to limp in with a one-stroke lead over Hideki Matsuyama and Chris Stroud after the third round. It took root years ago on the back roads of professional golf.
"It's the type of golf course you don't have to go out and make birdies". He teed it up on mini-tours, Hooters Tour, Tar Heel Tour, Nationwide Tour and Web.com Tour, all the while pounding balls on the practice range, chipping and putting well into the night and never losing hope.
Stroud made four birdies in his first 14 holes, briefly tying Kisner for the lead before Kisner shot birdie on No. 14 to lead by a stroke. "That made me who I am".
"I had to give him a hug for it". You can't make doubles out here. "You face enough of those situations, and you get through them, that does a world of good". "So that was a big help for all of us because now we get to sleep in".
Stroud, 35, who has been playing as a pro for almost 13 years, wasn't about to get picky about his win and the stature of the tournament. He won his second Tour title this year at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial.
"It played very hard today", said the 35-year-old American, who recorded his first PGA Tour victory in Reno, Nevada six days ago. They teed off about five minutes after Johnson did. Even when Kisner told Bock he should look for another bag, Bock stuck with him. The way the conditions have been the last three days, I haven't seen a low score out there for me.
After a week off, McIlroy plans to play in all four FedEx Cup play-off events as he attempts to retain the title - and 10million U.S. dollar bonus - he won a year ago. "He wants to be in contention and he understands he has to work at it".

There is no fear in him, either.
The PGA Championship has yet to crown a victor at Quail Hollow but officials are already talking about a return to the Queen City. Matsuyama fell a stroke back with his bogey on the first hole, and matched Kisner's birdie on No. 7. "So it's a tough track where they're putting these flagsticks". For instance, his 4-iron into the 9th green in the second round bounced 40 paces from its pitch mark. Johnson had no intention of coming to the course that early, either.
Or that he would be playing on a different hole.
He at least salvaged the round with two late birdies for another 1-over 72.
After a birdie at the par-three 13th, the Canadian then went eagle, eagle, birdie - six-under-par for the four holes - en route to a three-under 68 at Quail Hollow.
As for the pressure of trying to get the final leg of the Grand Slam?
"He doesn't get nervous when he's playing well".

His mind is in a good spot, too, his focus spot on.
'It's been two majors, ' added the left-hander, who missed the cut in the Open at Royal Birkdale. He's had six finishes of 37th or worse. "I'm grateful. I'm grateful to have a chance to play on the tour and stay healthy".
"I do remember finishing in the dark a lot when I was a kid, not thinking that it was going to be I was running down the 18th hole at a major championship", Day said. "That's kind of been our goal for the year".
"I think that's really beneficial for me here, unlike other majors that we play once every five years or something". "So I'm not really sure what happened there".
Luke Shaw's agent plays down talk of Manchester United departure
Rose has been frequently linked with the Red Devils this summer, and he recently stated that he is ready to listen to offers. They say the United boss is frustrated with Shaw's attitude and he could be used in a swap deal to land Rose.
Then came an approach that hit the edge of the green but rolled back, a chip that he left short and finally an 8-foot putt f or his second bogey of the round. "I missed a lot of putts, including two very small ones".
