The PGA Championship is almost halfway complete and some big names made a climb up the leaderboard on Friday.
After a four-over 75 in the first round, Fox climbed to one-under for the tournament and is seven shots behind American Kevin Kisner, who carded a second successive four-under 67, and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama, who usurped Fox with the lowest round of the tournament.
Kisner rolled in a curling 21-foot birdie putt on the 18th early in the evening to tie Olesen, who posted his round in the morning.
With a career grand slam on the line after winning last month's British Open, Spieth finished the day five back from current leader Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark.
Dustin Johnson, the world's top ranked player, made a steady start to the competition with a solid round of 70.
He took two shots to get out of the sand and two more to find the green from the primary rough before two-putting for a 7.
Championship favourite Rory McIlroy certainly found it tough going, with four bogeys in a five-hole stretch on his back nine, before two late birdies reversed some of the damage. "And there's a lot of putts that honestly, I'm not trying to make", Matsuyama said.
"I can't putt any worse than I did today", he said.
"I will try to improve on the weekend and try to get a couple of scores under par".
Daly left Quail Hollow without speaking to reporters but was heard telling his fiancee that he wanted to "get out of here", using a profanity to express his frustration with the course and heading straight for the parking lot.
One of the good things of the day was that some of the things that I worked on with Vijay (Divecha) sir worked out, like attitude on the golf course. But if they are not playing from the fairway, I wouldn't want to be doing it. ...
"You have to drive it in the fairway " that's definitely key", Fowler said. "We haven't played well in them yet this year but every year you learn more about the majors and how to approach them". He will have to hit a few more greens and make a few more putts to get right back in the mix.
But what really hurt me was the 17th, the middle segment of the "Green Mile", which for me came in the first nine itself. "Just said, 'OK, I'll bounce it up the cart path and see where this goes". "I haven't hit it this well this whole summer".
He was tied third alongside US Open champion Brooks Koepka, Gary Woodland, DA Points and Chris Stroud, whose win last week at Barracuda forced him to change plans as he qualified for the PGA Championships.
Olesen made six birdies and two bogeys Thursday.
