China’s Haotong Li is leading at the halfway mark of the PGA Championship following a brilliant five-under-par 65 on Friday.
Li was in superb form and started his second round with a bang as he rolled in four birdies on the front nine, while adding a fifth on the 10th for a bogey-free day.
We have a new leader!

He will take a two-shot lead into moving day after Tommy Fleetwood also made a great surge up the leaderboard thanks to a magnificent 64 for his second round.
The Englishman made seven birdies and one bogey to finish the second round on six under par and in T2, alongside Jason Day, Daniel Berger, Brooks Koepka, Justin Rose and Mike Lorenzo-Vera, who are all very much in contention going into the weekend.
South Africa’s Dylan Frittelli also enjoyed a composed third round with an excellent 67 that had him jump 32 spots on the leaderboard.
He will head into his third round on three under par for the event and in T15.
Erik van Rooyen, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel just about survived the cut after finishing their second rounds on one over par, while Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Shaun Norris struggled throughout Friday to finish on two over – meaning their PGA Championship has unfortunately come to an end.
