CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Hideki Matsuyama never looks satisfied with his shots or his score, no matter how good they look.

Perhaps it will take winning a major to change that.

Five days after the 25-year-old Japanese star closed with a 61 to win his second World Golf Championship, Matsuyama motored through a dampened Quail Hollow with a 7-under 64 that gave him a share of the lead with Kevin Kisner (67) in the PGA Championship.

They were at 8-under 134, all but ending the hopes of Jordan Spieth to get the career Grand Slam this year.

Heavy rain that suspended play Friday afternoon made Quail Hollow more vulnerable than it has been all week, only Spieth couldn't take advantage. He made only one birdie, finished with a bogey, and shot a 73 to finish 11 shots out of the lead.

Rory McIlroy shot a 73 that put him 10 shots back. Jason Day shot 66 and was two shots behind.

The second round was halted by darkness, leaving 26 players who had to return Saturday morning.

Phil Mickelson shot 74 and missed the cut for the first time in the PGA Championship since 1992.
