Thursday, July 28
Baltusrol Golf Club, Springfield Township, N.J.

**Golf Central Live From the PGA Championship continues Friday at Noon ET and in primetime immediately following Round 2 coverage.**

On Jason Day (2-under, T-9th)
Frank Nobilo – “Obviously he knew exactly what he was doing… This was a little bit closer to seeing the World No. 1 player, the one who took this game over at this tournament 12 months ago. I think he should give himself an A+ today. I know he said he left a few out there, but a very, very good round of golf.”
Brandel Chamblee – “Maybe he had the ideal way to prepare and come in here relaxed.”

On Martin Kaymer (4-under, T-2nd)
Chamblee – “He’s an analyst’s nightmare. You look at him and think, how could he ever play bad? When he pops up he looks like one of the best players you’ve ever seen. And then he’ll disappear.”
Duval – “It has been pretty hot and cold, and it’s almost inexplicable for somebody who makes it look so effortless with his motion and how he hits the golf ball.”

On Emiliano Grillo (4-under, T-2nd)
Chamblee – “He doesn’t really get his due, but it’s coming. He’s got a long, successful career in front of him…He’s very straight, sneaky long and a very good ball striker. Quietly he’s played some really good golf. “

On Ross Fisher (4-under, T-2nd)
Nobilo – “In 2009 Ross Fisher in all four majors at one stage had a lead in all of them. Whether that be in Round 1, after Round 2 or Round 3. That’s when it looked like the sky was the limit… Still very, very talented, and not too old. 35 [years-old] and plenty of game left.”
Duval – “It’s not surprising to me at all to see him playing well.”
