Brooks Koepka didn't let off the gas in Round 2 of the PGA Championship, firing a 5-under 65 on Friday to extend his lead to a whopping seven shots at 12-under.
The defending champion birdied three of his first four holes to pull away early. His first bogey of the tournament came on the 10th, but he played his final eight holes at 3-under to continue extending his lead.
Koepka becomes the first player ever to lead a major championship by seven shots after 36 holes. His total of 128 also set the record for the lowest total after two rounds at a major.
