Cabrera Bello saves the Spanish debacle in the PGA

He was the only Spaniard who passed the cut. Sergio Garcia, Rahm, Otaegui and Campillo stayed out, like Tiger Woods. Koepka, record holder, remains leader in -12.


Rafa Cabrera Bello saved furniture on Friday in a Spanish debacle at the PGA Championship. The Canary, one of the first to leave the deadly Bethpage Black Course, le served a -1 in the day to sign up for the weekend at the last minute with +4 in total.

Jon Rahm did not run the same fate, Sergio Garcia, Adrián Otaegui (+5 the three) and Jorge Campillo (+11). All were left out of the cut as Tiger (+5), who paddled until 18 looking for a birdie that did not arrive. "I have not done all the little things I have to do to achieve good results and put myself in a good position" , the Tiger summed up calmly.

It's the ninth time of 82 majors appearances in his career that Woods, reborn in the last Masters, can not fight for the title, while in the case of Garcia are already seven in a row out of the contest, a streak that comes from PGA 2017. "I do not know what's happening to me," he confessed to Ten Golf at the end of his lap. On the part of Rahm, it supposes the aim to a state of grace that has not obtained greater prize: nine returns followed under pair took the one of Barrika in great, its pending subject. "I did not know what to do, I ended up deranged," he acknowledged for his part.

Surely he was not the only one. Other illustrious figures such as Reed, Poulter, DeChambeau and Bubba Watson also took their leave. And is that few have managed to tame the hard and long New York layout. Nobody with the authority of Brooks Koepka, who sealed his first 36 holes with a record: the 128 hits (63 on Thursday, 65 on Friday) made by the defending champion are the best historical result in the first two rounds of a major. With -12, he remained leader followed by Spieth and Scott, both at -5. The 'cyborg' of Florida has in his hand this weekend get a second Wanamaker trophy, which would be his fourth big and the third in his last five participations. His solvency in the appointments 'pata negra' scares.
