Wise made the cut and is expected to keep playing the final two rounds on the weekend.

“I was walking down seven, surprised my ball was in the fairway, and then next thing you know, I mean there’s a little bit of ringing in my head,” he told ESPN after his round. “I was down on the fairway. But, you know, that happened for maybe 20 seconds, and I was pretty normal after that.”

He is playing in his fourth career PGA Championship. He made the cut in 2019 and 2021 but has not finished better than tied for 17th. This year’s tournament at Southern Hills was the first he’s played this year.
