Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

Day, the 2015 US PGA Champion, will have to complete the back nine of his second round on Saturday morning with threesomes going off two tees, before the third round starts.

While officials sounded the horn just after 3.30pm local time on Friday, Scott had fired a five-under-par 65 at Bellerive Country Club in Missouri hours earlier to earn a 36-hole score of five under.

Woodland is a three-time victor on the PGA Tour but has never won a major championship.

McIlroy's birdie on the par-five eighth was his first since his fourth hole on Thursday and he also chipped in on the 14th after flying the green with his approach.

"It was fine. I'm 3-under par, so I felt I was headed in the right direction, " Woods said.

Koepka, Kisner and Schwartzel thrilled the crowd by chasing the all-time record low men's major score of 62 set by South African Branden Grace in the third round at the 2017 British Open at par-70 Royal Birkdale.

Lowry, whose best major finish was tied second at the US Open in 2016, holed a 24ft putt for birdie at the par-three third to get to five-under before two gains over the closing three holes put the polish on his round.

The third round was due to begin about 30 minutes after the end of the second round on Saturday, with players going out in groups of three - instead of the traditional two - off the first and 10th tees. "But the nice thing about the delay and going back out tomorrow morning, we'll get fresh greens".

When their respective second rounds of the PGA Championship were complete, it was Woodland crossing the finish line just before Kisner, taking the tournament lead at 10-under par to Kisner's 9-under. "The key is to get the ball in the fairway and attack from there".

"I have my brother on the bag, and he's doing a great job, really enjoyed it", said Lowry, who had restarted on four-under.

Schwartzel and Koepka settled for 63s, matching the tournament record with the first same-day 63s in the event's 100-year history, while Kisner shot 64. If you're hitting it down in the fairway with the way the greens are designed, you can get the ball to about 15 feet on nearly every hole. "If they were firm, I don't think I would have a chance with the way the greens are situated and the places they're putting the flags". If you do that well, and, obviously, in there you're going to make those putts. "I hit it well on the second nine". But you can take a lot of the breakout and be very aggressive.
