Storm-hit PGA resumes with Tiger chasing leader Woodland

Gary Woodland leads the US PGA Championship on 10-under but half the field are yet to finish their second rounds

Playing alongside Woods, Rory McIlroy also birdied the eighth after getting up and down from a greenside bunker, his first birdie since the fourth hole of his first round on Thursday. Dustin Johnson led the group at 133 and was joined by Shane Lowry, who completed a 64 after the delay.

"I just have to make birdies", Woods said of his mindset going into the third round. He shot 29 on the back nine (his first nine) and was threatening to shoot a tournament-record 62, but bogeyed the final hole to settle for 64. "There's a lot of golf left on a very gettable golf course".

Defending champion Justin Thomas stayed in the game, and so did Tiger Woods.

He picked up one last birdie when he reached the green in two on the 597-yard 17th hole and two-putted, sending him to a 66.

Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler and the late starters Friday had the same idea and were on the same track until the sky darkened, thunder rumbled and storms arrived to stop play for two hours, until it rained so much the PGA called it a day. "Everyone is bunched. On top of that, if you hit the ball well enough, you'll leave yourself in the right sections".

Kisner made bogey on No. 9 and finished the day with a 64, one stroke behind Woodland and one ahead of Brooks Koepka, victor of the past two U.S. Opens.

The PGA have confirmed their third-round tee times, with Woods out on the course at 12:21pm local time.

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

Woodland, whose 10-under effort is a 36-hole record score here, has completed his second round and leads fellow American Kevin Kisner, in second place, by a shot.

"It's always a bit frustrating to have to come back and finish a round in the morning, but that's golf, and something I will just have to deal with", Fox said after his truncated round.

Tony Finau tried not to look at the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship as a Ryder Cup audition as he played alongside USA captain Jim Furyk. Mickelson is still expected to be one of captain Jim Furyk's four at-large picks, with three coming on September 4 and the final one coming on September 10.

Playing with - and likely auditioning for Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk - Finau began with five straight birdies before posting a triple bogey on No. 6. He hit 8 of 9 greens on the back nine.

Jim Furyk will get four captain's picks on September 4, and Mickelson stands a good chance of being one of them.
