Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

Charl Schwartzel finishes his round of 63. More

He's played 66 rounds of the championship and has played 30 of those rounds under par, a dozen at level par and two dozen over par.

The American was facing his third shot to the par-five eighth hole at Bellerive Country Club when an approaching thunderstorm forced play to be suspended on Friday afternoon.

Woods, searching for a first major win since the 2008 US Open, moved into contention after a blistering front nine which contained five birdies and one bogey.

Scott's countryman Jason Day was flirting with a leaderboard charge on moving day, snaring two birdies on his front nine, before a dropped shot at the 10th and and a birdie at the 13th have left him at seven under.

Brooks Koepka opened up a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the PGA Championship, as Tiger Woods stayed in contention at Bellerive.

That was six shots off the clubhouse lead held by compatriot Gary Woodland, whose halfway total of 130 was a tournament record.

Woods was one of the golfers to not complete his second round.

"I played really well", Koepka said. "And 18 is playing pretty short as well".

The 14-time major victor was three under for his round to that point and carried on where he left off on Saturday morning, pitching to five feet and holing the putt to improve to four under par.

At the 17th, after ramming his eagle putt through the break, he missed the 4-footer coming back.

"I know that I can do it", Rahm said. "The greens were getting fuzzy, they're getting slow, and I didn't hit the putts quite hard enough". "And I made sure I did on 17".

But the expected challenge from Jordan Spieth petered out after a triple bogey on the 12th to finish on four-under overall, while current world number one Dustin Johnson also went backwards after a two-over 72 to fall seven shots off the pace. Fowler, of course, has endured a much longer wait at age 29 than the 23-year-old Rahm. He said there have been no physical issues since the week began with him taking ice baths to combat swelling.

ST. LOUIS - Who knows what time Tiger Woods woke up on Saturday morning, but like all of those who had to finish the second round, it was in the dark.

Furthermore, reports have surfaced that USA Basketball isn't interested in grading high school players as "elite" or not. The NCAA has announced changes to rules regarding highly-touted basketball prospects.

"I'm exhausted. I am definitely exhausted", Woods said. "It was a long day". He shot 4-under 66 to reach 8 under. "Being in Tiger's group is always exciting".

It looks like we're all going to have a hell of a lot of fun finding out. "It was like turning back the hands of the clock".

But Woods could turn it only so far. He finished with 10 consecutive pars.

Woods hit his drive at the fourth hole into thick rough to the left of the fairway, and he took a furious rip into the thick grass to advance the ball up the fairway at the par-4.

And the round was solid, perhaps something to build on.

Bigger picture, and on a highly positive note, this all is a bonus for Woods, who 11 months ago was only able to hit 60-yard wedge shots and questioned whether he'd ever play again.

Woodland still leads the way but there is a glut of talent close behind.

Exhausted and hungry, an old Tiger survived 29 holes Saturday.

There, he needed some help from the leaders to make it interesting, and the same might be required here. But there's no question what Woods will need to do.

"Another low round", Woods said.

Those birdies after his big blunder stood out to Finau, one of only 11 players to make the cut in all four majors this year. Look at that front nine. That's just the nature of the way it's playing right now.

He won't get to No. 1 in the world with a victory on Sunday, but he'll certainly make a statement that will be impossible for anyone to ignore.
