PGA Championship resumes with second round at wet Bellerive

PGA Championship resumes with second round at wet Bellerive

Woods ran off three birdies in four holes Friday to stand 3-under through seven holes for the event when storms stopped play Friday at Bellerive Country Club.

On Saturday morning, Woods took the course to finish his second round.

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and former Masters victor Charl Schwartzel each shot 63, which matches the lowest score in tournament history, one that had been shot 14 times.

Woodland fired a four-under par 66 to lead on 10-under 130, one stroke ahead of British Open runner-up Kevin Kisner with two-time US Open champion Brooks Koepka third on 132.

Open Championship runner-up Kisner holed six birdies as he played his first nine holes in 29 shots to move into the lead on nine under, while Woodland avenged a bogey on the 14th with an eagle three on the par-five 17th.

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. He was at 3-over par for the second round through nine holes and 4 over for the tournament, putting him in a tie for 111th.

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

But it means a long day of 28 holes for the 42 year old on Saturday, the first time he will have played more than 18 holes in one day in this latest comeback.

Woodland, who has never finished inside the top 10 at a major in 27 previous attempts, led after the first round on six under and extended his advantage with a birdie on the 11th after starting on the back nine.

Whether the magic is still there, we shall have to wait and see.

"I think this morning was very scorable", said Schwartzel, who won the 2011 Masters. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".

"I feel safe where my game is", Woodland said.

"I'm very happy with where I'm at", he said. "I like my position going into the weekend".

"I got to listen to all of the KU/Missouri banter all day with Gary, " Kisner said. He's absolutely striping it and rolling the rock, so if he's going to keep that up we're going to have a pretty good battle if I can too. "I didn't know that was such a rivalry".

Said Woodland: "I have a lot of friends out here, a lot of college teammates, a lot of people from college". Personally, I would prefer more hard and firmer, faster conditions on the greens.
