Rain can't stop PGA leader's charmed run to weekend

This club was built for mining

Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel equalled the lowest score in tournament history as the 100th US PGA Championship served up some sparkling goal, with Gary Woodland heading into Day 3 with a one shot lead. We are following all of Saturday's action at Bellerive Country Club with our Live Blog.

Rory McIlory was on level par after playing just seven holes of his second round before the rain forced play to be abandoned, with Tiger Woods continuing his fine form as he was three-under par for his second round and the tournament overall with 11 holes left to play in his second round. Further, with 8 holes to play in his second round (which the field is averaging 0.3 strokes under par on), Fowler is expected to gain 1 to 1.5 strokes over both Woodland and Johnson who have already finished their second rounds. Organizers said the third round will be played in threesomes and off the first and 10th tees starting 30 minutes after the second round ends.

Kisner cooled on the second nine and Woodland registered another solid side with birdies on 2 and 3 and a bogey on 4.

"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. "I've been so in the zone, you don't know where you are".

Woodland has a one-shot lead over Kevin Kisner, with Koepka another shot back followed by Schwartzel, Dustin Johnson and Thomas Pieters in a tie for fourth at 7 under par.

"I feel safe because I feel safe where my game is, " he said.

Hours after his candidacy was announced he told reporters that "the people need peace". Millions of Congolese have been displaced by various internal conflicts.

"I hit a couple of good shots out there today early on, I was just hanging on", Woods said. So I know what I want to do, I'm just not quite doing it yet.

"I got to listen to all of the KU/Missouri banter all day with Gary, " Kisner said. I mean, there's a lot of Mizzou people out there.

For a course that received more than an inch of rain on Tuesday, Bellerive figures to be even kinder to ballstrikers this weekend. "I didn't know that was such a rivalry".

He also birdied the first and eighth holes and was much better during his closing nine holes, hitting 6-of-7 fairways and 7-of-9 greens.

On Friday, nothing worse than par was made at the 132-yard par-3 third hole.

The former Southern Utah golfer, who is an assistant at Davis Park Golf Course, had shot a 76 in the first round but was much better on Friday. I really scrambled well, to be honest, I putted it pretty well and I got the ball to the hole. "Even at the Scottish Open I haven't been a hundred per cent happy with it".
