Play suspended for day at PGA Championship

The year’s final major continued Friday.

We tracked all of the action from the second round of the PGA Championship at Bellerive. Catch up with all Round 2 progress below:

UPDATE No. 23 (6:35 p.m. ET): And play is suspended for the day. Details on restart and more here…

UPDATE No. 22 (5:46 p.m. ET): Ugh….

UPDATE No. 21 (5:16 p.m. ET): Here’s a non-update update. Unfortunately, that’s all we can give you at the moment. Some time before play resumes.

UPDATE No. 20 (4:42 p.m. ET): This delay could be short as this storm passes over, but there’s no guarantee. We’ll see and keep you updated.

UPDATE No. 19 (4:35 p.m. ET): And play has been suspended. There had been weather warnings this afternoon, and now we’re in delay.

UPDATE No. 18 (4:30 p.m. ET): Rickie Fowler is not wasting his strong first day.

He bogeyed his opening hole but played his next nine in 3 under. That puts him 7 under overall and three back. He’s certainly right in this.

UPDATE No. 17 (3:55 p.m. ET): No pars on the front nine.

What a wild day so far from Finau. He bogeys the ninth to go out in 3-under 32. That would be seven birdies, one bogey, on triple. What a front nine! He’s 1 over for the tournament and currently one off the cutline.

UPDATE No. 16 (3:35 p.m. ET): What is going on with Tony Finau??

He triple bogeyed the sixth to blunt his hot start but then birdies Nos. 7 and 8. That’s right, 7 birdies and a triple bogey in this round. WOW.

He’s back to even par, as he’s 4 under on the day.

UPDATE No. 15 (3:20 p.m. ET): Tiger Woods is off and he birdies Nos. 2 and 3 to move to 2 under. Strong start for TW.

UPDATE No. 14 (2:55 p.m. ET): How about Tony Finau!

A massively disappointing 4-over 74 yesterday, but he’s birdied his first five holes today. Wow. He’s already rocketed 75 spots to T-45.

UPDATE No. 13 (2:20 p.m. ET): Schwartzel pars his final hole for his own 63. That puts two 63s on the board and a near 63 from Kiz.

The South African is just three back at 7 under. Here’s the current top 10 leaderboard:

UPDATE No. 12 (1:45 p.m. ET): Kisner actually bogeys the last for 64.

That gives Gary Woodland (64-66) a one-shot lead at 10 under. That’s where he started the day. His 10-under 130 sets the PGA record for lowest score through 36 holes. The previous record was 131, shared by six players.

Also, Charl Schwartzel is 7 under through 17 on his round. A birdie means 62. Par means another 63. He’s 7 under overall.

UPDATE No. 11 (1:30 p.m. ET): We have a 63!

It’s actually come from Brooks Koepka thanks to a late birdie. The U.S. Open champ rockets to 8 under and within two.

Kevin Kisner, now tied for the lead with Gary Woodland, is 7 under on his round playing the last. So another 63 could be on the way in moments.

UPDATE No. 10 (1:08 p.m. ET): This is getting serious!

Kisner birdies the seventh (his 16th) to snatch back the solo lead at 10 under. It also puts him 7 under for the day on a par 70. So yes, a par-par finish means he shoots 63. If he can play them in 1 under, it’s a 62, tying the major championship mark set by Branden Grace in the third round of the 2017 British Open.

If Kisner closes birdie-birdie, we have a new record! The eighth is a par 5, FYI.

UPDATE No. 9 (12:55 p.m. ET): Woodland bogeys the fourth (his 13th) to fall back to 9 under.

He’s in a tie for the lead with Kisner. Still plenty of red numbers, though. Koepka is still 7 under and Dustin Johnson has joined him! The World No. 1 has birdied five of his last six holes to rocket back to 7 under.

Adam Scott and Charl Schwartzel are both 6 under for their rounds and overall. Just a birdie bonanza today!

UPDATE No. 8 (12:13 p.m. ET): The shootout continues and the lead changes again.

Gary Woodland birdies Nos. 2 and 3 (his 11th and 12th holes) and races back up to 10 under and back into the solo lead. Kevin Kisner is still 9 under after three pars to start his final nine. Brooks Koepka is solo third at 7 under.

UPDATE No. 7 (11:53 a.m. ET): Your two-time defending U.S. Open champion is also on fire.

Brooks Koepka is 6 under on his round through 12 holes and 7 under overall. That puts him just two off the lead right now.

The Open Championship winner is cruising, too. Francesco Molinari is 3 under on his round through 12 and 5 under overall.

UPDATE No. 6 (11:25 a.m. ET): Holy Kiz!

He birdies 18 to go out in 6-under 29! He’s your solo leader by one at 9 under. Only one player has broken 63 in major championship golf and the record is 62. This is a par 70, so watch out!

UPDATE No. 5 (11:05 a.m. ET): This is turning into a Friday shootout.

Kisner birdies the 17th to reach 8 under. He’s already 5 under on his round and a par at the 18th means he goes out in 30 (he started on No. 10). Gary Woodland, though, eagles the 17th to also reach 8 under.

They now co-lead and are three ahead of the rest of the field.

UPDATE No. 4 (10:50 a.m. ET): Adam Scott is making noise.

The Aussie (starting on No. 10) goes out in a flawless 4-under 31, and he’s suddenly within three at 4 under overall.

UPDATE No. 3 (10:35 a.m. ET): A new solo leader!

Kevin Kisner birdies Nos. 10, 11, 13 and 15 to rocket to 7 under and the lead by one shot. (He began his round on No. 10).

Remember, Kiz led or co-lead after each of the first three rounds of the PGA last year before closing in 74 to finish T-7.

If that sounds familiar, Kisner did the same thing (lead or co-lead after each of the first three rounds) at the Open Championship. He ended up T-2 there. So yeah, Kiz is definitely knocking on the door.

UPDATE No. 2 (10:05 a.m. ET): The scores may be out there today even more than yesterday.

Already we have a pair of players pushing 3-under rounds. Those would be Kevin Kisner (6 under overall, through 4) and Matt Wallace (2 under overall, through 7).

Gary Woodland still leads alone only because he made an early birdie at No. 11 (his second) to reach 7 under. He’s ahead by one over Kiz and Brandon Stone.

Dustin Johnson bogeys the 15th (his sixth) and he’s fallen five behind at 2 under.

UPDATE No. 1 (9 a.m. ET): Play has started on Day 2, but not much new to report.

The World No. 1 is off and has parred his first two holes. Dustin Johnson remains 3 under and three back then. Great par save at his opening hole, by the way.

The low round so far is 1 under as nobody is through more than five holes.
