Woodland stays ahead at PGA after rain-hit second round

Woodland stays ahead at PGA after rain-hit second round

Adam Scott posted a fine 65, his second in a row, to get to ten under par and will play in the final group on Sunday alongside Koepka. After the 36-hole cut is made, the third round will be played in threesomes going off both the first and 10th tees. He added a two-putt birdie at the 17th and ended the second round in a tie for 19th place, six shots back of Woodland.

After birdieing five of his first eight holes and playing the front side in 31 strokes, Woods stalled on the back nine, failing to convert any birdie opportunities and squandering a attractive chance at the par-5 17th, where he three-putted for par. The greens are also rolling more quickly, and more to the players' liking, after they were a touch slow Thursday from rain early in the week.

Those 68 shots were hit by a total of only 13 golfers. "So we'll see some putts go in".

He made a long birdie putt at the next hole, knocked his approach close at the fifth and again at the seventh, then two-putted for birdie at the par-5 eighth.

Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters victor, didn't threaten the lead with his run at 62 but sank a seven-foot birdie putt at the par-3 16th to reach 7-under. "This is the first real Tiger effect, I guess you could say".

That Woods stalled on the back nine wasn't completely surprising, at least not this year.

The feat has never been culminated at a PGA but it has been completed at Bellerive - South Africa's Player when he won the 1965 US Open. "I was fortunate to where I played well this morning", said Thomas.

Resuming his weather-delayed round on the 12th hole Saturday, the Lehi resident made two more birdies and two bogeys to finish.

Schwartzel had 30 feet for birdie at his final hole, which would have given him a 62 and matched Branden Grace's low round in a major. "I've been so in the zone, you don't know where you are". If you're hitting it down in the fairway with the way the greens are designed, you can get the ball to about 15 feet on nearly every hole.

"So in eight holes, he had seven birdies", Furyk said.

"Honestly, I haven't hit it great, up to my standards, these first couple days", Finau said.

Rory McIlroy could not put the same pressure on the leaders however as a single birdie on the fourteenth only enough to leave him on two-under for the tournament with his second round almost completed.

Jordan Spieth's career Grand Slam chances vanished with an ugly - and unusual - triple bogey on Saturday at the PGA Championship.

"That stemmed the momentum a little bit", Woods said. It was a little early in the tournament to do any scoreboard watching, not that Woodland needed to because the hottest player on the course was playing with him and Sergio Garcia. He went on to play his next 5 holes in 2 under par, which leaves him at even par for the championship in a tie for 64th.
