Heavy rain halts play at PGA Championship with Woodland atop leaderboard

Gary Woodland posted a record low halfway score at a PGA Championship, Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel matched the lowest round in tournament history and half the field failed to complete the weather-delayed second round on Friday (August 10).A day that began under a cloudless sky ended prematurely when a thunderstorm ended play at 3.35 p.m. local time (2035 GMT) at Bellerive.Tiger Woods, three-under par after seven holes, was among half the field scheduled to finish the second round at 7 a.m. on Saturday.Woodland aside, the stellar leaderboard included a long list of major champions, as well as a couple of emerging talents who could soon join the ranks.World number 44 Woodland followed up his opening six-under 64 with an almost as impressive 66 to set the pace at 10-under 130, one stroke ahead of fellow American Kevin Kisner.U.S. Open champion Koepka jumped within two strokes after a seven-birdie 63, while Schwartzel moments later became the 16th player to shoot the score at the season’s fourth major.
