Rain Suspends PGA Championship during Second Round

2018 PGA Championship When to watch Tiger Woods on Friday 2018 PGA Championship When to watch Tiger Woods on Friday

The best possible fix in the short-term: show more live golf from more players. Fowler overcame an early bogey with three birdies through 10 holes.

He then followed it up with a third straight birdie on 7.

So coming into the 100th PGA Championship, he wasn't exactly burning up the prognosticators picks to win and, in the process, complete the career Grand Slam.

Brown bought the costume on Amazon, and said it arrived about a week ago-in plenty of time for the big event.

Spaniard Jon Rahm, halfway leader Gary Woodland and Rickie Fowler, hunting his long-awaited first major, are a further stroke behind.

Birdies were abundant early, a hint that scoring conditions might rival those of Friday that saw three players make a run at matching the all-time low major round of 62 by Branden Grace of South Africa from last year's British Open. The Aussie is playing with a heavy heart after the loss of his friend and fellow Australian Jarrod Lyle. There certainly won't be a dry eye in the house if he comes up with his own tribute and claims his second major, following his victory in the Masters in 2012. "So I just got to be a little more aware of and make the adjustments better than I did today". Ben Kern, a 34-year-old Texan, made the cut on the number and shot a third-round 67.

"I played really well", Koepka said.

"You always feel like you've got something to prove, whether it be to yourself or somebody else", said Koepka, who will take a two-stroke lead into the final round following a third-round 66. But I've given myself a shot at winning and I'm excited about that. "Get in the fairway, the greens are still soft enough that you can still attack".

Lowry was three under par for the first ten holes of his second round when play was suspended by rain yesterday.

A roar resounded across the 7,316-yard layout when Woods dropped a six-foot birdie putt at the par-5 eighth to pull level with the chase pack behind Koepka and Woodland.

Koepka was at 8-under 132, two shots behind.

Being unable to score on the back nine has been a constant for Woods all week. Woods slid his lag putt by the hole, then missed a short comeback putt for par. There the excitement ended for the Northern Irishman.

Birdies were not only everywhere, but necessary to stay in contention, and Spieth knew it, particularly at 17 - a par 5 where eagle is in play and birdie is a must.

He signed for a bitterly disappointing 71 to be tied 44th, and his chances of getting back on the major trail haven't survived until the final round on a course tailor-made for his game. That marks four years now since his last major win.

Scott is putting together a hot round, having picked up four birdies in 13 holes at Bellerive Country Club to sit four shots back of runaway leader Brooks Koepka.
