After a two-hour delay during Round 2 of the 2018 PGA Championship, play was ultimately suspended for the day and will resume Saturday at 8 a.m. ET.

There is still at least two hours of play left in the second round with over 70 golfers still needing to finish. 

Gary Woodland still holds the top spot on the leaderboard, 10-under 130, after a second round score of 4-under 66, but there are plenty of others in contention heading into Moving Day. Woodland, and others who played in the morning, were playing in great conditions and under sunny skies with very mild wind. 

“The golf course is good,” Woodland said. “Get in the fairway, the greens are still soft enough you can still attack. The key is get the ball in the fairway and attack from there.

“I mean, you could definitely tell the greens were a little fresher this morning, which was nice to get out on fresh greens.”

Kevin Kisner, Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson made moves, with Koepka providing the early morning highlight after jumping 30 spots with a record-low round of 7-under 63. He tied a PGA Championship best along with Charl Schwartzel, who moved 44 places on the leaderboard after his round of 63. 

The afternoon saw big names like Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Tiger Woods — all of whom will continue their second round Saturday.

Woods, who failed to make the cut in both the 2014 and 2015 PGA Championship, barely got started Friday. He opened with three birdies in his first five holes to move into a nine-way tie for 23nd place. Woods is 3-under for the tournament.

Past major champions Sergio Garcia, Patrick Reed, Jim Furyk and Phil Mickelson are all projected to miss the cut.

The tournament’s third round will be played in threesomes, teeing off from both the No. 1 and No. 10 tees, beginning roughly 30 minutes after the conclusion of Round 2, approximately 12:15 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. ET.
