Gary Woodland matches 36-hole scoring record at PGA Championship

Rickie Fowler sets early pace at US PGA Championship

The second round will resume at 8 a.m. ET on Saturday.

And then Charl Schwartzel made it 16 players with his eight-birdie round of 63. "I think we'll see some putts go in".

Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol. "My caddie said something walking off".

The former Southern Utah golfer, who is an assistant at Davis Park Golf Course, had shot a 76 in the first round but was much better on Friday.

"In the practice rounds, I thought you've got a good chance of shooting a low score". "Gary and I are good buddies, had a great time out there playing and if I could only hit it as far as he could it would be a different game".

A birdie on the last would have seen Koepka or Schwartzel equal Branden Grace's major record of 62, set during the third round of the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale a year ago.

"I'm happy with the way I scored considering how I played", said Rose, who did not play a practice round after recent back spasms. Schwartzel, Dustin Johnson, Thomas Pieters and Rickie Fowler are tied for fourth place, but Fowler only completed hole No. 10 before leaving the course on Friday for the delay. "But being receptive, that's my only hope".

Spieth still has hope in his second try at a career Grand Slam.

Schwartzel, the 2011 Masters victor, didn't threaten the lead with his 62 bid but sank a seven-foot birdie putt at the par-3 16th to reach 7-under.

"My putter has been a little streaky here and there, but when it's on, it's on, " Prugh said. "This course would be phenomenal - and probably is phenomenal - if it's not playing soft".

That left Woodland a shot behind Kisner going into the front nine - where the pair continued to exchange the lead in a thrilling battle. You don't have to be as precise. I have more people coming in this weekend.

Woods was 3 over through seven holes of this championship, and he is 6 under over his next 18 holes and appeared to be gaining momentum.

He's played 66 rounds of the championship and has played 30 of those rounds under par, a dozen at level par and two dozen over par.

Defending champion Justin Thomas made one birdie and no doubt felt like he was losing ground. Rory McIlroy opened with seven straight pars, and then he belted a drive 359 yards on the par-5 eighth hole when the rain arrived.

Woods' back nine was more mixed as he suffered bogeys on 10 and 12, but the 14-time major victor countered that with two further birdies after hitting four on the front nine for a 66, which took him to four under overall.

Midway through the afternoon round, the cut was projected to be even par. In conditions like Bellerive, no lead was safe.

"The crowds are as big as I've seen", Woodland said. "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".
