Gary Woodland finishes his second day as leader in clubhouse at 10 under

Gary Woodland finishes his second day as leader in clubhouse at 10 under

The Golf Channel's Justin Ray highlights how good the scoring was on Friday, tweeting that it was only the second time in major championship history that there were two scores of 63 in the same round.

For the third round in succession Woods looked set to bogey the hard par-four 10th hole, which plays as a par five for the members, when he could only hack out from heavy rough to the right of the fairway.

Lowry posted a magnificent 64 to finish his second round early on Saturday morning but his mixed round of three birdies and two bogeys left him four shots off the leader Brooks Koepka who leads the field on 12 under.

So much for Woods being exhausted after all that exertion he has expended this year in returning from three back operations.

"It's a good position to be in and there's a lot of holes to be played", Schwartzel said. "So we'll see some putts go in".

Woods, a 14-time major victor in the eighth month of his comeback from spinal fusion surgery, opened Saturday with a birdie at the par-5 eighth. The 34-year-old shot a 4-under-par 66 on Friday, carding a 130 for the first 36 holes of the tournament and setting a PGA Championship record. With one arm propped up against his clubs and what felt like half of the city catching its breath after drinking in that trajectory, Woods opened up a slight smirk as if to say, Yo, still got it.

His playing partner Kevin Kisner is second, just one shot back, while another American in world number one Dustin Johnson is tied for fourth on seven-under. "But the nice thing about the delay and going back out tomorrow morning, we'll get fresh greens".

Open champion Francesco Molinari continued his impressive fightback on day two of the 100th US PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club. It just changes the way you work the next few holes, I feel all the time.

Woods sank a 17-foot birdie putt on the first hole and dropped his 145-yard approach at the second to four feet with a 9-iron to set up a birdie.

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

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

He came up short of the green, chipped too strong and made bogey for a 64, leaving him one shot out of the lead Friday. "Who knows? If I had the answer to it, I would give it to you, but I really don't know". He was at 7 under, three shots behind Woodland with eight holes to play.

Spieth needs to win the PGA to complete a career Grand Slam.

Which is why Woods was frustrated by his finish Saturday, by his 10 consecutive pars to close on a cupcake-soft course.

The course is playing shorter than it did in the opening round, including a driveable par-4 on the back nine.
