US PGA Championship 2018 LIVE leaderboard for round three at St Louis

While the golfers were putting up low scores, the only thing that could stop them was mother nature.

Shane Lowry had an early start on Saturday morning to complete his second round at the weather-affected PGA Championship in St Louis, and the in-form Offaly man picked up where he left off on Friday.

Round 2 of the 2018 PGA Championship will conclude in the morning after rain halted play Friday afternoon.

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka and former Masters victor Charl Schwartzel each shot 63, which matches the lowest score in tournament history, one that had been shot 14 times. Brooks Koepka and Charl Schwartzel both tied the PGA record with a round of 63.

Woodland shot a 66 and finished his day as leader in the clubhouse by one stroke with a score of 130, a record after two days at the PGA Championship.

Despite the record showing, he leads Kevin Kisner (9-under-par) by just one stroke.

Moments later, Tiger hit a brilliant tee shot at the 132-yard par-3 third hole to five feet, setting up a simple birdie putt.

American Koepka moved to eight under for the tournament with seven birdies in his bogey-free 63, missing a 20-foot putt on the ninth that would have seen him match Branden Grace's 62 set at the 2017 Open.

While countryman Adam Scott is safely in the clubhouse five shots off the pace, Day was among the half of the field who failed to complete their second rounds before play was suspended for the day due to risky weather.

The third round was due to begin about 30 minutes after the end of the second round on Saturday, with players going out in groups of three - instead of the traditional two - off the first and 10th tees.

Woodland eagled the par-5 17th after his second shot landed five feet from the cup, then birdied the second and third and answered a bogey stumble at four with a 25-foot birdie putt at the eighth - all as Kisner watched.

"I got to listen to all of the KU/Missouri banter all day with Gary, " Kisner said. I mean, there's a lot of Mizzou people out there.

"I feel safe because I feel safe where my game is, " he said. "We're going to have a pretty good battle if I can keep up with him". "Sometimes you are in your own mind and don't know where you are at".

"I'm very happy with where I'm at", he said. Personally, I would prefer more hard and firmer, faster conditions on the greens.
