Gary Woodland matches 36-hole scoring record at PGA Championship

Woods is targeting a return to the majors winner's circle

Woods is targeting a return to the majors winner's circle

And with more rain that pounded Bellerive and wiped out golf for the rest of the afternoon, Woodland wasn't even sure he would be leading after the second round was completed.

The biggest move by a European was from Lowry as the Irishman finished with a birdie at the ninth - his final hole - to sit at seven-under having posted a blemish-free six-under 66.

"It just changes the momentum of your round so much when that one goes in or not".

Kisner birdied the seventh hole, his 16th of the day, to reach 7-under but found a bunker to par the par-5 eighth and chipped 25 feet beyond the cup and two-putted to bogey nine for a 64.

The day was mostly about Woodland and Kisner, who fed off each other because they both played so well.

Bellerive is getting battered with low numbers, as the 36-hole cut record of 141 is in danger.

"I think this morning was very scorable", said Schwartzel, who won the 2011 Masters. If you do that well, and, obviously, in there you're going to make those putts.

Dustin Johnson, ranked No. 1 in the world, shot 66 and is 7-under, along with Thomas Pieters and Rickie Fowler, who was through 10 holes when play was suspended. "I kind of said last night I felt like there was a 65 in the way I was playing and just have to do it".

Woodland, whose 10-under effort is a 36-hole record score here, has completed his second round and leads fellow American Kevin Kisner, in second place, by a shot. It was a little early in the tournament to do any scoreboard watching, not that Woodland needed to because the hottest player on the course was playing with him and Sergio Garcia. Kisner is not. He relies more on a clean hit with his irons and a great short game.

His speedy 24-footer settled into the hole and two hollered words rose above the roar: "Rock Chalk!" Jordan Spieth is going for his career slam, while Justin Thomas is looking to continue his tremendous season by picking up his second-straight event victory.

"I'm all right with it", Kisner said.

"It seemed like that was the only way I was going to make birdie, hit it to tap-in distance or chip in", McIlroy said.

"That's one of the reasons guys are making birdies from everywhere".

Tony Finau tried not to look at the opening two rounds of the PGA Championship as a Ryder Cup audition as he played alongside US captain Jim Furyk.

Said Woodland: "I have a lot of friends out here, a lot of college teammates, a lot of people from college". "I'm not too anxious with what anyone else is doing out there".
