Inclement weather suspended Round 2 for the remainder of Friday at the PGA Championship, but not before leader Gary Woodland could turn in a record-setting performance.

Woodland fired a 4-under 66 for a two day total of 130 strokes, the lowest 36-hole score in tournament history.

Birdies were plentiful before the hail and thunderstorm showed up, with multiple players going low at Bellerive Country Club early on Friday.

Brooks Koepka (-8) and Charl Schwartzel (-7) both shot 63, tying the lowest score in PGA Championship history.

Kevin Kisner, who played alongside Woodland in Rounds 1 and 2, fired a 6-under 64 to sit one shot back.

Severe weather rolled into the St. Louis, MO. area Friday afternoon to, at first, delay second-round action until the PGA Championship announced play was done for the day.

Tiger Woods (-3), Rory McIlroy (E) and Rickie Fowler (-7) are all in the middle of their second rounds.

Round 2 play will resume Saturday at 8:00 a.m. ET.

The third round will begin immediately after the conclusion of Round 2, with golfers playing in threesomes and teeing off both No. 1 and No. 10.
