Day, the 2015 US PGA Champion, will have to complete the back nine of his second round on Saturday morning with threesomes going off two tees, before the third round starts.
The American was facing his third shot to the par-five eighth hole at Bellerive Country Club when an approaching thunderstorm forced play to be suspended on Friday afternoon.
Birdies were abundant early, a hint that scoring conditions might rival those of Friday that saw three players make a run at matching the all-time low major round of 62 by Branden Grace of South Africa from last year's British Open. Round One leader Gary Woodland shot a four under par 66 to get to 10 under for the tournament and hold on to the lead.
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. He's 7-under through 10 holes and is tied for fourth. Online coverage of the feature groups will also start at 8 a.m. EDT/7 a.m. CDT.
But it means a long day of 28 holes for the 42 year old on Saturday, the first time he will have played more than 18 holes in one day in this latest comeback.
The 14-time major victor was three under for his round to that point and carried on where he left off on Saturday morning, pitching to five feet and holing the birdie putt.
Woodland's 36-hole score broke the PGA record by one shot, most recently set by Jimmy Walker and Robert Streb at Baltusrol.
The Memorial victor and Ryder Cup hopeful bogeyed three of his final six holes Saturday morning to miss the even-par cut by a single stroke. "The key is to get the ball in the fairway and attack from there".Читайте также: Confirman que la muerte de Margot Kidder fue un suicidio
In only one of Woods' 14 major titles did he come from as far back as six shots with 36 holes remaining - the 2005 Masters.
"There have been ups and downs and I just feel like I'm starting to play a better golf game".
"I felt I was headed in the right direction", Woods said.
"I feel like I've been doing all the right stuff, and I just haven't been doing it on the golf course".
"In the practice rounds, I thought you've got a good chance of shooting a low score". If you're hitting it down in the fairway with the way the greens are designed, you can get the ball to about 15 feet on nearly every hole. But you can take a lot of the breakout and be very aggressive.
"I'm hitting the ball very solid".
"The only thing is you have to hit, a couple putts, you got to hit harder than normal, and there might be a few little spike marks".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
