Play during the second round of the 2018 PGA Championship, which is taking place at Bellerive outside St. Louis, Missouri this week, has been suspended. Inclement weather has created what the PGA is calling a “dangerous situation” in the area.
The stoppage of play does not come at a great time for Tiger Woods, who was playing very well before the horn sounded. Woods is three-under par through seven holes and sits seven shots behind the leader, Gary Woodland.
Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy, who are playing with Woods, are also looking to make runs. Thomas is two-under par and McIlroy is even-par.
Tony Finau has easily the craziest scorecard from day two. In the first nine holes, Finau had seven birdies, one bogey and one triple bogey. He’s fighting to make the cut.

The next update from the PGA is schedule to come in about 10 minutes. It’s unclear whether play will resume tonight.
If play does not resume, some players will likely be playing more than 18 holes on Saturday. Clearly, that would create an advantage for the players already in the clubhouse Friday night.
