Day 1 was tough with high winds and Jordan shot a very respectable 71. Today Jordan came out firing and shot a nice 67 to move into contention. Read more below….
A strong storm hit Whistling Straits on Friday afternoon, suspending the second round of the PGA Championship for the day with Australians Jason Day and Matt Jones tied for the lead at 9-under par.
The round was scheduled to resume at 7 a.m. Saturday.
Justin Rose was a shot back with one hole left.
The clubhouse leader was David Lingmerth, who shot a 2-under 70 earlier in the day to head into the weekend at 7-under 137.
Others at 7 under and still on the course when the storm hit were Harris English and Tony Finau.
Jordan Spieth shot 67 and was 6 under for the tournament.
Tiger Woods was at 4 over with five holes to play. The projected cut was 2 over.
Iwata ties major record
Hiroshi Iwata of Japan completed a round of 63, matching the lowest single-round score in a major.
Iwata, a veteran of the Japan Golf Tour, nearly chipped in to set the record on No. 18. His shot from out of the rough skidded 2 feet past and he tapped in for par. He is at 4-under 140 for the tournament, three behind leader David Lingmerth.
This was the 27th round of 63 to be shot at a major. The previous one was by Jason Dufner at the PGA in 2013 at Oak Hill Country Club.
Johnny Miller hit the mark first, at the U.S. Open in 1973. He remains the only player to close a major with a 63 to win the tournament.
Daly shoots a 10
John Daly recorded a 10 on the par-3 seventh hole. And, as always, he made some memories along the way.
After dunking three balls into Lake Michigan, Daly decided his golf club needed to take a swim, too, so he hurled it into the water. One lucky young man was riding in a boat nearby. The driver steered the boat up to where the club landed so the boy could fish it out.
