Two days are down at the PGA Championship, and there are two to go as cuts are just about to be made while the leaderboard continues to bunch up toward the top. Unfortunately, play was suspended on Friday night because of bad weather.
The second round continued at 7 a.m. ET with the third teeing off at 9:15.
With the tournament's top 11 golfers within three strokes of one another, Saturday's third round is going to see plenty of movement among the leaders from Whistling Straits in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.
At Friday's suspension of play, Jason Day and Matt Jones were tied at the top of the heap at nine under overall. To view Saturday's updated leaderboard scores, follow the graphic below.
Day has been one of the most consistent golfers of late with four consecutive finishes of 12th or higher, including a win at the RBC Canadian Open at the end of July.
He was just beginning to heat up on the back nine, birdieing three consecutive holes from 11 to 13 before his day ended after a par on No. 14.
Joining him at the top is Jones, who also attained the same feat of birdieing holes 11 to 13 on Friday, with another on No. 18 before his day was cut short on the fourth hole.
Jones is in unfamiliar territory as he had to wait to finish his second round. During his 13-year career, he has won just one event—the Shell Houston Open in April 2014.
The game's top two golfers distanced themselves from each other, as world No. 2 Jordan Spieth began his charge toward the top, while No. 1 Rory McIlroy stayed consistent but did not see much movement.
With each of them tied for 24th at one under after the first round, Spieth went five under on the day to move up to seventh, while McIlroy went one under and tied for 28th.
McIlroy continues to prove that his recently healed ankle that he injured playing soccer five weeks ago is just fine. He has navigated Whistling Straits well except for a double-bogey on 18. He has been assuring the media all week that he is good to go, as ESPN's Jason Sobel points out:
Friday's leader Dustin Johnson dropped down a bit after going through the first 14 holes at one over. Leading the PGA Championship after the first day still remains hazardous, as the Golf Channel's Justin Ray shows:
Golfers who finish their second round on Saturday morning might carry a slight advantage into the third round. If they are able to start their day strong while completing their round, they can ride the momentum they gained quickly into the next 18 holes.
That being said, don't count out those who finished on Friday night. It looks like Spieth is just heating up and has the potential to reel off a big performance on any given day. Either way, the golfing world is in store for some entertaining play in the next two days.
