Whistling Straits
PGA Championship

By my mathematics, there are 57 players with shots left to play in round two and they'll be back on the course at 7am local time which is 13:00 BST for all you UK readers.

So who does that suit? A momentum killer for Jason Day and Matt Jones at the top of the leaderboard? Those who have finished get a rest in the morning while their colleagues graft. How does this change your slant on things?

You'll be back for more on Saturday I hope. We will be. Our live text will show up on the BBC Sport website during the afternoon and we need you lot with us because it's going to be frenetic.

Thanks for your company today and goodnight.

Is this a touch for those on the course?

Always need a bit of luck in majors with the draw.. Looks like calling them back tomorrow with fresh greens and less wind is just that..

Where are the flippers?

Play suspended due to inclement weather

During a massive windstorm, no better place than inside a temporary media tent. I mean, it's got a few steel beams and everything.

Play resumes at lunchtime on Saturday

It seems play will resume at 13:00 BST on Saturday.

That will probably take a couple of hours as all those still out there are past the turn and then round three will begin 30 minutes after round two ends.

We will be in for a late one tomorrow.


Earlier in this live text I mentioned the 199s film Twister and the fact a cow was hurled across a road by a hurricane in it.

It was a gripping watch, but the point I was getting at was just how vicious weather can be in the US and how it can thrust itself upon areas so quickly.

Here we see that in full action as the wind batters Whistling Straits suddenly and the thunder rolls in. Bunker down lads. Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth must be smiling back at their hotels.


We have big breaking news... play is suspended for the day.

The Euro charge

News of other Europeans in the mix - England's Paul Casey and is four under after 16, as is Germany's Marcel Siem after 18; Italy's Francesco Molinari and Germany's Martin Kaymer are three under after 13, England's Luke Donald and Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy are two under after 18...

One to tell your mates...

As the scramble for content to fill this rain delay gather pace. we bring you the key stat of the week...

Rory McIlroy

Run for cover!

We ask fans to seek shelter due to the inclement weather. #PGAChamp

Right then, if this rain is going to delay us it best be proper stuff and no drizzle. 

So, two Aussies lead on nine under - Jason Day (after 14) and Matt Jones (after 12). England's Justin Rose is one back after 17, with David Lingmerth of Swedena and Americans Harris English and Tony Finau on seven under. The projected cut is +2, which means Tiger Woods is probably toast - he's four over after 13 and staring a third successive major cut in the face.

The melancholic sight of Tiger Woods retrieving his ball from the bottom of a green-side hillock and fans streaming towards the gates is punctuated by one player, I couldn't tell you who, strolling back to the clubhouse hand-in-hand with his lovely lady. A metaphor, perhaps...

Play suspended

A worker posts a rain delay on the scoreboard

The projected cut has shifted once again to +2 - and there's the hooter, we're going in for a passing storm. It's not here yet, but there are obviously some lightning strikes forecast...

Bubba Watson, who lost a play-off at Whistling Straits in 2010, taps in for birdie at 16 to get back to -1. Kuchar misreads his par putt at the last and pops in for a round of 72 and four under par.

Rose -8 (17)

South African pair and former major winners Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel could be dark horses this weekend, they're both two under through 17 and hidden in the chasing pack. Rose makes birdie at 17, tucks in behind the leaders on eight under par.

English -7 (14)

Day's birdie attempt just misses on 14, he remains nine under. Harris English moves to -7 with birdie at five, Russell Henley doubles the eighth and drops to six under.

Rose -7 (16), D Johnson -5 (14)

Rose pulls out a plum at 16, flopping out of the rough and tapping in for birdie to get to seven under. It has been brought to my attention that this is the first time Jordan Spieth has made the cut at the US PGA, although it is only his third appearance. Another one gone for Johnson at 14, he's now five under and four off the lead.

Els -3 (14)

Ernie Els

Steele -6 (69)

Two three-putts in a row for Garcia, he stays one under after 16 and another dream appears to be fading. Brendan Steele in the clubhouse on six under, the American carded a second successive 69. Shot gone for Kuchar at 17, he drops to -5.

Day & Jones lead on -9

The leaderboard is proving rather mercurial at the moment, Matt Jones has joined Day atop the leaderboard with a birdie at two, where he nearly chipped in...

Day leads on -9

Brian Gaffney is the first club pro to make the cut since 2011, he carded a second-round 73 and is level overall. We had a three-way tie for the lead on eight under after Russell Henley birdied seven, only for Jason Day to break ranks with a birdie at 13. A bogey for Dustin on the same hole sees him fall to -6.

What a shot!

Molinari -3 (11)

A smile and warm celebration and why not? Francesco Molinari has an awful stance on 11 so whacks one out of the rough onto the dancefloor where a roll or two later, the cup holds the ball. Some hole out. Eagle.

Day -8 (12), D Johnson -7 (12), Fowler E (12), Kaymer -5 (11), Woods +4 (11)

Martin Kaymer needs to club up on the par-three 12th. He's on the green but 30 feet short of the pin. Tiger Woods is better placed, his strike sounded like a jet taking off, a birdie chance and Tiger needs to start making them.

Rickie Fowler brings the prospect of missing the cut closer with a drive out right on 13 and he plays out from the thick stuff to leave an up and down needed for par.

Jason Day, studies his line, visualises, delivers. Lots of spin on that high ball and around 12 feet for birdie.


Rose -6 (15)

I just said these pesky eight footers are the putts champions make, so turn away now if you're a Justin Rose fan as he dribbles one away for par on 15.

A mild show of anger from the Englishman as he talks to himself. "Two good swings there," he says as he rues bogey.


Casey -4 (14)

Paul Casey's momentum is halted, though not by a full road block. A single bogey on 14 as he flunks an eight-foot putt. Those are the ones champions make.

J Day -8 (12), Fowler E (12), D Johnson -7 (12)

Dustin Johnson putts from the fringe of the green but a lack of pace leaves him only a tap-in par.

Rickie Fowler has just seven feet for birdie... nope. Oh Rickie? When will you knit it together in a major? He's delicately poised on level par but one man who joins the lead is Jason Day. Bingo for him from five feet, the ball never deviated. A super tee shot sorted him out there, he'll dream about that strike later.

Do the rain dance, it's coming

Where's the cagoule?

That is not a new species of Lake Michigan fish! @PGAChampionship #StayAway #PlayFasterPlease

D Johnson -7 (11), Day -7 (11)

So you've been warned, a weather warning. This is America after all. I'll never forget watching that film Twister as a kid where a hurricane threw a cow across the road.

Things can change and severely with the elements here, though I'm confident no cattle will be involved today. You may be in for a late finish if there's a delay at worst.

Jason Day sticks one 10 feet from the flag on the 12th to set up birdie on this par three. He watched it all the way, plonk on the green. Dustin Johnson gives his ball the glare now... 20 feet left for birdie.

Beware the weather!

This is not what we want to be reading...

This is turning into a very, very exciting major championship. DJ, Day, Rose, Kuchar, Spieth, Garcia & Kaymer all close to the lead #bbcgolf

Jones leads on his own

Jones -8 (9), Johnson -7 (11)

In seven attempts, Matt Jones has not finished in the top 25 of a major.

The Australian, 35, has one PGA Tour win since turning professional in 2001 but leads the US PGA as Dustin Johnson makes a sloppy bogey on 11 - a par five where Jason Day makes birdie to reach seven under.

A big slip from Dustin.

D Johnson & Jones lead on -8

Finau had a very good chance to get to seven under at the first but didn't hit his birdie putt. Brendan Steele makes eagle at 16 to get the six under. We have a weather warning, we might be going off for a storm in a minute... Matt Jones with a very rare thing, a birdie on 18, to join Dustin on eight under.


Oosthuizen -3 (13)

Louis Oosthuizen

Louis Oosthuizen has got it going a little, all pars and three birdies today. His latest comes on 12 as he tanks one off the tee to within six feet and drops the putt home.

The diminutive South African you'll recall lost out in a play-off at The Open last month. His time?

Rose with a good par save at 13, he stays six under. You can see the rain coming down yonder, it might be at Whistling Straits before long. Henley bogeys four, is six under after 13.

346-yard Dustin...

Johnson -8 (10)

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson finds himself in the lead despite only hitting the fairway three times from seven today. He's also only hit 44% of greens in regulation. It's a bit scrappy but there's nowhere better to be than out front leading.

His biggest drive of the day is a mere 346 yards.

D Johnson leads on -8 (10)

Dustin Johnson

Dustin to go first... perfect pace, perfect line, he grabs the outright lead on eight under. Kaymer makes birdie at nine to get to -4, Casey misses at 12 to remain -5. Day leaves his birdie attempt at 10 a couple of inches to the left, stays six under.

Matt Jones has a chance to grab the outright lead but tugs his birdie putt left at 17. Casey looks very much in the groove, here he is with a very naughty tee shot at the par-three 12th. Day and Dustin both safely on in two at 10 after middling drives.

Casey -5 (11)

Tony Finau out in 31, stays six under. Bit of weather expected at Whistling Straits, apparently, a storm brewing 12 miles north. Casey gets to within two shots of the lead after another birdie at 11.

Sergio having a rattle with the short stick from miles off the front of the 13th green and that's gossamer touch. Jason Day at 10 and he finds the bunker, despite not going for the green. Actually, it came up short. Tiger dropped a shot at eight after thrashing about in the sand and rough, he's now four over.

'Very odd couple of days'

Willett E (18)

Very odd couple of days out there.. Some lovely golf at times!! Putter been very hot and cold.. In it for the weekend!! #WhistlingStraits

Four birdies and a double bogey out there for Willett today in a round of 70 to get him back to level for the tournament.
