So that's where we leave it for today. Round two will be completed on Saturday with play resuming at 07:30 (12:30 BST).

There will be threeballs for the third round and Jason Day will be in the final group, beginning two shots behind Kevin Kisner and the in-form Hideki Matsuyama.

Matsuyama had seven birdies and did not drop a shot in his round of 64

Are Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth out of contention at 10 and 11 shots off the lead respectively? We shall see what transpires. Cheerio now.

Jason Day explains Dustin Johnson offered to race to the final tee to enable the group to beat the suspension of play horn and complete their rounds: "That's the biggest or most clutch thing I have ever seen anyone do for me," he says.

More from Jason Day: "My driving and putting was good today, the two things that haven't been working well. It just felt like the old days. It was only last year I was playing well but it feels like 10 years!"

Some thoughts from Jason Day after his 66 which leaves him in third place, two behind Kisner and Matsuyama.

"I was surprised after we came back from the delay to how receptive the course was, to hit the driver as far as you can knowing the ball is not going to bounce off. It's going to be hard work over the next two days with how Hideki and Kevin are playing but hopefully we will get some nice sunny weather."

Saturday's schedule

It will be another long day...

12:30 BST Remaining players resume second round

14:00 Third round begins

19:00 Leaders tee off

It will be groups of three, rather than two, for the third round.

Six under for Day

An on-course sign informing spectators when the last shuttle bus departs, shines out like a laser show as Day putts for a birdie but it brushes past the left edge and he finishes with a 66 for a six under halfway total, two behind the leaders Kisner and Matsuyama.

There are 77 players on five over or better but the round is not going to be completed today so there will be some business to finish on Saturday morning.

It is extremely gloomy out there now but Day's group are going to complete their rounds, the Australian giving himself a 10-foot birdie chance at the final hole.

Spieth three over

The Open champion drops a shot at the last and finishes with a 73 for a three over halfway total, 11 shots off the lead.

Garcia misses cut

No closing birdie for Masters champion Garcia and he will not be here for the weekend, finishing eight over.

Time running out

The hooter has gone but Day has tapped in for par and wants to complete his round, sprinting off to the final tee.

"Oh no" rings out across the evening air in an Australian accent. Day has pushed his tee shot at the par three 17th but it is pin high and he should have a decent lie.

A five under 66 for Justin Thomas and he is in a share of seventh on three under.

Running down the fairway

We've got players running between shots now in an attempt to complete their rounds and avoid having to come back early in the morning. Why can't we always have this? I don't suppose Beef would be in favour of it though. A reminder that the colourful Englishman withdrew after the first round with a shoulder injury.


Greg Norman, the 'Great White Shark' who was twice a US PGA runner-up, seems to have other things on his mind...

Former Ryder Cup player Francesco Molinari is another with that red mallet putter and he has returned a 64 with it, matching Matsuyama. The Italian, world ranked 21, is five under for the Championship.

-5 C Stroud (12)

Two birdies in a row for that distinctive putting style of Chris Stroud but he misses a putt on the 12th and is back to five.

+2 Spieth (16)

Five pars in a row for The Open champion Jordan Spieth and he remains two over over the Championship with two to play.

+3 Singh (16)

Two 50-something former winners are playing together and 54-year-old Vijay Singh looks set to make the cut after chipping in for an eagle at the seventh, his 16th, to get back to three over. John Daly's trousers are typically indescribable but he's not going to make it, he's 10 over.

-6 Day (15)

An exquisite flop shot over the bunker gives Day a chance to go within one of the leaders but he misses from six feet and stays at minus six.

Lowry loses ground

Shane Lowry had four birdies in six holes to reach two under but a disastrous triple bogey six at the par three 17th resulted in a 69 and a one over halfway total.

Matsuyama finishes joint leader

Matsuyama -8 (18)

Matsuyama misses his birdie chance, but pars the 18th to complete a superb round of 65 which leaves him in the lead on eight under together with Kevin Kisner.

Here's the Japanese player's bunker shot at the 16th that helped save par and keep him on track.

-3 Casey (16)

We haven't see much of Paul Casey today but he has just rolled in his third birdie in succession and he is three under.

As we stand there are 78 players on five over or better so that's looking like the cut mark, which will be one too many for Englishmen Justin Rose and Ross Fisher.

-6 Day (14)

Two birdies in a row for Day and those who thought the storm had derailed his chances were wrong. He negotiates a curling four footer and he is six under now.

-5 Stroud (10)

American Chris Stroud, who did not drop a shot yesterday, reaches five under. He has an unusual putting grip, it's a long putter but he does not anchor it to his body so it's all within the rules and he is in a share of third. My aunt used to putt like that, with a normal size putter, because she was very short.

Matsuyama has a 13-foot putt for birdie, and the lead, at the 18th. Can he finish off a magnificent round in style?

Matsuyama into share of the lead

Matsuyama -8 (17)

Here's the chance for Matsuyama. He's got seven feet on the 17th green to draw level with leader Kevin Kisner.

Never. In. Doubt.

This is a quite brilliant round. Five birdies in six holes now. He couldn't take the outright lead on the last, could he?

Meanwhile, Matsuyama's playing partner Ian Poulter has just fired in a 15 foot putt for birdie to move to +2. He's definitely going to be here for the weekend.

Spieth looks to be a better putter after the delay. You can tell by his speed and demeanour.

After 14 holes

level Koepka; +2 Spieth; +9 Garcia

The big three major winners find it hard going on the 289-yard par four 14th, Garcia sends a chip sailing over the other side of the green into the rough and drops another shot, Koepka misses for par on the left, but Spieth, having played backwards instead of risking going over a bunker with the water beyond, makes par.

-5 Day (13); +1 Johnson

That's more like it from Day, that must have been over 40 feet and it rattles into the cup for a birdie to take him back to five under. DJ cannot match him and he remains at one over.

Matsuyama saves par

Matsuyama -7 (16)

Hideki can do no wrong. He was a tad unfortunate to spin back into the bunker but makes his shot from the sand look simple as ball cuddles up to the flag. The world number three taps in for par to stay one behind Kevin Kisner.

He's got two holes left. Can he draw level?

-4 Day (12)

A 10-foot birdie chance for Day slides by the right edge and he remains four behind clubhouse leader Kevin Kisner. Playing partner Dustin Johnson remains at one over but Henrik Stenson drops back to plus three.

It is a different course after that rain.
