Kiawah Island, SC (Sports Network) - The third round of the PGA Championship
has been suspended for the day Saturday after heavy storms hammered the Ocean
Course at Kiawah Island.
With half of the field still on the course, the third round will resume at
7:45 a.m. ET Sunday. The final round will feature the players in threesomes
off both the first and 10th tees.
When the horn sounded to stop play at 4:50 p.m., Rory McIlroy had just bogeyed
the ninth to fall into a tie for the lead with second-round co-leader Vijay
Singh, who made a ridiculous birdie at the par-5 seventh.
The pair is knotted in first at 6-under par.
Adam Scott is trying for redemption after his collapse at Royal Lytham & St.
Annes three weeks ago and his round on Saturday is doing a lot to help him
reach that goal.
Scott is 4-under on his front nine and is third at minus-5.
Carl Pettersson, one of three second-round leaders, is even on the day and
fourth at 4-under par.
One player who was definitely happy for the suspension had to be Tiger Woods,
the final co-leader from round two.
Woods bogeyed three of his last four holes and has almost 10 feet for par at
the eighth. He fell down to 1-under par for the tournament and is five off the
